    Hello,
    I'm new I'm here and I have been searching around looking for a Portland, OR PIF site I had heard of but can't find it and came across this. I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post this or not allowed. I have vaped for the last few years, but just last week my box was stolen, and I am in residential drug and alcohol treatment and do not have a way to replace it. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with any old setup they are not using. I'm sorry to ask I just can't stand smoking house tobacco and am going through a rough time trying to better myself. Thanks for reading and any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you so much for the kind offer I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. I was using a X-Cube Mini with a Vape Geek Griffin RTA. I messaged you as well.

    Hey buddy I'm a friend of bill w. How are ya? What step you on? I'm 101 days clean and sober from f*ntanyl, c*ca*ne, m*th, and alcohol. I'm a duel diagnosed mental health/ addiction. I have given it over to my higher power and use vape/ building as my hobby. Quite simply put vaping had saved my life. I just completed a "90 n 90". Actually not like a 300 something in 90. I am disabled going to college for graphic design. God has supplied all I need. Not gonna preach, I just want people to know that there is a solution.

    I used to hold a sign off the exits, for almost 8 years. Something in me changed. I want better for myself. I deserve better, as do you. Our disease tricks us into believing were not worth shit.

    I've made it so far this last year I'm incredibly proud of who I'm becoming..

    The hardest part was learning to love myself again.


    P.m. me if ur in Ohio ever we could go to a meeting. Any one in Ohio want to plan a meeting???

    I am a friend of Jimmy K. I live in Ohio too! I used to go to both fellowships until I figured I belonged with the addicts more than the alcoholics. 2/10/14 is my clean date.

    Also a friend here. Coming up on 2 soon. 1/11/17. Hang in there. I know how hard it is in the beginning. Go to meetings, get a sponsor, and work the steps, and God will provide you with absolutely everything you need and more.

    I'm DIYing juice and just getting started but keep in touch, once I get a few more good recipes down I'd be happy to help out a fellow AA.

    Hello just celebrated 22 years sober.
    I just keeps getting better. I did not believe it either. It works one day at a time.
    The only reason a person get drunk is because they want to. I have to decide every day to stay the course or get drunk.
    I would not relapse or have a slip. That is BS! no one can trick me I will just do it.
    I will not of course. No body drinks by accident.
    I go to my sponsor and my sponsers sponser. I have hundreds of friends that don't give damm about my feelings and tell my what I need to hear.not what I want to hear. That's part of how you 22 years.
    God bless keep fighting the good fight.

    Pretty much this ^^^^^^ Ya, when we drunks stop drinking, it's time to put on the "Big Boy or Big Girl Pants" No more getting our wittle fanny powdered! My first sponser handed me a big book and said read the first chapter, then call me. I did and then he said, okay now read it again and then call me. ummmm okay. This went on for 4 times. Funny how it read a little different by the 4th reading :) One day at a time everyone!

    Keep fightin' the good fight. Fellow friend of Bill here, met him and the good Dr. Bob when I was 20. I am 47 now and it still comes down to one day at a time. If you use 25% of the effort to work the program, that you used to get drunk or high, you can make it. Life doesn't get perfect but it sure as hell gets clearer and you get stronger.

    Amen Wb80, I worried the hair off my first sponsor ( at least that is what he attributes it to ) but people are there to help if you let them. A minute turns into an hour into a day and boom. Lean on others cause it helps you and reminds them of who they are. Anyone with more than a minute in the program has been there done that and can relate.
