    @Spankypompay thank you for sharing that, they are really common feelings when it comes to addiction and recovery. Please know you're not alone, there are a lot of people here who understand those exact feelings. When you feel comfortable to share your story, we're here to support you.

    hey @Spankypompay I just want to check in and see how you are right now? If you need to speak to someone please call the National Alcohol and Other Drug Hotline on 1800 250 015 they offer telephone counselling and can also refer you onto local services. Please keep reaching out here as well.
