Hello

I would recommend joining the August clas.It's full of people at the same stage of sobriety as you and going through the same thing. You can post daily,weekly, ten times daily as much or as little as you want on there and the class goes on forever. It's great for posting general thoughts and feelings, ideas, problems,sobreity struggles etc on an ongoing basis. I'm in the Dec 2012 class and still post on there every week

The Newcomers threads tend to be more fast moving and you'll get quicker responses thought it's pretty quiet now,Sunday afternoon/night etc. You can update the thread you've started or start a new thread for responses if you have a specific issue/feeling you would like to discuss.

There are also forums for specific interests such as biking, christians, a mens room, healthy eating and lots more

It seems daunting at first but you'll get the hang of it. don't worry and happy reading

You don't have to do anything to join. Just find Class of August 2013, type a message, and hit reply.

Is this your first time using a message board? Please respond and we'll go from there. I'm trying to determine if you are looking for particular places to go or if you are not familiar at all and are trying to figure the whole thing out.

Hi Minn. We are pretty flexible group. If you have something new feel free to start a new thread. Or if you would like to join a thread feel free to post there too. I tend to post in threads currently running but that is just me...so far. You'll get the hang of it soon.

The August class will be in the Newcomers to Recovery section--I think it says Part 2. Start here.

(Part 1 was the first 10 days then it starts again because it gets really long).

I think there are about five pages now in that thread. Read through them (if you want, you don't have to), then just type a message and hit 'reply'.

Hi Minnesota, welcome! Keep going on the sobriety. It will get easier. If you want to post a new subject, use a new thread. If you want to respond to someone else, click on thanks and the reply will pop up. The weekends are slower here. Will be busier during the week. Hang in there.

You can just bookmark the website and find it anytime you want.

If you log out when you leave, you can just log in when you come back. It's in the top right corner.

FAQ means Frequently Asked Questions, and Sober Recovery has collected a bunch of them together in one place, along with answers. You might find em handy.SoberRecovery : Alcoholism Drug Addiction Help and Information - FAQ

Take some time and look around, Minnesota, I know you will find your way quickly. Please keep reading, posting and asking questions, just as you did here. There is a life without addiction for you out there, and SR can be a great big help. It was for me.
