<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>

Mixed Feelings About Recovery


Ambivalence is a common experience among those in recovery from substance use. It refers to having mixed feelings or conflicting thoughts about drug use. On one hand, someone in recovery may want to stop using drugs and improve their life. They may recognize the negative impact drug use has had on their relationships, finances, and health. However, on the other hand, they may still have cravings for drugs, or feel like they are missing out on the positive experiences associated with drug use.  

This ambivalence can create a sense of internal conflict, making it difficult for someone to make progress in their recovery. It's important to acknowledge these conflicting thoughts and feelings, rather than trying to suppress them. It's normal to have ambivalent feelings about drug use, especially in the early stages of recovery.  One way to address ambivalence is to focus on the tangible benefits of sobriety. This might include improved mental and physical health, better relationships, improved job performance, or simply feeling more stable and in control.

It's helpful to engage in activities that bring meaning and purpose to life. This might include volunteering, pursuing hobbies, or spending time with loved ones.  Ultimately, the key to overcoming ambivalence is to take action towards your goals, even if you're not feeling completely committed or motivated. It's through taking action that we can build momentum, gain confidence, and see the positive results of our efforts. Over time, the internal conflict surrounding drug use may diminish, and a sense of clarity and purpose can emerge.
