Check Out These AA Options During Corona Virus Shut Down
Need to talk to someone about cravings, but you're socially, environmentally, mentally or transportationally challenged (I mean esp. with this Corona Virus Outbreak)? Here's a few suggestions.
* REDDIT - Register with Reddit and you have a whole forum of not just alcohol and drug based threads, you have pretty much anything you can find. I'm a moderator on the Sherry Papini subreddit because when I want to have a drink I go try and solve kidnappings. There is a r/Roastme subreddit if humorous trolling brings about your flavor of catharsis. There's r/alcoholicsanonymous if you want to go talk to someone about what you are feeling, someone will surely help you.
* CYBER SOBER- Some sites are just for people needing help and some of these sites you can actually register, pay a fee and they will sign off on your court ordered stuff. Isn't that amazing? Honestly, if you don't have people up front and personal calling you on your shit I don't know how long your sobriety is going to last and how long sites alone work. Pray tell if you've had that solitary experience. Here are a few of the websites and directories I have found:
* PHONE A RANDOM - If you call intergroup which is the main AA hub for telling you where meetings are you'll get a volunteer whose job is to be of service to those who need directions or a listening ear. You can look up intergroup in your area for the exact number.
* ONLINE CHAT - These are less formal than the meetings where there is curriculum. With the meetings you have to wait until a specific time and follow the meeting format, here you can just go and get a load off your chest. I Just found this one https://stepchat.com/chat/room1.htm. I'm gonna try it out, I'll let you know how it goes.
