Take the poll on the right. I put alcohol, but take it as if it's asking you about some substance (cocaine, marijuana, tobacco, gambling etc.) that might be YOUR bag of troubles. What I'm trying to do here is to see if there would be any interest in putting together a totally anonymous blog that is not accessible to anyone except members and unsearchable by any search engine, ie., totally ANONYMOUS to whatever degree you want to be.
This wouldn't be a forum-type thing with a bunch of strangers joining at random and chiming in to discussions, but a full-on blog with you being able to post whatever you wish (within reason).
Its goal would be to help YOU tackle your addiction and either stop completely or modify, and would be a source of support by others either going through what you are, or have been there, done that, and can offer advice.
You would preferably be on the intelligent side, know how to spell to a certain degree unless English is not your first language, and above all, be upbeat with a good sense of humor. Posting would not necessarily be limited to talking about addictions -- no subject would be off limits, as we'd all be a community -- but the overall goal would be to help you an support you through your journey in either stopping or staying stopped.
Anyone who is already in a program, especially AA, would probably not be welcome. We don't want any 12-step-type advice or how God will solve all our problems for us.
If you want to pass Go and apply directly, email me at tonbo at montrealfood.com and we can talk. Even if you don't want to do anything like joining a blog, take the poll! I'd be fascinated to see what the results are.
