Access to the meetings and chat room is by registered members only. The registration process is free and is used to ensure the safety of the site from hackers and spambots which disrupt the recovery process. Choose a name, enter the password that is emailed to you upon completion of your membership registration and login. In the unlikely event that the name is already chosen, you will be requested to try a different one. The meeting/chat room is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week, so you may find others there even when there are no scheduled meetings occurring.
