I am both codependant and a love addict. The SLAA and Coda meetings are spot on for my situation. I don't have a sponsor for my SLAA meeting but someone has reached out to help me in anyway with Coda. I'm still pretty new to all this. Does it matter which 12-step I start out with. Can a person do more than one 12-step at a time. At my Coda meeting today someone said "at the heart of every addiction is codependancy" If that's the case, should I do the Coda 12-step first and then SLAA?
Yes, it does matter. Do them from 1 to 12. Don't skip steps. They are designed to take you through birth, teen years, adulthood. They are building blocks that should not be skipped. We LAs already skipped a lot of steps to begin with. It's what got us in trouble in the first place. Don't skips steps.

I work more than one 12 step programs. I think it's fine to do 2 at once (necessary, even) but make sure to keep them separate and do the steps in order. Great that you got a CoDA one, try for one in SLAA too. nice work!
