New to online recovery!


Hi guys. I'm Adam, and I'm an addict. I have over 6 years clean, but sometimes my schedule doesn't permit me to make local meetings. I figured it wouldn't hurt to have another weapon in my recovery arsenal. I'm hoping to expand my network, get help, as well as give it where I can!

6 years sounds great. and I am sure I can learn a lot from you. Online support can be wonderful when it's hard to make the connections out there in "the real world".

Welcome!

I find this website to be a nice supplement to face to face meetings. And it's open for business 24/7.

Great to meet you Adam! I've found that SR makes a very good weapon.

Hope to hear more from you - congrats on your 6 sober & sane years. Well done.
