To our valued contributors, a big thank you for sharing your story and supporting each other. To our peer workers @PnorkelPW and @ScorpionPW, thank you for all the amazing support you constantly provide to this community. :D

    Thanks @Peace Dove and thank you to all the moderators who help keep us connected with all the new members and new contributors…………and the regulars like @Katiee , @apples123 , @Nugnug , @initae89 , @BonsaiBeginner and @Keita who it’s been an absolute pleasure to get to know.

    I feel really privileged that I get to share with everyone but even more so that people feel comfortable to continue to share with us on here. The forums have become an integral part of my recovery journey and give me the reminders I need to stay humble and vigilant in my recovery but also the rewards of sharing the successes with you all too.

    Recovery is full of ups and downs but if we can all remember the little wins along the way it can help get through the tough times as well
