In The Rooms saved my life!

I found fellowship, friendship and sponsors here. It is real AA! I never knew what a good sponsor’s role should be until I got here. Living in the boondocks with no face-to-face meetings nearby, I can now stay connected to the program and to the people like me. The live video meetings are basically every other hour.

When I got out of the institution and rehab after thirty-eight days, I found In The Rooms in a couple of days – one of the early miracles. Unemployed and unable to drive, I was in just about every meeting for the first couple of months. To say my sanity was restored here in all those meetings would be an understatement. Those meetings gave me my sanity, hope, reality, faith and a new way of life.

With only a few exceptions, I’ve gotten closer to the members here than at my face-to-face meetings. I’ve also had the pleasure of meeting some of my In The Rooms friends in person. We know each other as though we lived on the same block. We are family, sharing in one another’s joys, accomplishments, struggles, hope, faith, sorrow, sadness, and loses. I am truly blessed to be a part of this wonderfully loving family!

Peace and blessings to past, present and future members.

  1. I’m Laura. I’m self quarantined because I have a compromised immune system. My job went to Tele-health so I don’t have a job until further notice. My meetings are closed down not that I should attend anyway with my health the way it is. So I have been seeking other means to enhance my recovery. I am very grateful that I have found in the rooms.
    I sort of stick to myself a lot anyway. I’m ill a lot so I stay in. This is a great find. Thank you God for this great resource.

  3. Hi Laura, My name is Suzi and I’m an alcoholic/addict. I, too, am self-isolating but have lived most of my life in isolation, even though I’ve worked as a teacher for 41 years and have been married for nearly 30 years, sober for one year; food addiction creeping back in during this stressful time in history. My meetings are canceled until further notice. I still need support and offer my support to you as well.

  5. I am compelled to take this moment to express my gratitude for those of you who have worked tirelessly and placed yourselves in service to create a place online where I can come to fellowship with people who ARE like me. I once thought I was the only person on this planet who was like me. Through this forum and face to face meetings I have discovered I am NOT ALONE. There are others like me. Lots of us! OMG!

    Thank you for showing me a way to live without the struggle of my addiction. I will be forever grateful and of service.

    Today I have 21 days clean.
