    Yeah I can't say the dentist is my favourite place but I'm sure you'll be alright :); Yes progress is progress re: cats haha. The Addicted Australia documentary is such a big eye opener and really challenges the way that we think about addiction. It's incredible to see the real life struggles each individual faces and also the progress that they make. It's a 4 episode series that tracks their journey, I believe it's free to view online until November. Would love to know your thoughts once you've had a chance to watch it @Girl91 :);

    Sounds good @Queenslander :); Just wondering if there are particular topics or things that you'd like us to cover in future on our forum? Always open for ideas and suggestions. Same question for you @Girl91.

    Me either lol, but I’ve been through the worst of it so this end shouldn’t be to bad.
    Sounds good, I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes once I’ve watched it. So this same chat is every Tuesday night?

    Ok great @Girl91 :); Yes we run Chatty Tuesday weekly, same time 8pm - 10pm with the exception of public holidays. There's generally a rotation of who runs it from our team but it's good as you'll hear from a few different people. Feel free to join us anytime and give us an update on how things are going for you :);

    Sure thing @Girl91 :); Our main focus is on recovery, strategies for change, tips we can share with others but it could also be a topic of interest or info you would like to find out more about. We also like to hear about how you are going in general.

    Thanks for joining tonight @Girl91 and @Queenslander it's been great chatting to you both. The live facilitated discussion ends now but you are welcome to continue using this thread or create a new post on the forum in the meantime. I look forward to seeing more of your posts soon. Enjoy your evening :);
