I have some good news and some sad news. The good news is that my Doctors believe it is time for me to move on from the recovery stage and move forward with my life. Both my psychiatrist and therapist believe it is time to move on and focus on my life today and to learn the things I need to enjoy my life today. To make friends in real life to be part of life. The recovery process for me has been about 25 years mostly battling alcohol & drugs , 4 1/2 intense work on the alcohol, 3 years with my therapist on the CSA/CULT abuse.

I can't live in recovery anymore I have to live life. I do have some friends and family that I have neglected for too long and I need to be part of their lives.

I have been waiting years for this opportunity to be part of life again and they are going to do their best to help me make the most of it and learn to be part of it.

I was going to just walk away from here but I can't do that. I have grown to love the people and support I have found here, I have made new friends and I can't just walk away from them. I will stop in to check my messages but I will not be as active in the forums, I will post on things I think that are helpful for me and others.

Thank you for all your support, posts, and the healing circles. You have all helped me work through so many things I never knew were there until your posts brought them out. You have helped me remove the walls of my prison so that I may move out of my cell into the real world. Thank you all for this most valuable learning experience in my journey. I know the truth now and I am worthy of love esp. the love I have for myself. May you find this too. Self love changes everything and helps make recovery possible. at least it did for me.

I hope one day you will all make it to this point in your recovery.
I wish you all well on your journey
much love & light to you all

I'm a normal person dealing with abnormal experiences.
The greatest discoveries we will find within ourselves.

I can only wish you great things as you move into your future. It is so pleasing to see guys come to this point. You've been a fixture around here for a while now and while we don't like to see friends move away we surely do understand and are lined up here cheering you on.

Lots of love,
