New Substance Abuse Meeting In Chat.

Recommended Posts

MaryEllen

A new 12 step meeting on substance abuse is being planned for the chat rooms. It is tentatively being planned for Thursdays 5 pm EST and will be moderated by chat moderator ChefChristina.

If anyone is interested in attending such a meeting, please indicate by posting below or you may contact Stu(princecharmless) and/or Christina for additional details.

Remember, Chat rooms including the AA/NA recovery room require a separate registration to participate.

If you have a pattern of substance abuse and would like to stop, it might greatly benefit you to attend these meetings.

This meeting is in addition to the Sunday night 9pm EST meeting that has existed for years. It does not replace it.

Works out to two PM on my coast, lets see what my Java will pull off though. I have got some kind of conflict on my main computer with a program that keeps corrupting Java for me. Even the Java website can't run the chat part of it sometimes, and other times its great. My laptop runs the Java just fine, I just have to fire two computers up and develop a split personality to be around this joint.

I wish them well, since alcohol and drugs are a big issue for the TG folks here and all over. I want to think that our Sunday gab fest has done some good and will stay as a vital part of the overall program. Tomorrow I will be out of town so I cannot make that one.

Guest miss kindheart

sounds like you might need to download a newer version of Java

I have had trouble in the past doing that

if you go to your Java console and deleate you temp java files it should work

BEFORE Sunday at 9 PM Eastern Time, go over to the Chat Site and register there if you have not. The Mods over there will give you a brief interview and give you some info on how chat works, and unless you tell them you are an admirer or are looking for Date-A-Trans, there will be no problem passing the interview and being welcome.

If another mod has not interviewed you before you come to the Substance Abuse AA/NA chat room, either I or Charlize (who are the room moderators) will do it for you so the head chat administrator does not get on our necks. For me on the left coast the start time is 6PM PDT, and on the right coast it is 9 PM EDT with times in between as you go from west to east.

We are pretty loose there as far as what we do talk about, and if everybody there is clean and sober that night, and not having any cravings or problems, we talk Trans* stuff, or just tell good stories and bad jokes. That can shift direction fast if someone who is hurting and craving comes in, and that becomes an urgent focus. The chat is an hour and a half, but both Charlize and I, and even the others go over time if a sister or brother needs it.

JJ i hope to see you there on Sunday. In the meantime if you can i would look up the NA and AA meetings in your area., usually just a google away. At this point in time so many of us have used drugs as well as alcohol that many AA meetings accept and understand drug abuse as well.

I was never able to quit by myself, most can't, so reaching out as you are doing know is a great step towards a life of freedom.

Hugs,

Charlize

Go to this page

http://www.lauras-playground.com/chat.htm

If you do not see the JAVA plug-in chat utility showing a box in the middle of the page that says Sign In or Register, then you will have to download the JAVA to your computer. There is a button above a large gray space that will appear if you do not have JAVA that takes you to the JAVA download site. If your browser is Google Chrome, you cannot use JAVA, and you will have to download FireFox or Internet Explorer or what Windows 10 now names Microsoft Edge. Go to the JAVA download page, and follow their instructions to download it and install it. You will need to restart the browser AFTER you have installed it. When it opens you may have to give permission for it to run a couple of times before the sign in box appears. If you have not yet registered. you will use the Create New Account feature, which asks for some limited information about you. It asks you to create a UserName which can be the one you use here, or a different version of this name, and you can use the same password you use here in the forums. You may have to wait a couple hours to be approved by the Chat Admin, or at worst overnight.

The interview I spoke of MUST be done in Chat, and is done by using the chat format, which helps you to get used to the forms, and the PM boxes used there. Moderators may contact members without asking permission via PM, but members must ask permission before PMing a moderator or another chat member.

I was hoping to see you there JJ. I also had trouble figuring it out to start. Java can be a bit difficult but the free version is all you need. I have found it well worth the effort. Hopefully you can make it next week.

Hugs,

Charlize

I am a recovering drug addict. I'm clean 18 days now...... I think this may benefit me.  I know i must consider myself a "junkie" forever. My hope that I will always be one in recovery.  My history with dope is vast.............. Maybe? My hand I could offer in support!

Doni i won't be at the meeting at chat tonight (10/15/17) but am there most Sundays.  You would be more than welcome to join us anytime.  There is also a trans* AA meeting which meets 4 days a week now on Zoom where we can have audio and visual contact around the world.  Many of us are both alcoholics well as drug addicts.  Take a look at the Alcohol Forum.  The information on how to join that is pinned there.

 

Hugs,

      Hello "Girl inside my head", welcome!  Certainly do dive in and look about, and ask questions.     Do you have a name that you use, that we could call you?  Cheers, Jani

      That's what I took it to mean, that they could do more.  I think he was just giving an honest appraisal.  30% in top management is really good and I would think this is a high number for financial businesses overall.      Jani

      That sounds pretty good. I wonder why he said it was a "mixed review," unless its just to say that more work needs to be done.  Thanks, Jani.   Carolyn Marie

      Thank you, Dev, and Happy Thanksgiving to all our American members, and best wishes to all our members from around the world.  I hope that everyone has something to be thankful for.  I am thankful I belong to this wonderful community.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Thank you! I'm excited to learn on my journey to self discovery.

      Welcome.  Feel free to dive in and ask questions.  We're all here to help!

      New user as of today.    I struggle as a male but I'm a female trapped in a man's body.    I think and act like a girl but in a man's body.    I someday hope to be the real me.

      Thank you all so much. I really appreciate your responses!   The consensus seems to be to keep it to myself, and be prepared to document potential harassment, and only then make an issue out of it. I think that is the route I'll take. Phew - that's a load off!   @tracy_j, your experience sounds a lot like my potential situation. I really appreciate you sharing that.   I've read the HR policy on the dress code, and it says not to wear anything casual - to keep it business appropriate, which I think even in the unlikely event I'm brave enough to wear woman's clothing to work, so long as it's business-attire, it technically shouldn't be an issue. I took your advice looking at legal issues, and if I'm understanding it correctly, both my state and the federal law protect against discrimination based on sex which may include pregnancy, gender identity, or orientation as well as biological sex organs.

      Congratulations Shawnna on your one year anniversary.  I hope all your dreams come true!    Jani

      Wow, it's been a year on HRT. I have come a long way in a year. If you told me I would still be on cloud 9 back then, I wouldn't have believed you. But here I am and still feeling great. Thank you all for being here and supporting me through this last year. I am looking forward to the things to come.    Hugs    Shawnna
