I just found out about this site & am having trouble finding forums &/or discussions….I’ve was in AA for many, many years, & didn’t drink for 23 years….being older, I found a new addiction, prescription pain pills, reared its ugly head.. I justified it, as many do, & was out of control for about 10 years….have been in recovery, for 2 years, under doctors care. I would like to hear how people cope once they are completely weened off everything….February 16, 2017 at 10:01 am #616

I have been struggling with narcotic addiction for years…in and out of rehabilitation centers mostly through family intervention. It’s time for a change and this time I want to do it for myself. Curious what helps others most through the beginning of working the 12 steps? Any responses appreciated!July 5, 2018 at 6:02 am #906
I read the poetry section on this site…really inspired me. Start there. Read quotes everyday. Find meetings. Find people who can relate. Keep talking on here and sharing. Every word and every day gets better.July 5, 2018 at 6:03 am #907
