Folks - we are adding a new rule to our forum guidelines. Please be aware of this:

“Discussions of drug and alcohol abuse that is not recovery oriented, is not allowed in these forums. Research shows that drug and alcohol abuse greatly reduce people’s ability to recover from mental illness and we are a recovery-oriented website.”


It is not a problem for me but does this mean people who want to own up to having a drug or alcohol problem will have to keep quiet unless they are ready to go down the recovery path? I am sure there is a space between boasting about/promoting alcohol/drug abuse and being ready to go down the recovery path. Are people not allowed to talk about their struggles?

Discussions about challenges / struggles are fine - we just don’t want people boasting about, promoting substance abuse.

Thank You - Amen to that

I am fully with that,but of us sz types that take different med dosages and what not,and different meds altogether?

i thought that this a site for helping those that wake up with the voices and go to sleep with the voices. .and everything in between.

Generally speaking, I think it is. Drug and alcohol glamorization does not fit into a recovery mindset.

Gotcha! Man if I contributed to this I’ll not do it anymore.

I think it falls under the category of: Don’t feed the voices.

Pouring booze on voices is rather like trying to extinguish a fire with petrol.
