GROUND RULES

 

Please be friendly with your new friends. We do NOT owe ANYBODY a platform on which to demean others.

 

PLEASE TYPE !REPORT IF SOMEONE IS CAUSING A DISRUPTION

 

NACHATROOM.ORG has disabled private messaging to combat financial/sexual predation, harassment, gossip, and exchanging drugs. We have all communications out in the open where everybody can see them and a moderator can remove anybody engaging in behavior that jeopardizes individual recovery or makes the room unsafe. Please do not circumvent this by providing offline contact information - email address, social media profile, messenger handle, txt message, phone etc. PLEASE safeguard your anonymity - not everybody here is clean or working the NA program. To protect the group from predatory behavior we kick those who ignore this rule.

 

There are 19 chatters on the site right now. We had 21 in attendance at the last meeting.

NACHATROOM.ORG holds its next online NA meeting in 9 hour(s) and 50 minutes.

 

There is no nabyphone.com teleconference meeting in progress right now.

 

Please refrain from discussion of violence, sexual exploitation, politics, religion, attacking someone elses character or recovery or clean time -- or your perception of it. You are NOT REQUIRED to inform us if you are on "MAT" or psych meds. See the NA pamphlet "in times of illness." Nobody here speaks for NA or this website. If it's not in our literature it is NOT the NA program, it's just somebody's opinion or experience.

 

NACHATROOM.ORG - Online NA Chat and Meetings, Narcotics Anonymous Chatroom

Welcome! We are a group of Narcotics Anonymous with daily online (and teleconference) meetings where those seeking recovery can chat 24/7 for support and fellowship. No registration is required. You do not have to use your real name and we will NEVER ask for your contact information.

We have our online NA meeting every day at 8:00pm Eastern Standard Time. If you're not sure when that is, just type !nextmeeting into the chatroom for a countdown. Throughout the day, our chat robot JFT_BOT announces as many as 5-10 teleconference meetings you can dial into and participate in over on NABYPHONE.COM. We don't run those, your privacy is assured. The bot will remind everyone five minutes beforehand and provide the telephone number and access code to dial when the meeting starts. Click "Meeting Schedule" over on the right for a PDF schedule.

There is no membership list here -- if you are here, you're a part of this thing.

Just click the red "ENTER CHAT NOW" button and pick a nickname, to instantly join the room and begin talking to other recovering members who are here to share their experience, strength, and hope with each other! Don't be afraid to just listen. Or share whatever you feel comfortable sharing, especially if it will get you through today.

Our primary purpose is to carry the message of NA to the addict who is still suffering. In NA, we like to say that NA = "Never Alone."

NA has only ONE promise to make, and that is: "The message is that an addict, any addict, can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use, and find a new way to live.... That is all we have to give." (NA Basic Text, 5th Ed., p. 65)

You do not need to have stopped using drugs to come to Narcotics Anonymous meetings. All you need is to have a desire to stop using drugs. If you are not sure whether you have a problem (or a desire) but think your life would be better if you abstained from drugs you are probably in the right place.

We need a few people to stick around, greet, welcome, and encourage visitors! This may be their first exposure to an NA group.

Non-Affiliation Statement

Any two or three addicts gathered together may call themselves an N.A. group, provided that, as a group, they have no other affiliation. This website is not endorsed by any Narcotics Anonymous entity other than NACHATROOM.ORG. We have no affiliation whatsoever with Narcotics Anonymous World Services. We are merely "one group" out of more than 63,000 groups. Nor are we even the only NA group online.

We do not correspond with or cooperate with outside entities including criminal justice or supervision officials. We do NOT collect ANY information about our visitors and we have no way to prove that a client was in fact the person sitting at the keyboard. Therefore we cannot "sign court cards" or other cards for clinics, sober living, etc. There are no private messaging capabilities and abusive chatters are immediately removed.

These are public IRC chatrooms, anyone can join and say just about anything. It is the responsibility of the moderators on duty and present in the room to deal with abusive or inappropriate behavior. We have NO AFFILIATION with NABYPHONE.COM or any recovery or treatment programs, including those whose formats may be featured in a one hour meeting on this website. Neither NACHATROOM.ORG nor its IRC network NEVERALONECLUB.ORG "takes sides" in chatroom disputes, as we have no ability to investigate who said what after the fact.
