Hello All,

New to the forum but not new to recovery by any stretch. 25 yrs+ clean, could have never imagined it way back when. Fumble my way through the tech world, but glad to find this forum.

Newcomers to recovery: we have all been there. Personally, your struggles are what inspire me. Don't have all the answers by any stretch, but know that my life would never be what it is had I not gotten clean.

Hang in there, this CAN be done.

Welcome! I'm glad you found us.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

Welcome to the family. I'm glad you found us and joined our international family.
I'd rather live in my car with my dogs than live in a castle without them.

It's so nice to have you join us, Try. 25 years is fabulous.
You are so much more than the worst thing you've ever done. Fr. Greg Boyle

A little voice deep inside me said, "Hello, I am here." It was a small voice, & sounded as if it were buried underneath the cushions of my couch. It was my soul...I had forgotten it.

Welcome Trymf
Every soul is like a raindrop that falls from the sky into one vast ocean of consciousness. Most raindrops hit the surface and make a small ripple that fades away ... but some ripples become waves.
