Welcome! I'm glad you reached out for help, clarabow. I hope we'll hear more from you. This is a great place that helped me get sober after I drank for decades. You can do it, too.

Still getting used to this so apologies if I offend or do something daft. Just wanted to say thanks, you're support is really helping.

Someone mentioned I should join Class of May 2013, how do I do that?
