NACHATROOM.ORG - A word about traditions
We are here to carry the message of Narcotics Anonymous and help the addict who wants to stop using drugs and find a new way to live.
This room is closed to addicts or people who think they may have a substance use disorder.
NA Tradition 1: Our common welfare should come first; personal recovery depends on NA unity.
Our 3rd Tradition states that "the only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using." In accordance with that, we don't have any guidelines about participating in chat while under the influence so long as members who participate while intoxicated are not abusive or disruptive.
Part of being a supportive environment means taking you at your best and your worst.
That said, lashing out at the group or taking advantage of the relative anonymity of the Internet (so as to use other chatters as a punching bag) is not conducive to the desired atmosphere of recovery here. We can't sit here addressing personal vendettas or complaints about the website at the expense of the group or the newcomer in here seeking help.
If you have feedback or criticisms please email the webmaster and we will all review them as a team. We aren't going to litigate these issues openly in the chatroom, especially if this is your first time here and you have strong opinions about how the website should be run.
NACHATROOM.ORG - RULE NUMBER 1
Whether or not directly addressed by a written "rule," if a moderator says you need to change the subject or stop doing something, please follow their instructions. We're here to let you know when a conversation is getting out of hand.
We want people to have fun while they're here but we cannot let it get out of hand when we have new people in the room asking for help. The moderators will ask people to refocus.
NACHATROOM.ORG - BASIC RULES/GUIDELINES.
NACHATROOM.ORG - A word about some things we're not.
Discussion of sexual compulsion, addiction to pornography, etc is not an appropriate topic for the room. Please private message a moderator (people with symbols next to their name) for a confidential referral to other sites that can help you.
We do not discuss ways and means of using drugs, how to beat a piss test, or give advice on tapering, "do I have a medical emergency" , dosage, overdosage, etc. There is another chatroom focused on harm reduction at www.tripsit.me. We neither endorse nor oppose them.
Our primary purpose is to carry the message of Narcotics Anonymous to the addict who is still suffering. If you are a family member or friend of an addict, please visit www.nar-anon.org.
We can't tell you if your loved one is an addict, but you are welcome to send them here.
