Anyone in the Chicago area that would like to meet up? I've had trouble finding support groups in the area.

Hey Ally,

 

I'm in Michigan, not too far away. Next month I'll be visiting Chicago for a weekend. Perhaps we can get together while I'm there. Something's better than nothing. Give me a shout, let me know your thoughts. And anyone else in the area. I'll post more later when I'm sure of exact dates. Toodlez for now.  :blink:  :D

Hi Everyone,

 

I'm in the Chicago area and would also be happy to meet up with both of you. I am around 8 months clean, and doing a lot better, but it's always helpful to talk with others.

I am 45 days now. going through hell and so many emotions. A lot of me does not want to leave my shell, but I feel that meeting up with others who understand it best would be good for me. I just need to take the leap. Im sure ill be happy I did it. Im in the Rockford area about an hour from Chicago.

Hi my brothers and sisters from another mother I would love to meet up with you all . I will be clean from the evil pill about one year now in late November 2012


I am living in Arlington Hts ill, its about 40 minutes from down town. I am a blues fan and would love to show you guys around town and visit some of my favorite clubs it is always a good time listening to some fantastic local musicians . We can make a week end out of it like a mini vacation. I would love to meet some new friends with the same interest as I have. I lost a lot of friends when I decided to get clean thy where all heavy partyers. I now look back and reflect the only thing I had in cumin with my old friends is getting Hi . Ben there don that no more for me.

Not sure how active this forum is but today is 3-18-15. I'm in Chicago. I skipped an interview this morning...again...because of my addiction. I need a change.

I would enjoy having someone with whom to speak that either Is Going Thru or Has experienced what I am going thru.

Please contact me.

I would love to meet up with people in the greater Chicago area with similar struggles. I've been going to AA meetings, and while I'm appreciative of the help, no one really understands what I'm going through.

@Nicole88- I noticed that you're post is recent. Have you quit using stimulants? I tried to go cold turkey on Saturday and by Monday I was a complete wreck. Would love to find a mentor who has gone through it already.
