    New member here. Struggling with substance abuse and self harming and all those feelings that follow.
    More of a last resort that brings me here. Guess everyone knows the feelings of lying to your loved ones which can lead to crazy steps in someones life. Im to afraid to meet some one face to face. To afraid to attent a AA meeting or as such.
    But yet i am hoping that talking to a stranger on the internet could be a diffence that im looking for. I am afraid of this site as well, i know to well of the bias and the judgement that happens. Not much of a story, or it could be guessed as its so cliche. I am a good person who needs to be listened to instead of listening but to afraid of telling my loved ones that, seems selfish but its steps i need to take.

    Acceptance is a chance that many arent given but i hope to acheive it here. With care and support
