    The support group seemed great Lucas... take away the addiction and it just felt like people wanting to support each other with life.... I guess this is what this forum is about. But are you still in contact with any of that group?

    Its amazing how much of a positive impact a conversation can have! Even though it can be difficult, its a way of giving yourself a chance to make change! Well done!

    @Clouds21 for me it was important to be apart of an inclusive group where the vice was not really at the front of the conversation. Yeah I am still in contact with Sarah, Jess, Craig (the peerworker) Dawn (loosley, but I found that there is a real strange link there, someone close to her I used to work with in another state!) and Ruben occasionally when he returns his messages or when he comes to group. Don't really keep in contact with many others. So I did make some great friends and I could not imagine sharing this life experience with anyone else.

    It's nice to hear that you are still in contact and also see the connection of the group. We have friendship groups and family I guess in most of our lives but it can be difficult to talk to those people about our struggles... helps to find people that understand exactly what you are going through.
