Back in my college days studying for Electronics Engineering I had a professor who had tremendous experience in the electronics repair business. He talked about a device that used to exist in tube televisions called a Tripler. It had the function of tripling the voltage needed for the tube to work. He told us that if you ever had the misforture of putting you hand on a tripler that it would be a mistake you would not soon forget and would be unlikely to repeat.
As addicts we can repeat our mistakes frequently even after much pain. One way that governments try to curb this is by producing anti drunk ads and drink driving prevention ads. These are hoped to give a visual aid to dissuade those who drink too much and/or drink and drive. We have put a selection of these in our Media Gallery section. Take a look at them. Some are really well done. If you have any links for other good ones, send them to us and we will put them up. Thanks for checking them out.

As recovering addicts, we need to be able to communicate with one another and this is not always cheap. While surfing the web, I stumbled across this fantastic tool that is easy to use and is either ultra-cheap or totally free to use, depending on what you want to do with it.
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.
