Great Tool. This is an amazing app that I highly recommend to anyone struggling with sexual addictions or compulsions. If we can use our smart phones and social media to feed our addictions, why can’t we use them to fight our addictions? If you use this app and love it, send me a friend request at evilwizard. I’ll be glad to hear from you.

This has been so helpful in my recovery! I love that it tracks your progress, including days you check in. Even if sobriety days are not as many as check-in days, it’s important to recognize growth where you can. I also love being able to see my friends’ progress and how their recovery is going. Support is essential to recovery, and RTribe is a great way to get it!Sydney Meng (on Jul 14, 2016)
