<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>

Why Drugs and Alcohol Differ


The difference between drugs and alcohol can be classified in terms of their chemical composition and their effects on the body. Chemically, drugs and alcohol are different substances.

Drugs refer to any substance that alters the physical, mental, or emotional state of an individual when ingested, inhaled, or injected into the body. Examples of drugs include cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine, and heroin. 

On the other hand, alcohol refers to a type of organic compound that is produced by the fermentation of sugars found in fruits, grains, or other sources. The effects of drugs and alcohol on the body also differ. While both substances can lead to addiction, dependency, and a wide range of physical and mental health problems, the way they affect the body is unique. Drugs can have different effects on different people, depending on various factors such as the type of drug, dosage, and method of use. 

Depending on the drug type, drugs can affect the central nervous system, heart rate, respiratory system, and can cause hallucinations, delusions, or seizures. 

Alcohol is a central nervous system depressant that can impair judgment, vision, balance, and coordination. Despite the differences, both drugs and alcohol have the potential to cause devastating effects on the individual, their families, and society. Seeking help for substance abuse and addiction is crucial to achieving long-term recovery and living a healthy, fulfilling life. If you or someone you know is struggling with drugs or alcohol, there are resources available for support and treatment.
