What's a newbie? If you don't know, then you are one. It's a new person. Welcome! And relax, we love newbies. Even if you're not a newbie, you may find the following information helpful.

If you're new, and would like to introduce yourself or get to know other new people, you may want to start in the Newbies Nest:

How do I search for all the posts that someone has written or look up information about one topic? There is a search button on the top right of the screen. You can look up specific members and see all of their posts, or you can search by subject. Screen Shot 2016-03-15 at 12.35.54 PM.png 

Can I change my username? I was drunk when I signed up and now I hate it. Yes! You will need to fill out a request in http://enmancab.invisionzone.com/forum/97-user-name-changes/ thread. Don't sign up for another username! One username per person is all that's allowed.

How do I change or remove the little flag next to my name? If you click on your name, and go to settings, you will see a tab that says "Country" on it. You can change it to "Don't want to inform my country" or pick a different flag. Sadly, there is no Jolly Roger flag. Sorry to disappoint you! 

Are all of these medications prescription only? Yes. There is a section dedicated to supplements or holistic approaches that can be purchased without a prescription. These are things that are backed by scientific evidence to improve or enhance the health and well being of people who are actively drinking or recovering from actively drinking. But other than that, all of the medications need to be prescribed by a doctor or purchased from an online pharmaceutical company.

How do I find a doctor? There is a Directory of Doctors located here: http://enmancab.invisionzone.com/forum/41-directory-of-doctors/. Sadly, the list is short, but one of the missions of the forum is to increase this list dramatically. Keep in mind that these doctors do not necessarily prescribe ALL of the medications listed on this site. They are, however, much more likely to prescribe medications for addiction in general, and possibly even medications that are currently being used off-label to treat addiction.

There is another option, as well. There is a thread with relevant and scientifically sound research that you can print out or email to your doctor in an effort to get a prescription from your own physician. This is much more likely to happen if the physician is an addiction specialist, but your General Practitioner may also be willing to prescribe. http://enmancab.invisionzone.com/forum/94-information-for-doctors/

What if I can't find a doctor and I want to order the medications online? This is not the preferred way to get your medications, but unfortunately many of us have had to resort to ordering online. You are not alone. The online pharmacies listed on the following thread are reliable and have been used by many of us. http://enmancab.invisionzone.com/forum/95-online-pharmacies/

INTERNET LINGO:

What's a troll? Someone who intentionally disrupts the forum, makes other people feel badly, or generally causes trouble. It's mean and we don't put up with it here. 

What does flooding mean? Flooding is when someone intentionally floods a thread or the forum with posts so as to disrupt the forum or a person's input on the forum. It's a no-no.
