I've been on the site for 17 days.. started day one when I decided to get my life together and quit drinking. in 2 1/2 weeks I have met many friends through the forums and chat. It is VERY helpful. Quite unbelievable when you think about total strangers that reach out and try and help other people that have experienced similar problems with alcoholism. My advice.. come here a few times a day minimum. Check in, even if you lurk. Start posting and chatting.. even better. I honestly don't think I could have gone this far..(even though it is very early in my recovery).. without this community..

Welcome aboard!!!!

well I looked through the site a lot last night... i'm surprised nobody has ever recommended it to me. So far i'm digging it. And hell if it helps me stay sober, I consider that a win. I stayed sober for about three months with no treatment, but fell off yesterday... so day one begins... again

Hi Jake! I'm glad you decided to stick around. SR helped me quit a life long drinking habit, and now I'm free. I'm sure you'll find the hope and encouragement you need.

Hi Jake,

Welcome to the site. I recommend that you have a look around. Keep an open-mind and be willing to listen to advice from the members here. It has to be one of the greatest sources of recovery advice on the internet.

Natom.
