Has anyone been to a local AA meeting? I'm really struggling and want to get some help but I've heard mixed reviews. Any feedback on experience and which location would be helpful!

Hi! Feel free to DM for additional info but there are lots of options.

1) Plenty of AA groups, I don’t intend to discredit AA as they’ve helped a ton of people this wasn’t personally for me as someone non-religious. The 12 steps can certainly be flexed where your “higher power” could be anything, but I felt it was more backwards focused looking at what you have done rather than being forward looking and positive (again this is just my personal feeling from experience)
2) Recovery Dharma: based on Buddhist principles but does not feel religious at all. If mindfulness and meditation are things that resonate with you I’d give it a look
3) SMART recovery: Far fewer meetings in Denver but takes a completely different approach to AA. Focus is more on self empowerment. Relapses are treated as something you learn from and don’t beat yourself up over. If you want to count days that’s up to you.

I can guarantee you’ll meet amazing supportive people at any of these.

Denver is also lucky enough to be where the Phoenix was founded. https://thephoenix.org
It’s a free gym/sober community for anyone who has been sober 48 hours. If a recovery meeting seems scary at first try and workout or a hike. You’ll meet inspiring people who’ve been in similar shoes to yourself.


One of the leaders at my gym helps to run Phoenix, so if you need help getting connected feel free to DM me and I can get you in touch. He is an awesome guy.


I have not in Denver (not currently living there), you have the meeting finder app? I find the meetings very welcoming where ever I go. Has changed my life more than I could have ever imagined. App is here


Thank you so much!


My dad went to the one on 14th and liked it!

I felt like a walking zombie during thanksgiving, barely eating and barely talking. My family is small and I told them ahead of time my relationship ended. I focused on my niece and nephews, cried when I wanted to and slept from 8pm-noon for the last 5 days. Showered once or twice. That’s the best I could do and that’s OK right now. I’m back in my apartment, just trying to take it one day at a time, and not re read his texts too much. My birthday is Thursday 🙄

Hey Denver 🐠!


Considering a move to Denver from Austin, TX. Pretty tired of the heat and regressive politics of Texas. Curious to know if anyone in the Denver bowl moved from Austin, how they feel about it, and what they’d say to someone who was considering the move.


This is PSA: People please, do NOT solo climb out here. It is dangerous and I've heard too many horror stories lately. Be safe out here!


Renting out my townhome 3 bed, 2.5 bath, 2 car garage in a great location and neighborhood, only 15min from LODO / downtown / highlands and close to all major highways to get to the mountains. Furnished and looking for long term rental. Landscaping, trash, and snow removal covered. DM me for details if you're interested.

Moving today from 1 apartment to another in the same community and the guys are saying the customary tip per mover is $200 each on top of the hourly rate charged. That seems very high to me considering 2 years ago when I moved with the same company their crew said about $50 each was customary tip. Are these new guys swindling me for big tips or is $200 each normal?


Looking for Tech roles in Denver, any recommendations?

Considering moving to Denver to be closer to nature and family. Husband and I can easily transfer jobs. No kids yet but ideally soon.

We live in Chicago (Lincoln park) and love it - the walkability, bar and restaurant scene, shopping, cleanliness, etc. - and are trying to find similar neighborhoods in the Denver area. I’d like something bougie (not afraid to admit it), safe, with single family homes and that’s not too hipster/crunchy/west coast grunge. Any neighborhood recommendations?

Any realtors in this bowl open to chatting?
