<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>

Dealing With Peer Pressure


Dealing with peer pressure can be challenging, but it's an essential aspect of maintaining sobriety. At times, your friends might push you to engage in activities that don't align with your recovery goals. You might feel the urge to give in to the pressure and feel like you're missing out on something fun. However, it's crucial to remember that your recovery is more important than anything else. Here are some strategies to help you deal with peer pressure: 

Be honest: If a friend offers you a drink or drug, be honest with them about your recovery. Explain that you can't participate in certain activities or events because they can trigger relapse. True friends will respect your decision and support you. 

Have a plan: It's essential to have a plan in place for how to handle peer pressure. Consider what situations you might encounter and plan for how you will respond. Having a plan in place can make it easier to resist peer pressure. 

Find supportive friends - Surround yourself with supportive, sober friends who understand your recovery journey. Having friends who share your values and goals can make it easier to resist peer pressure. 

Focus on the positives. Remind yourself of the reasons why you chose to get sober. Focus on the positive aspects of sobriety, such as increased clarity, better relationships, and improved health. When you're feeling tempted, remind yourself of these benefits. Dealing with peer pressure can be difficult, but it's essential if you want to maintain your sobriety. 

Remember that your recovery is the most important thing, and don't be afraid to say no to activities or events that don't align with your goals. Surround yourself with supportive friends who share your values, and focus on the positive aspects of sobriety. With time, dealing with peer pressure will become easier, and you'll be able to navigate situations with confidence and grace.
