It’s okay to respectfully tell people what you struggle with (e.g.
“I struggle with binge-eating”), but please avoid sharing specifics about your weight, calorie counts or details of any behaviours (such as what or how much you've been eating or drinking).
All chats are moderated by a mixture of paid staff and volunteer mods.
It’s important to remember that chat can't offer crisis support or professional medical advice and we have a few limitations around particular issues that we’d ask you to keep in mind: Sex – Chat’s not a place to hook up or brag about your sexual encounters.
Asking about bedroom antics, STIs or contraception is all okay.
The moderator will suggest that you use more appropriate services such as Samaritans or Papyrus You can sign up for a chat account or log in as a guest.
If you have an account on the discussion boards too then you might want to use the same name to help the community get to know you.
Drugs – You’ll be warned off any chat about manufacturing, dealing or getting hold of drugs, but we welcome conversation about the effects and impact of taking substances.
