    Using the forums/counselling if not using alcohol or drugs

    Sat Feb 02, 2019 1:10 pm

    Hi,
    I have a question about these services? Are they available for drug and alcohol use only or for other issues too? Just wanting clarification please.... the program title “counselling online” suggests it could be for any services....

    Hi Idkme,

    Thank you for asking this question and appreciate your time coming on the Forum.

    The counselling online, is a peer supportive community where people affected by alcohol and other drugs (AOD) use can connect with each other to access information, share stories and discuss relevant strategies for change and recovery. This forum is specific for alcohol and other drugs.

    I have also emailed you.

    Kind Regards,

    Blippi

    12 steps - need a hand

    Mon Apr 15, 2019 9:05 am

    Hi
    I am in recovery (nearly 3 months sober) and working through the AA 12 steps - have become stuck on steps 4 and 5. Can someone help with this- have been away for the last 5 weeks and a bit unsure as to whether i go back to my sponsor - or talk to someone at an AA meeting. :?

    Hello @Bird Bath

    Thanks for reaching out and well done on the 3 months sober !
    It is about how comfortable you are in talking about those steps and your experience.

    I hope this helps,

    Hey there @Idkme @Bird Bath - it has been awhile since you posted last and just wondering how you are travelling? We are here to support you and also share similar experiences with other members, especially in these strange times! It is always great to see what people have been up to and also any strategies that you might want to share with other members :) :)
