<p>NACHATROOM.ORG - Online Narcotics Anonymous Meetings & Chatroom <p> <p>We were a group of Narcotics Anonymous with two daily online meetings where addicts seeking recovery can chat 24/7 for support and fellowship. It's free. No registration is required, and we don't ask for your contact info or e-mail address. A first name or a chat handle will suffice.<p> Just type a nickname into the chat box above and click "connect" to instantly join the room and begin talking to other recovering addicts who are here to share their experience, strength, and hope with each other!</p> You can choose to remain anonymous if you wish, the chatroom will give you a name like "NAGuest123" by default. Don't be afraid to just listen. Or share whatever you feel comfortable sharing, especially if it will get you through today.<p> We welcome you whether you identify as an addict, an "alcoholic," (in NA, alcohol is a drug), or are just starting to wonder whether you have a problem.<p> Our primary purpose is to carry the message of NA to the addict who is still suffering. In NA, we like to say that NA = "Never Alone." <p> NA has only ONE promise to make, and that is: <p> "The message is that an addict, any addict, can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use, and find a new way to live.... That is all we have to give." (NA Basic Text, 5th Ed., p. 65) <p> At all other times this is "open chat," making it more like what we call "fellowship" in NA, rather than what we would call a "meeting." Feel free to suggest a recovery topic or type !jft to play the NA Just For Today meditation.<p> We have no affiliation whatsoever with Narcotics Anonymous World Services. We are merely "one group" out of more than 63,000 groups. Nor are we even the only NA group online. <p> Please stick around and greet visitors! This may be their first exposure to an NA group. <p> <p>Any two or three addicts gathered together may call themselves an N.A. group, provided that, as a group, they have no other affiliation. This website is not endorsed by any Narcotics Anonymous entity other than NACHATROOM.ORG. This website no longer hosts a chatroom meetings in the "NA" format.<p> I don't care how attached anyone is to them, they're all disease and no solution. People aren't going to meetings or reading literature. You need to give them an engaging topic while you still have them on the line.<p> We have moved to <a href="https://www.neveraloneclub.org" target="new">https://www.neveraloneclub.org</a> <p> Our official blog is <a href="https://blog.neveraloneclub.org" target="new">https://blog.neveraloneclub.org</a>. This will give you some examples of what a discussion topic may look like in a future meeting. <p> Meetings and recovery topics will resume on NEVERALONECLUB.ORG in April of 2023. They will be in a secular, non-NA format. <p>

Affirmations to Stay on Track


Staying motivated and on track with your recovery goals is an ongoing process that requires daily effort and dedication. One way to stay focused on your recovery is by using mantras or daily affirmations. Here are a few examples that you can start using today:

"I am worthy of a healthy and fulfilling life." - This affirmation reminds us that we deserve to be happy and healthy, and that our recovery is worth fighting for.

"I choose to be sober today." - This choice is one that we must make every day, and this mantra helps us stay committed to sobriety.

"I trust the process of recovery." - This affirmation reminds us that recovery is a process, and that even though it may be difficult at times, we can trust that it will lead us to a better life.

"I am grateful for my sobriety." - Gratitude helps us stay positive and focused on the good things in our lives, including our sobriety.

"My progress, not perfection, is what matters." - This affirmation reminds us that recovery is not about being perfect, but rather about making progress and moving forward.

Using these mantras or daily affirmations can help us stay motivated and focused on our recovery goals. By repeating them regularly, we can reinforce positive beliefs and behaviors, and build a strong foundation for lasting recovery. Remember, recovery is a journey, and each day is an opportunity to take a step forward.

Some activities and diversions someone can engage in instead of getting drunk or high today include exercise, art, volunteering, or simply spending time with loved ones. 

Exercise can provide a natural high and release endorphins, which can improve mood and reduce stress. Art, whether it be painting, writing, or music, can provide an outlet for self-expression and creativity. 

Volunteering can provide a sense of purpose and fulfillment, and help individuals feel connected to their community. Listening to  newcomer with even less time - or going through the same things you are - helps us feel less alienated and alone. This also gets us "out of our own head" for awhile.

Spending time with loved ones can provide a sense of belonging and support, and offer a distraction from cravings or negative thoughts.

If you're a little short on friends and loves ones at this time -- you are not alone in that.

It's important to remember that recovery looks different for everyone, and finding activities and diversions that work for you may take some trial and error. The key is to experiment and find what brings you joy and fulfillment, and to make it a regular part of your daily routine. 

Here are some tips to help you stay motivated and encourage others:

  • Celebrate your successes: It's important to recognize and celebrate your progress, no matter how small or large it may be. Take time to acknowledge and reward yourself for achieving your goals. This will help keep you motivated and inspire others in the room to keep pushing forward.
  • Set new goals: Once you've achieved your initial recovery goals, it's important to set new ones that will challenge and inspire you. This will help prevent complacency and keep you motivated to continue making progress.
  • Stay focused: Focus on what you can control, which is your own actions and behaviors. Don't compare your progress to others in the room, but rather focus on your own journey and what you need to do to continue moving forward.
  • Reach out for help: Don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it. Whether it's from a therapist, sober coach, or support group, reaching out for help can provide you with the support and encouragement you need to stay motivated.
  • Be a source of encouragement for others: Encourage and support those who are struggling in their recovery. Offer kind words, share your own experiences, and be a listening ear. By helping others, you can also stay motivated and inspired to continue on your own personal journey of recovery. Remember, recovery is an ongoing process, and staying motivated and encouraging others is a vital component of long-term success. Keep pushing forward, stay focused, and never give up hope. 

Setting realistic recovery goals is crucial to the success of your journey. It's important to remember that recovery is not a one-size-fits-all process, and what works for one person may not work for another. Therefore, setting realistic goals that are tailored to your specific needs can help you stay motivated and focused on your progress.

When setting your goals, make sure they are achievable and within reach. It's okay to start small and gradually work your way up. For example, if your goal is to quit smoking, start by reducing the number of cigarettes you smoke each day instead of going cold turkey. 

Instead of dwelling on your setbacks, focus on what you've accomplished so far and how far you've come. "Being gentle with yourself" means acknowledging your progress and celebrating your achievements, no matter how small they may seem. 

Remember to start small, be patient, and celebrate your progress. You've got this! 

Congratulations to those of you who are making progress in your recovery! It takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and courage to overcome addiction, and I commend your efforts. However, staying motivated can be a challenge, especially when faced with the ups and downs of recovery.
