The purpose of this Chemical group is to offer  a place where people can communicate when not at a Celebrate Recovery Meeting. The importance of communication in this particular  group cannot be understated. 
With respect to chemical addiction or abuse, communication isn’t the only thing, it is everything. This is especially true in the health field, where life and death, sickness and health, can be contingent on communication or lack of it.

The Chemical Abuse group is a unique group, a very special group. This is probably the ONLY group where succumbing to temptation has the very real option of resulting in lethal harm to the user and others. In fact, this premise was the original genesis of developing this forum. The very real need for communication 24/7.


Perfection is not required, but progress is possible, when you allow Christ to change your thinking.

Depending on the forum's settings, users can be anonymous or have to register with the forum and then subsequently log in in order to post messages. On most forums, users do not have to log in to read existing messages.

In this Celebrate Recovery forum you have Free Will and Choice. You can be as transparent or as anonymous as you want to be. You fill out your own profile with whatever information you want. You define your Profile, Preferences, Subscriptions (to content) and Reminders. This forum should be thought of just like a CR meeting group, except you can be anonymous. Pick a forum/group and share whatever is on your heart and mind or don't share at all and just view. It's your choice to share in writing or just read.

This forum is a tool that can be used to facilitate and share honest communication with God and others. Like any course, subject, book or event, you get as little or as much as you put into it. 

Unlike share group meetings, “Fixing,” is allowed within the confines of constructive criticism. By fixing I am referring to helpful suggestions from both a secular and Biblical source. Be slow to write, slow to anger, and quick to listen [smile]

The finest relationships are between people who want to see each other succeed in faith and therefore “spur one another on toward love and good deeds” (Heb. 10:23-24, niv). In other words, our best friends are those who love us as we are but never cease to challenge us to be better for the Lord.


“Encourage one another and help one another.” (1 Thessalonians 5:11 TEV)

There is no reason why anyone with any hurt, habit, or hang up cannot be helped. The Person-God partnership simply needs to be more powerful than any hurt, habit or hangup.

Behind everything you do is a THOUGHT.

Every BEHAVIOR is motivated by a BELIEF.

Every ACTION is prompted by an ATTITUDE.

-----------------------------------------------------------

With respect to behavior, life is about, emotions, beliefs, thinking and control.

"A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."Proverbs 29:11 (Displaced Behaviors)

"Do not be conformed by this world but instead by the renewing of your mind." Romans 12:2 (Direct Behavior)

When you think and empower yourself and surrender control to God, when you Intelligently Delegate Control to God (2 Corinthians 12:9-10),

God returns that control to you with a, “Helper," the Holy Spirit, (John 14:16) a form of Reciprocal Innervation.

You regain control: "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

No longer are you subject to corrupted displaced thinking but instead are transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2).

This is where science and scripture intertwine, where Christ Driven Behavior brings, values, control, cause, character and purpose driven behavior, the fruits of the spirit Galatians 5:22-23 .

“If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17.

------------------------------------------------------------

Proverbs 29:11 "A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."

Romans 12:2: Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

2 Corinthians 12-9:“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

John 14:16: "He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—"

Philippians 2:13: "for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure."

Galatians 5:22-23 "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Ephesians 4:22-23 "...put away the old person you used to be. Have nothing to do with your old sinful life. It was sinful because of being fooled into following bad desires. Let your minds and hearts be made new."

Life is about finding Purpose. When you have a, "Global Purpose," in life, healthy direct assertive thinking and behavior follow.

Change your thinking, change your life!
