Hello all.....My name is Trish, and I am a drug addict and alcoholic.  I am
35, living in Kansas, and the mother to 6 beautiful boys.  Let me tell addictions have really screwed up my life, but today I am clean
and sober, so things can only get better!!

I am glad I ran across this group, and hope to gain some friendships and
support here!  You all have a beautiful day!

Thanks to you and your staff in recovery,
I came in this morning looking to find some answers
and your staff gave me a phone number for alanon,
and suggested I look in my own phone book for Alanon.
Well a phone call later, I found a meeting in our area and
got the help I needed to help  my daughter with her addictions,
whats nice they have the Al-anon and AA meetings at the same
time in  the same building so we can go as a family.
She's now going to AA and I'm going to Al-anon, we wouldn't
have known where to turn if it were not for you and your staff.
Thanks again.

I was in your room earlier this morning looking for help.
I spoke with Lord_Wolf and Bob and they were so very helpful to me.
I wanted to write and tell you how much I appreciate the service, kindness
and help you provide all those coming into the room.

You are very wise to realize that not all towns are big enough to have
all the programs that are needed: AA, NA, SA, OA etc.... Having a place on
the internet allows those of us living in small towns to find the help we need
from caring, qualified people.

Lord_Wolf was able to give me encouragement and helped me to find a place to meet.
Thank you so very much!

Bless you all,

Dear Lord Wolf & RYTHYM:

This site is great, the people here are the most caring and
understanding people. If not for the wonderful people in the chat
room last night, I would be very regretful today. Thank you.

I really like what I have seen of your site so far.My husband is in NA and I am finding ways to support and help him. He lives in Washington right now so we can't be together. I'd like to attend some of the meetings with him so we can feel closer, but I need to coordinate our times.  I'm in the Central Time Zone and he is two hours behind me. and I don't know if he is in your time zone or we are both in different time zones.Can you help?

I just want to say thanks to those who were in the chatroom today.  A good friend pasted away this week, when I came in I was on the edge just hoping for an excuse to get drunk today.  But after talking to others in the room today, and being reminded of three simple questions ( is it my problem, can I change it, and do I need to owne it) I reliezed what it was I trying to - self distruct and blame myself for the actions of others.  So again let me say thanks to you all for being here once again for me.

i like talking on line with aa friend it nice to know that there some out
there that care thank you very much.  because of you i got 3 years clean and so dose my old
man your friend always.   betty

I am thankful and glad your web site is here. However I would like to find other sites thats are availiable 24/7 with live people in them.      If you could please recommend some I would be very grateful.

I found this site while searching the web for a place to have a meeting. Sometimes, which in the time frame I mention, there weren't any meetings going on so I decided to look for the heck of it. With, at the time 10 years of sobriety, you would think a person can be OK all the time. This isn't always true and I needed someone to chat with. With God's grace I found this site and there were people in the chatroom who welcomed me. Immediately I felt at home. Bob was there and helped me get familiar with the chatroom situation and ways to get to this site, as I was unfamiliar with chatrooms at the time. I relocated and haven't visited the site for a while but came back last night for the first time in a couple of months, and guess what, I felt right at home 'again', I was welcomed by a few people who remembered me and we chatted just like in a AA meeting, and nothing makes this alcholic feel better than a meeting. I celebrated 11 years during my couple months away, and believe me this site helps. cefer

I have agorophobia and find it hard to leave the house so i sometimes need to share or hear another addict to know i'm not alone.  Just wanted to say Thank You for all your hard work.  Alice

Thank you I thought I was alone, I will recover this time, and stick to it thank you for being here for me.  I have a short story, thould I had everything in control, but I have to stay sober or I feel I will go crazy. My family tries to help but I need to do this one day at a time  if others can do it I can too!
sincerly Sharon

I just want you to know that I think you guys/gals are simply AWESOME!!!  I'm so glad I found you and hope that you will continue to tolerate ME!!!  I look forward to reading the E-mails and love the chatroom as my schedule permits.  I work in a long-term treatment center--the one where I finally "got it"!! God is good and He made sure my hardheaded behind found my way here....THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL YOU DO!!! With warmest regards and much admiration and heaping amounts of love for my new family---your "red-headed" stepchild, Sue~aka flowerchild :-)

I got to this site while working and getting extremely squirrley and agitated.  My thinking gets me in a great deal of trouble, in short, I make myself as miserble as possible.  Well, I succeeded today, and here I am.  I feel wonderful just knowing there are others out there.
