<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 The Past


Dealing with the past can be a difficult and challenging task, especially if it involves traumatic experiences or mistakes we have made. However, it is an essential step to move forward and live a fulfilling life. One strategy to deal with the past is to acknowledge the feelings and emotions associated with it. This means allowing yourself to feel the pain, anger, or guilt that may arise from revisiting past events. 

For those who repeatedly experienced episodes of decompression or relapsed when being asked to "do an inventory" or a particular "step" that's usually a good sign that something needs to be explored with a qualified professional who advertises experience in working with clients who have trauma experience.

Being asked to rip the band-aids off of your deepest wounds and confide them to a stranger is NOT a one-size-fits-all approach to recovery!

It can be helpful to write down or talk about your feelings with someone you trust, such as a therapist or a trudging buddy. Another approach is to focus on the present moment and take actions that align with your values and aspirations. Engaging in activities that give you a sense of purpose and satisfaction can boost your self-esteem and help you move beyond past mistakes or trauma. 

It is also important to forgive yourself and others for past mistakes or hurts. This does not mean forgetting or minimizing what has happened, but rather acknowledging the pain and choosing to let go of resentment and bitterness. Forgiveness can be a powerful pathway to healing and growth. Lastly, seeking support from a person or a community can be invaluable in dealing with the past. 

Connecting with others who have gone through similar experiences can provide a sense of belonging and empathy. There are different resources available, including support groups, hotlines, and online forums. Dealing with the past can be a challenging process, but it is an opportunity to heal, grow, and live a meaningful life. By acknowledging and addressing our feelings, staying connected to our values, and seeking support, we can move beyond past struggles and build a better future.
