Default New to forum

Hi, my name is Renee and I am new to this forum. I am on my second week of using subutex, and I am finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel. I have been feeling 'normal' for the first time in a very, very long time. So much so, I actually cried tears of joy yesterday. I will give more information about me later, but for now I just wanted to Thank everyone here for the support that I so badly need. I pray that I will be of help as well and we can beat this together! I hope I am posting this the right way and at the right place, as it will take me a bit of time to learn to navigate this. Yay for us that we are here and taking the necessary steps to be free again! I would love to make new friends so please contact me, or do I contact you? I'm not sure. Any advice would be great! xo

Hi Renee01, welcome. That's great that you made the steps to get your life back!

As for contacting people, Addiction Survivors is an anonymous forum, as outlined in the policies and welcome thread:

Private information:

Protect your anonymity. If you identify yourself it may influence what you share and prevent you from being honest and forthcoming on the forum, reducing the benefit you receive. This is an anonymous forum and you are not obligated to identify yourself in any way to anyone, including the admins. Please do not post your email address or any other personal identifying information.

If you're looking for some face-to-face support to augment online support here are some different peer support groups that may be of interest:

Celebrate Recovery
Christian-based recovery meetings.

A non-religious self-help recovery organization for individuals who seek group support to achieve abstinence from alcohol and other addictive drugs.

Smart Recovery
Self Management and Recovery Training. Based on ever-evolving scientific knowledge.

Secular Organizations for Sobriety
Self-empowerment approach to recovery.

Women for Sobriety
Peer support for helping women overcome alcohol dependence and other addictions.



We have chats here 2 night a week, feel free to stop by, if you'd like. Here's the link that explains it all:

Again welcome and hope to hear more from you.

Hi Nancy, thank you for the information. I probably didn't make it clear what I meant regarding "contacting people". On other sites, you can speak to eachother through "friending", so to speak, in case you have other questions directed at that person. It will take me awhile to get used to this site. Thank you again for your concern
