I'm so glad and I thank you for making a forum like this.
You are saving people
I think this forum is great! Its a good place for people to go who want to talk and still remain anonymous if needed. They can express everything they are feeling with no judgment and there is so much support on here, its great!
I just want to thank you, the creators of this forum. I am not an addict in any way but I am just here to show support and motivation to the people who need it. I think that you have a accomplished a great achievement because you made a supporting and understanding community that really gets far in the discussions and resolves a lot of problems.
I want to thank you for creating this forum. Substance abuse has affected my life in many areas.
I have been in stages of my life where addiction of many things, not only substances, has been a huge issue and I am an overcomer. I hope to be an encouragement for those still struggling.
I also have a soon to be stepdaughter who has been affected by the pain of her mother being severely caught up in the web of addiction and had to go away to rehab for over a year. That's incredibly difficult on a young child. I am working on trying to not be a replacement to her mother, but to form a friendship with her mother in order to encourage her to be an overcomer as well and to try to be a team and parent her together.
@SarahWorksAtHome... We are happy to have you here.
Substance abuse touches so many people. And it's not just the substance abuser who suffers. Families, loved ones, and friends of the substance abuser also struggle mightily. It's great that you are willing to offer encouragement to others.
As far as your soon-to-be stepdaughter goes... What an amazing approach you are taking. I hope her mother is open to it, because I think it would be fantastic for everyone involved.
Thanks again for being here.
I want to thank the people who made this forum possible. Sharing experiences and learning from other people's experiences can really change one's perspective. More power to us all!
Thank you, @superbobby! We always appreciate kind words like yours!
Thank you so much for all the good you've done to this community by providing it with a platform where we all can share our experiences and doubts. In the time of need, a place like this is a truly invaluable thing to have.
Thank you for the feedback, @llfsa!
Great what you're doing here. I hope everyone that visits will get out of drug abuse successfully. Good luck all.
@notathrowaway... Thanks for the kind words! Much appreciated!
This is truly an amazing thing you are doing. The amount of people out there that are in need of guidance is rising, and we need more kind-hearted communities like this that are determined to help those people struggling.
@Retrobunny... Thank you so much for stopping by...and for the kind words. We love offering people a safe, non-judgmental place to come for support and help.
This community is greatly appreciated, especially considering my aunt recently died from alcohol addiction. The support is needed. I feel like I could have done more, I just don't know what considering she said she was not going to stop drinking. Sigh.
@Marie92... I am so sorry for your loss. Unfortunately, no matter how much we want a loved one to stop their destructive behaviors, they are the only ones who can make the decision to change. It's natural to feel like you could have done more, but please don't feel any guilt. If your aunt was set on continuing to drink, there wasn't much more you could do. Thanks for stopping by and sharing.
I really enjoy this community and the recovery board community in general. Not because we're anonymous, but it's other real people in other real situations. I don't feel ashamed of what I've done because I'm trying to overcome it, and with the help of people on this forum it made me realize I wasn't alone in my endeavors. That alone is worth all the gold in Fort Knox.
@Shimus... Right on for not feeling ashamed! People make mistakes, and admitting those mistakes and working to correct them is HUGE. It's great to have you as part of this community and thanks so much for the positive feedback.
Thanks. It goes a long way to know that we're not alone you know - most people feel they are so they fall right back into nasty habits that they could easily overcome with the right willpower, pillars of support, and medical advice.
It is a really good community. Even though the subject matter is about drugs and drug abuse. No matter what your issue is whether it has to do with the obvious or even other problematic areas of ones life. The forum really helps. Whether you are helping others or you are looking for help yourself. Venting and talking about it. Writing it out is so therapeutic on many levels. Socializing with people and reading about their different view points. The experiences of other people. It's good.
Thanks for the kind words, @Adrianna! So glad you're here to be a part of it!
