Hello and welcome
With the new year (new decade!) and new year’s resolutions fresh on everyone’s mind this is a great time to be starting your sobriety journey and this forum is a wonderful resource to support you.
Apparently at the latest count there are something like 20,000 people with an account and over 300 active daily users which is amazing! We are people from all over the world who are working out how to do life sober - from alcohol, other drugs, sex and love addictions, self harm… We all have different stories and are at different places in our journey but we are all here today, and that’s what matters!
The frequently asked questions thread has a collection of some really useful topics that pretty much all of us have asked or thought about at one time or another.
Some of the posts are quite old and not everyone on them will be around any more, but there is some great content there. Use the search bar in the top right to have a look through if you’re after something more specific.
One of the best pieces of advice I see here (and give) often is to read, read and read some more. You might be surprised at how much you can relate to someone on the face of it very different from you, or you might find just the answer you’re looking for.
Keep checking in and reach out whenever you need to
