Thank you to my online support group!

I just posted this to my online support group.  They are a truly amazing group of people.

I know that I have been needing a lot of support lately and all of you including lulu, cp, mike, lexie, arleigh, trixie, cedric, Kary, lolo (and others I am sure I forgot - sorry) have no idea how much support I have gotten from this list.  I honestly do not know if I would have had the motivation and confidence to even attempt perm abs without you guys.  

I was so broken when I came here.  I was in such a dark place.  All of your stories of life without alcohol were like a tiny beam of light shining through at first.  In the beginning I didn't think that it would be possible for me. I just kept reading and listening and eventually I thought, "Why not?  Why can't I have that?"  You are there to pick me up when I fall, kick my butt when I am talking stupid and make me feel like a superstar when I am succeeding.   I have read a few of the posts from the list to my mom.  She just started cryng and said she was so grateful that I found this group and am getting so much support from it.  

Nobody forces or pays you all to be here. You do it to make a difference and I just want you to know that you have more of a difference than you can possible realize in the life of this one 43 year old wife, mother, sister, daughter, teacher.  The MMlist helped me realize I have a problem, but this list quite possibly could have saved my life!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
