Hi, I'm Indigo


I have yet to become sober. I know I have a problem. I wanted to find a forum first and go from there.

Hey indigo! Welcome! I joined the forum before I became sober. It was my rock at the beginning.

Good to meet you, Indigo I wasn't sober when I joined either - but after reading & posting for a while, I found the courage to change my life. It helps to share thoughts with those who have been there & understand. Glad you found us.

welcome, Indigo.
i read a forum for several weeks before i got sober; it felt bizarre, the disjointed dissonance of reading sober people while sitting, drinking.
but it was a step on the road for me, and i've moved on to soberland from there.
good to see you taking steps.
