<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>

Dual Diagnosis in Recovery


Depression is a mental health condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It's something that can be challenging to deal with, but there are things you can do to cope with it. 

Life and society are both a little stressful at the moment in case you didn't notice. There is nothing wrong with reacting to that kind of stress negatively. There is no pill we can take that is going to make society "not stressful" -- if there is, we're here because its a problem now!

Firstly, it's essential to understand that depression is not your fault. It's a medical condition that requires treatment, and it's nothing to be ashamed of. If you're experiencing symptoms of depression, the best thing you can do is seek help from a licensed therapist, counselor, or doctor. Beyond professional help, there are things you can do to manage your depression symptoms. 

One of the most important things is to practice self-care regularly. This might mean taking a bubble bath, going for a walk, or indulging in your favorite hobby. It's also important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. This includes eating a balanced diet, getting enough sleep, and exercising regularly. Exercise is an especially effective way to manage depression symptoms as it releases endorphins, which are natural mood-boosters. 

Aside from self-care and lifestyle changes, finding a supportive network can make a significant difference in coping with depression. Reach out to friends and family members you trust, and consider joining a support group. Meeting with others who understand what you're going through can be validating and helpful. If you're experiencing depression, know that you're not alone, and there are things you can do to take action today. With the help of professionals, self-care, lifestyle changes, and support, individuals coping with depression can manage their symptoms and live fulfilling lives.
