new to the forum


I use a tablet to view the internet. And my visibility is restricted compared to a desktop computer. But I'm doing my best.

Today I registered with this forum site. And I mainly did it for my self, although my cousin is in rehab over in California and he'll be back home in Enumclaw/bonney lake area In 30 days. He's texting me saying that I'm the only one he knows that can relate to addiction with him and he's looking forward to having me help him out with the **** he isn't aware of... As u can tell he needs my help soon. I'm going to have him sign up with this sober recovery forum . well I'm 26 years old and I've been addicted to heroin and pills and meth. My DOC is oxycontin/heroin. I been clean for almost a year with troubles in between and before that I relapsed like 5-9 times. Anyways my names josh and I might need your help with teaching my little cousin. Let me know if anyone has any comments or advice! Thank you.

Hi and welcome syms

Both you and your cousin will find great help support here

my advice is share your experience by all means, but let your cousin be responsible for his own recovery - let him find his own support and make his own changes to his life - and you be responsible for yours
