We could use your help though...

I’m coming here from reddit. The reddit mods and rules are getting insane over there. Just looking to find a place to talk kratom, give tips, etc etc. Quick kratom story! I started taking kratom in May 2018 because I was an alcoholic and it was effecting my liver. Here I am a year and some change later sober from alcohol :lol:

Welcome to our awesome community! I too struggled with being an alcoholic, so I can appreciate how kratom helps overcome drinking and helps continue sobriety.

Again, glad to have you!

Welcome to the forum

Less snark here than reddit too, less not non existent. ;)

One thing I disliked about r/kratom is when "that person" would post and down play anxiety issues as something where you need to get off the "crutches" of treating, whether it was with Kratom, nootropics, other botanicals or prescription meds and instead meditate, practice mindfulness, try controlling it by not being weak.
Anxiety is a dangerous mental disorder that sometimes is more than us mere humans are cable of handling. Many alcoholics and smokers are actually trying to self medicate.

We are a group of functional dysfunctional (again Laurie did I steal this from you?) We are non judgmental and will take on the issues of addiction vs dependence again non judgmental.

Congratulations on your sobriety hope you stay and can pass on any tips to members needing advice.

I am taking kratom to manage spinal arthritis and just passed my 2 year kratom anniversary

Take care.

Not sure I deserve the credit for “functional dysfunction”, but the shoe fits! LMAO

we put the FUN in dysfunction! hehehe

glad to have you here malanob! you will like it here. ive seen a few posts on redditt. just didn't feel as 'homey' as this place. more frat boy humor. which is SO not me. im a big wise arse but a chef by trade and we are mostly nucking futs..anyway..

yes very open discussion and honest tell it like it is forum. with compassion. I drank and smoked well for about a decade. still didn't truly help. I want to self medicate on something that will help my health and my body. AND be able to work on it. I think I would pick kratom over coffee, and that's saying a lot!

im glad you found a substance that has helped you so much. congratulations on overcoming your liquid demon. I gave up all nicotine and 'smoking products' its hard when its a substance that's everywhere. I don't drink often, really rarely. cause I choose kratom over alcohol. ( together for me NO Bueno! ) my husband got off suboxone from about 10 yrs thanks to kratom. im intolerant to traditional pain meds and had a no nsaid restriction. natural alternatives was the best way to go!

please feel free to ask specific questions. if needed. we can answer from our personal opinion what vendors cant. the forum only asks that you don't advertise for vendors unless they are forum approved. but in specific rooms its fine. there are many that are in the process of getting approved from what I understand.

theres a great discount most approved vendors give us too. ranging from 10 % and sometimes specials up to 25 %! anyways.. babbling.. happy to have you!

www.ilovekratom.com/kratom-vendors

That has the current list. Afaik a couple of other vendors have visited here and contacted Laurie and are in the process of getting approved.

I think the vendor themself would have to be directly involved. IIRC to be an approved vendor you have to do testing of your wares.

Kratom Vendors

If you are a Kratom vendor and interested in becoming ILK Forum authorized, which will allow you to have your company listed below.

Log into the forum, go to your profile and Private Message Moderator mwcrowder or Laurie. We are working on automating the process and improving our response times. Thank you very much for your understanding.

The process has been stuck due to illness (not me) and approvals are waiting to be posted and I’m no longer sending out applications - unfortunately.

If your vendor of choice is not listed, please just discuss them at your leisure in the FIND A VENDOR / RATE A VENDOR area until I can find out how to proceed forward.

You’re welcome to post discount codes for our members on behalf of the vendor, but they should refrain from posting directly and no sending floods of reddit fans over to post their rave reviews, please.

If there’s something you are unclear on with that, just ask. I check the private messages every few days (mwcrowder is not responding to inquiries, unfortunately) and I’m happy to answer questions to help you feel comfortable posting here, Malanob.

Oh ya that’s fine! I was just curious because I posted on someone’s thread yesterday and they were talking about how someone they wanted to try didn’t take credit cards or anything so I recommended the person I go to because he took cards. I didn’t know if maybe that was against the rules or not but I get what you’re saying thanks.

Just another issue on the subject. We may have a “mole” on this site who seeks mention of credit card processing services. Many times we mention this and vendor name, within hours they lost that service. For that reason, we no longer mention who accepts credit cards. For the benefit of everyone. Sadly.
