I am a heroin addict and I have been clean for a grand total of 16 days, woohoo for me. Yay. Great. Wonderful. I'm not clawing at my eyeballs anymore, but I am bored, depressed, and I feel alone. Not lonely, just alone. I say all that not for sympathy, but so that hopefully someone can see that what they feel isn't just their problem to deal with. I know that there are people out there who understand and who are willing to talk, but where are these people? My family doesn't understand, my friends don't understand, even my doctor doesn't understand. The only people who understand are other people who have been through the hell I have been through. But where are all those people? Anyone who is going through getting off of heroin like me, needs people to talk to who won't judge and who can relate, sympathize, empathize, or just listen. Short of AA or NA meetings most people have no one to just spill out to. This has frustrated me. I want to talk to other people like me, going through the same thing I am going through, but there is no one there short of therapy or AA/NA. So I would like to know, would any other addicts or recovering addicts be interested in anonymously joining a network of addicts or recovering addicts that would allow them to instantly be in touch with another addict or recovering addict to just talk, ask advice, get a word of inspiration, get info, just be able to reach out anytime of the day and connect with someone else traveling the same road? I'm not talking a forum, i am talking real time questions and responses connecting people directly. You have a question or just want to talk and you will be put in contact instantly with another addict on the network. I see a real need for this and I am interested in hearing feedback. This is something I would like to work on and create in order to help all of us through this and I would like to see the level of interest it has. This is a community that we are in, whether we realize it or not, and the community serves to support each individual. Please notify me if you think this is something you would be interested in being a part of.
