    Hi, My online name is miss b. i like taking pictures of nature so i guess you could call that a hobby. ive joined this site as I would like to stop using marijuana, i have used it on and off for a while to cope with my anxiety, im pretty much isolated and don't know where else to turn to for support/advice.

    Hi @SoberWish thank you for your post and I hope you are able to get something from these forums to help you through tough times. People find forums like these helpful and encouraging and many find that they feel that they are part of a community that 'gets' them and helps to normalise some of the stuff going on around them. You sound like you have had a really difficult time, especially with a cancer diagnosis.. do you find that the cooking and creating - whether art or food helps you get through the day ? Looking forward to hearing a bit more about you and well done for reaching out :).

    Hey @MasterSimon @Just existing @KLS How is the weekend treating you? Just checking in to see how things are going with your resolutions to reduce and recover and move forward with less use and eventually stopping - I can see that you have been getting a bit of support and also supporting others in our community which is so nice to see :) Happy Sunday and hope it's a blissful week for everyone!
