Not particularly helpful


This app is supposed to connect you with other alcoholics.
A. Not enough traffic on the app. It’s hard to come across someone you have anything in common with
B. The app is glitchy. I finally found someone to talk to and both of our chats froze for half the day.
C. Honestly? Go on Kik and find an AA chatroom if you’re looking for companionship or sponsorship or whatever. There are plenty of chat rooms and all of them are filled with people 24/7. This app is disappointing.
D. If it makes you feel any better, the other alcoholic apps, such as Nomo, were also pretty much useless.


Sober now

This is a great app. And a wonderful supplement to AA / NA if YOU are serious about getting sober!!!

Could use some improvements for sure


It is a hodgepodge of recovery, so not just for alcoholics, addicts but also for over-eaters, sex-addicts, cutters...etc. I didn't expect that when I got the app. So if you have one ailment as apposed to another you will need to look for "your people". There are tons of rooms that can be created by anyone at anytime and there is no limit. The topics are not always on recovery of any sort either. There is no moderator, so if someone is acting out there is no way to really get it to stop.
Now for the good stuff... There is a meeting every night that is run well and is AA/NA based. There are people that really care about each other and about the new guy who wants to know how to stop drinking/using. There is solution shared with experience, strength, and hope that is grounded in the principles of the program and comes from a place of love and compassion.

Basically it has its perks and its quirks. It, by all means, should not substitute face to face meetings and could use some re-organization.
