  • posted I need sober support/community a meeting, anything really. I moved from Pennsylvania to Florida for rehab in 2016 I stayed sober for a couple years (i have never thoroughly gone through the program and I want to so bad.) but eventually starting dipping and dabbing into alcohol (not my doc not that that matters) eventually somehow went back to using again which I never thought I would but things happen. I met my fiance there where he was a meth addict, me heroin we did great for years up until 2020 where we somehow got into the heroin again. He has just gotten out of a detox and his mother picked us up from Florida and took us back to Indiana (his homestate) so now he is going to a PHP program and I am staying at his parents home about 25 minutes outside Indianapolis. I just need support, I need good people in my life to talk to. I need a sponsor a meeting. I want this. I need this I am desperate
    • HeatherO Support can be vital and meetings are tough with COVID safety precautions. I know they are urging people to attend meetings online. Have you tried this?
  • posted Anyone else getting large amounts of snow? Who is attending a meeting online today?

  • posted It is important to walk our talk.

    Not through words but through actions.

    That where integrity is found!

    Today I am where I want to be in my life.

    Thank you all for teaching me how to live!

  • posted I am thinking about starting an online weekly recovery chat in January. Who would be interested?
  • posted Things are starting to shut down again in my state and I am sure this is the case in many others. How is everyone coping? Finding healthy ways to manage stress?
    • HeatherO Thank you for sharing Markus D
    • Markus D How am i staying engaged in my recovery? My...recovery...is my own. And involves far more than just shit drug abuse. My memory and remembering numerous upon numerous times a day who i was, where i was, how i was is how i stay engaged with my ...recovery. My memory and remembering reminds me soooo clearly what will happen to my mind and psyche if i go back to the shit drugs. I...messed myself up real bad on that last shit dope run. Messed my head and psyche up...irrevocably.(the years clean now have proved that out.) I know good and well...i go back to the shit, once i start comin down, i'll be full on schizo. Ive come too far to go back to that. So...just remembering...is how i stay engaged. That...and checkin in on the app here every morning.
    • HeatherO How are you staying engaged in recovery during lockdown mode?

  • posted Let's get a conversation going! What coping mechanisms do you use to avoid triggers and using?
    • HeatherO Thought I had already replied to this. Thank you for sharing this personal story. May help others! So glad someone was able to help you in your time of need!
    • Markus D I...remember how low i was...and how far ive come from the last day i used shit drugs. Im 5 years clean of the shit on nov 11. I remember that last day well...a dude i just met literally shoved a glass pipe full of speed into my chest to smoke--which i did. And began flippin out at my stupidity. A facebook friend id never met worked in the recovery field and got me into a detox in concord, ca that night called Pueblos Del Sol.

      I just ...remember. That stops me
