One thing you can also do friend is join a Coven. You can surround yourself with people who might be able to help you. I would avoid the Spell Casters Coven as it is sort of a playground really. Black Cross is a larger one, and might help you. If not choose one that suits your fancy.
Also if you haven't already done so, I'd go to the Basics thread and memorize that as it will be your best friend in Magick.
