Hi, my name is Andrea, just wanted to say hi, I'm new to NA, this is my first time using this website at all so I don't really know how it works or what to expect. Anyhow, hi everyone.

Welcome Andrea!  I'm Lillie, an addict in Virginia.  I am glad you found us.  Here is a  Link to NA Recovery's chat room if you'd like to come meet us and say hello.  We are now open 24 hours although you may need to wait a little while for someone to pop in.  Our busiest times are around our online meeting times at 10 pm EST every night. 

We also encourage newcomers to go to local meetings.  Here is the  Link to Narcotics Anonymous' Official Website where you can find out more information about NA and find out where the meetings are in your area. 

Please feel free to ask if you have any questions.

Hi Andrea,

Welcome to our online recovery family!  I look forward to getting to know you here, and/or in the chat room. 

"FAITH is when you have come to the edge of all the light that you know and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown... Faith is knowing that one of two things will happen: There will be something solid to stand on or you will be taught how to fly."
