Wow, I was surprised by the negative reviews. I have been participating on the site pretty much from the start. Yes there were growing pains. Yes, there were issues with people misusing the site in the earlier days, yes there are the same issues in the virtual world as there are in F2F meetings. All in all, I am very grateful for this site. It has given me a platform to use (once I learned to navigate the site) that has allowed me to remain sober and grow in my recovery. No one said it is the one all do all, it is a tool to use and aid in recovery.
