Hey Guys,

Just want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.
I hope you have a great time with your family or whomever you choose to celebrated it with.

Also want to let you know that I have decided to take a break from M/S for awhile. To reevaluate M/S's role in my recovery if any. I have not found it too helpful as of late.

Last week I was talking to someone in the chatroom and he shared with me that he very rarely shares anything of a personal nature on the forum. Because of the nature of some of the replies that he has received.
Until yesterday I did not understand what he meant but now I do. And to say the least I found it disheartening and discouageing.
I didn't come here to play bullshit games with people who are supposely in recovery. Who go out of their way to play stupid head games with people who are trying to heal.

To those who are my friends here I wish you the best.

I can't really add to anything SL has said.

The issues you have presented are all relevant to All the issues of my recovery.
