1. I am also powerless over politics..I think I got to know every little fact or idea that is going on.

An the truth is I don't need to know. My congress woman, Jan Shakowsky, is strongly against Trump, as are the two Illinois senators. I have no say on what Trump says or does, and very little of what he says or does affects me. Yes, he is bad for the country, but I do not have the power to impeach. and following politics makes me angry. What is the point of being angry most of the time? But, and this is an important but, I am addicted to politics especially presidential politics. (for many, many years)
...I guess that what this group is all about. Addiction and Recovery

2. Is this in general?

Or does it happen at meetings?
