I love this place


Why do I get such a warm and fuzzy feeling being on this site? I feel at home and safe.

That makes my day, Goose.
I felt that way right from the beginning too - that's why I never left.
We're happy to have you with us.

I feel at home here too. I even got a lovely cat from a fellow member here.

Iíve been stopping by and reading posts off and on for years. I posted once years ago under another account (Iíll have to surface that post someday) but I didnít stick around because something about this place felt threatening.

And it was, it was threatening to my addiction.

I don't drink because of the support I felt here. I so needed that boost.
