:c020: Hello Everyone,
I’m kind of confused on how this website works but I’m learning. I want to talk to people who have been down that long hard road of detox, relapse, and recovery. I can’t seem to get out of this circle. I want to get out but as you know it is very hard. I don’t know what to do anymore. My family is here for me but they just don’t know what to do to help me anymore. They haven’t been in my shoes so it’s hard to know what I’m going through. My fiancée found this site for me and I will try anything or a way to get over this. I pray that I can get more help and support from someone here.
If anyone has got some advice for me please let me know, I will definitely try anyway I can to get clean. I want to change and be a better person before it’s too late.
My addiction is pain pills and benzos.

Welcome to Soberrecovery! My family supports me in my recovery and they are not addicts. True they can’t know what I went through when I got clean, so I found other who did in Narcotics Anonymous. Now I am a member of NA and I am grateful to have some time in recovery now. I found some NA meetings through the help of an intensive outpatient program. I went to as many meetings as I could. The people in NA showed me a new way to live. NA is a program for learning. Try it if you haven’t yet. Do you know how to find a meeting near you?September 24, 2016 at 4:18 am #4757554
Hi James, welcome to 12 Step National Meetings!!
So you want to talk with folks who have been where you’ve been? Well, here at the 12 Step National Meetings NA forum is a pretty good start. In my experience, family can be a great source for support, but family can only go so far…they just don’t understand or relate on a deeper level. More often than not, their concern is your safety – as well as their own.
In Narcotics Anonymous we focus on recovery from the disease of addiction – not just getting off of drugs. What drugs we used or became addicted to aren’t the most important issue…like Missy said, recovery in NA is about learning how to live…a new way to live.
Sure….regardless of the substance, we’ve been where you’re at…and we’ve found a way out!! And if you want what we’ve got you’re going to have to be willing to do what we’ve done…and I’m talking about attending meetings, getting a sponsor, working the steps and helping others. 12 Step National Meetings is a good place to start – we share our problems and solutions here.
But if you want to get the most out of recovery, it would be best to go to meetings. You’ll get out of it what you put in to it.
