Can barely even think of them..but getting so much better..good luck to everyone,its not easy but its worth it I've found xxx

Welcome to SR candy! I love your positive attitude. Great job on your 9 sober months!

I did some out of character things too. I find the longer I'm sober they are fading away to nothing. We can't forget where we've come from, but those things don't define us. We have broken free and we'll never go back to that horrible old life. I'm glad you found us - I think you'll enjoy the extra support you'll have by being here.
