Are there other meetings I can join?

Yes, lots of them, all around the world.  We focus on secular meetings, not traditional non-secular meetings, of which there are many more but you have options.  There are a limited number of secular meetings in South Africa, but if you have access to the internet then you can make use of the Worldwide Secular Meetings and 24/7 Meetings Google Calendar – the click the link to the full calendar. This calendar accounts for time zones and daylight savings, and makes it very easy to find a meeting that’s running when you need one. This is an awesome resource.

Also have a look at Secular AA Online Meetings, which is a big list of global online secular meetings.

Do you have any recommended reading?

As a group we have read Jeffery Munn’s book entitled Staying Sober Without God.  If you want to get sober without adopting the belief in God that is often pushed in AA, NA, and other 12-step meetings and you want a practical, no-nonsense, psychology-based approach to sobriety that is rooted in down-to-earth principles and actions, Staying Sober Without God is a guide that will help you do just that.
