Welcome, you'll love it here - much better than a bar or a bottom of a bottle.

welcome

I always remind myself that the worst day in recovery is 10 times better than the best days while I was active alcoholic/druggie. and this too shall pass,

good days pass, bad days pass, most important I AM CLEAN

be safe

gratefull in recovery

Pleased to meet you Yoyo. I came here over 6 yrs. ago & never left. It's been like magic for me. I found the courage to change my life & have met some amazing people. We're happy to have you with us.
