    I also wanted to sign off by saying that this will be my last day as Online Community Manager. It has been so fantastic to see our community continue to grow and the powerful and insightful conversations and support that has been shared. We are almost at 3000 members and it has been a privilege to be a part of it. Thank you to our amazing members for being so brave in sharing your story, I'm certain that so many people benefit from reading it even if they don't post. Thank you to our Peer Workers @ScorpionPW @PnorkelPW , Community Builders @Lhiver @Peace Dove and Moderators for providing wonderful support, sharing your insight and expertise and for creating a welcoming and safe space. One of the biggest highlights for me was also the Addicted Australia documentary. This really enabled us to have a behind the scenes look of what recovery from addiction looks like and creating more awareness in the community. Thanks again everyone :)
