Thanks so much to all of you for your support. I have bean reading on SR a lot over the past week...and before and am amazed at what warm, welcoming and positive support people give each other. it really makes a huge difference just knowing there are others out there in the same boat, and fighting the same battles day to day.

I look forward to spending more time on here and hopefully sharing in mine and your recovery journeys.

Well nearly bedtime for me, have a sober and enjoyable evening everyone, and sleep tight
