Hello, I’m looking for accountability partners to help quit smoking hookah. I was clean for about 3 yrs, and have relapsed recently and finding it hard to quit smoking it.

I’m looking to stop vaping - I can’t even imagine doing so. I’m here to check in with you guys as well

Same here - when I got sober (rehab)— started smoking cigs again to fill the void… and then I started vaping so I didnt have to smell like smoke. I vape way more than I ever smoked


It’s been 2 weeks since I quit vaping - was a heavy smoker, moved to even heavier vaping. Successful so far with combination of nicotine gum + komuso to help with breathing and habit. There are cheaper options for Komuso so check it out


Thank you! I’ll check it out

Ahhhh stopping cigarettes was harder than drinking. Chantix did it for me though. It took the rush and good feelings of smoking away so I was just left with the gross smell and no longer wanted it.

Messed with my sleep, but after a month I weened off the chantix and haven’t smoked since. Been 2 years.


Great! Congratulations!

I need to quit smoking cigarettes :(

How did you stay clean for 3 years? That’s amazing progress! You might want to revisit your own journey.


Sure thing!

I'm subscribed to this daily "Just for Today" email from NA, thought today's was especially worth a read

"Some of us, well accustomed to leaving our personal responsibilities to others, may attempt the same behavior in recovery.  We quickly find out it doesn’t work.

For instance, we are considering making a change in our lives, so we call our sponsor and ask what we should do.  Under the guise of seeking direction, we are actually asking our sponsor to assume responsibility for making..."

What do you do when you’re already on the precipice of a mental breakdown, doing as much as you can 11/day with 9 accounts because we’re down staff and your supervisor says: your permanence is lacking


What's the best way to be supportive of a partner who struggles with addictive tendencies?


Just did an export of my spending for the year to do a full breakdown. I spent almost $2k on liquor in the 6 months before I went into treatment:

February: $553.25
March: $418.04
April: $14.75
May: $150.38
June: $92.24
July: $283.16
August: $387.70

Total: $1,899.52

That amount comes out to 40 handles, but it’s probably about 2x since this doesn’t include what I bought with cash or drank with others paying.

Im shocked. But most importantly I’m grateful to be sober today. Keep working it gang!


My husband is addicted to alcohol.. For those who are sober/recovering, what worked for you?! What can I do to help him?!


What do you do to stop depression or negative thoughts?


Wanted to post to get this group moving 😊. Currently a little over a year sober/ alcohol free. Welcome to all of my fellow folks in any type of recovery!


Starting on my journey to sobriety today from sex addiction. I’ve been clean from alcohol for several years but my therapist has pushed me to start attending AA meetings in addition to SAA meetings. I know I can’t overcome this alone.


Feeling so frustrated and scared. I am trying my hardest to be loving to my brother who is addicted to many things. My family has been encouraging him for years to get real help. He’s finally semi-agreed to go to a detox facility and then rehab. However, those are far away from where we all live now. My 70+ dad wants to fly with my brother there to make sure he goes. I understand, but also...there’s a freaking pandemic going on with a virus targeting older people. Cont’d...


I start every morning reading these affirmations. I hope everyone finds grace and love today!

Anyone have experience with high range drink driving offences? How has it impacted your career?


Help! I stopped drinking but now I smoke the vape pens & I’m hopelessly addicted to nicotine, worried about my lungs. How do I quit this hellish fix? Feel I may start smoking cigs to get off the vape?


been in downward spiral since COVID, struggling with being alone, loved the travel, teams. got depressed and angry. Dreaded work. In the process got to drinking 4 up to 15 drinks most days. Gained weight. Didn’t care about living. Have tried to stop over and over. Last week I woke up with a bloody nose and for the first time cared. I don’t know what changed. I am 7 days sober and I am starting to feel like the me I remember! I am proud! I am thankful! I just needed to share!


My dad has a problem with alcohol. When he stops drinking for a day he clearly exhibits all the signs for alcohol withdraw. Shaky hands, sweating insomnia. I’m so tired of seeing him fall. My mom has passed away (they were long divorced) so I really don’t have anyone to turn to. How can I be supportive without being an enabler? He has lost the last three jobs and is currently jobless and will must likely need my financial help soon.


This time last year I knew I needed to stop drinking, but I couldn’t. This year, though, I’m putting my health first. Starting day 2 of sobriety and hope to keep it up. Thanks to this group for all the support and encouragement shown to those of us struggling with such powerful addictions.


Quit the booze back in September. It mostly hasn't been that hard but I can't get a grip on my emotions this week. Feeling overwhelming sadness for no real reason. (Cont)

Took today off to work on my oldest daughter’s truck and watch Stranger Things 4:8 & 4:9 with my youngest . So grateful for AA. I have the relationships I only dreamed of when I was an active drunk.
