Step 1 - Action Step — Admit the problem; seek help; attend meetings
I am traveling long term and recently decided that I need help staying clean.

I don't have easy access to accountability partners. This is all new to me.

Are there online groups for accountability? I'd prefer something where I can check and speak, like on Skype or Google Hangouts. A live chat session might work too. Resources?


"There are online groups. You can find these for whatever addiction you have Yahoo has several groups for addiction recovery."

"I haven't tried this, but I'm considering it. If anyone else has any experience with this group, I'd appreciate the feedback."

my personal experience    
I have had some success with the arp support group. I think that having the accountability is so very critical in making the lasting changes that we want to make in our lives. I have a small group of people who I can call now when I get worried or concerned rather than turning to my addiction which is a major first step. Good luck and God bless you in your efforts"

"I will speak briefly of the principle of repentance. How grateful I am for the understanding we have of this great principle. It is not a harsh principle, as I thought when I was a boy. It is kind and merciful. The Hebrew root of the word means, simply, "to turn," or to return, to God. Jehovah pled with the children of Israel: "Return . . . and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful . . . and I will not keep anger for ever. Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the Lord thy God." When we acknowledge our sins, confess them and forsake them, and turn to God, He will forgive us."
