First of all, I want to say "Thank You" to everyone who is welcoming me back and offering support and encouragement. You've made a good point about me trying to do this alone. I suppose that is an aspect of my personality that has served me well at times and been detrimental at others. I really like to believe that I'm strong enough to handle anything life throws at me, on my own, if need be. But I get it, I'm not on my own & I don't have to do this alone. I'm grateful for that, I truly am. I will keep coming back, I will check in when I need help getting through a tough craving, & I will do my best to give each of you my support in turn. I'm reading & re-reading, I'm watching documentaries, listening to podcasts and trying to learn as much as I can."Knowledge is Power" is not a cliche, it's a fact!
