A huge 'thank you' to all those who make this a safe place


I know it's been said before but it bears repeating. I am so grateful for those who keep this place running smoothly and safely. I always feel safe here and I always feel welcome. I can never adequately express my thanks for those responsible for keeping this a safe place. So here goes:

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO FOR US HERE AT SOBERRECOVERY!

Least, I feel exactly the same way.

I believe that SR is a labor of love for all us who come here. Sometimes we have something to offer someone else, sometimes we need to reach out for someone's supportive words. But, we all give what we can here and it shows.

I totally agree with you!! I am ever grateful for SR!! I find that SR sits comfortable with me and my mind. I feel like I can relate and learn from many of the people here in ways that simply wouldn't be possible through any other resource/institution/program.

The diversity of SR is what I love so much. It doesn't feel like 'my way or the highway' and instead gives hope and inspiration.

Thank you Least for all of your support and inspiration and thank you SR in general for all of yours.

peace and Love xxxxx

I seriously believe without SR I would have gone back out a long time ago.

Thank you, SR.

I second that motion, least..... I can't express how grateful I am for this place either. It's exactly what I needed and continue to rely on every day.

Agreed, least... this is a great place to listen and to give, and it has an amazing synergy for recovery (SR)!

Thank YOU Least

for bringing this up! Yes, yes, yes a big thank you to all for making SR what it is. A haven for many of us.

What would I have done those first days of sobriety when I was so alone and frightened if SR hadn't been here? I thrived on the posts and the forums and you people got me through it. I have never felt alone since. Even when I am not posting, I know you are here waiting for my return. Yes, SR makes a difference!

Thank you, thank you, thank you SR and all the people who work so hard and dedicate so much time! (that last one should be a 10, too!)

Thanks again Least for starting this thread!
