    peace And Blessings Everyone,
    I Am New To This Forum.

    I Was Reommended To Join This Forum By My Therapist.

    What Brings Me To This Point Is A Lack Of Understanding Of Changes In My Life And Not Having A Support Group Of People To Talk, Share And Care With.

    All Of My Old Aquaintances Are No Longer In My Life Because I Have Choosen To Change My Lifestyle Of Using And Abusing Drugs And Alochol.

    I've Had To Move To A New State To Accomplish This.
    I've Yet To Make New Friends In The 8 Months I've Been Here And Clean.

    I'm Not Accustomed To Being Clean And Sober. My Self-esteem And Self-worth Is In The Toilet.

    I Can Only Fashion It To How A Person Who Has Been Released From Prision After 30 Years Must Feel.

    I've Been So Depressed Lately That My Therapist Is Concerned About Me.

    She Knows Of Someone Who Is Being Helped Tremendously By This Forum.

    I Pray The Same Happens For Me Here.

    I Have No Desire To Use Drugs, But I Know It Will Only Be A Matter Of Time If I Dont Take Some Steps Outside Of My Isolation.

    I DONT KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THIS FORUM, BUT I KNOW I HAVE TAKEN RISK THAT HAD THE POTENTIAL TO BE DEADLY, SO I'LL JUST HOLD ON AND HOPE FOR THE BEST.

    THANKS FOR LISTENING.

    Moving to an entirely new place and removing yourself from a system of user/abuser friends tells me you are incredibly dedicated to turning your life around.
    You're doing good things.

    Thank You Everyone

    To Everyone Who Took The Time To Respond To My Post,
    I Am Not Smart Enough To Find The Word That Would Express My Gradititude.

    I Have Been Broken, Frightened And Alone for a long time.
    I have not experenced this much warmth in a very long tim.
    and it feel DAMN GOOD!!!!!!!!

    I Have Recieved A Lot Of Well Wishes And Support. I Even Have Buddies On My List.

    I Am Glad I Was Refered Here.

    This Forum Reinforces My Belief That Humans Are Basicly Good.

    I Pray The Best For Everyone And I Look Forward To Growing, Caring, And Sharing With The Fine Peolpe In This Forum.

    Be Blessed Everyone.

    Welcome, Comrade.

    Though i must ask, why all the capitalization? I'm a bit of a logophile, and it's the first thing i notice.

    Welcome to SF :smile:

    I'm sure you'll make some true friends on here, and get the support you deserve. Maybe it'll give you the confidence back you need to go out there and show your neighbourhood what they're missing out on :tongue:

    Take care of yourself,
    Lauren
