As recovering addicts, we need to be able to communicate with one another and this is not always cheap.
The tool is called Skype and is FREE. It can be downloaded from here. It can work with either a dial-up connection or broadband/DSL, but the latter is faster and more efficient. As a standalone, you can talk with any Skype user for free. All you need is a headset.
One of the options you can use and which I have done is purchase some SkypeOut credit, about 11 dollars worth and with this I can dial any number in the world for mere pennies a minute. A half hour call to Ireland cost me about 60 cents. The sound quality is excellent. There is also a conference feature available, where you can conference up to four other users on a call with yourself. You can place calls on hold while you make another call. It has endless possibilities. This site does not make money from this product as it is a not-for-profit site but I think it is a great tool so I felt I should share it with you.
