stay strong. you can do it.

go girl

I was going to wish you luck, but I see that this is over four years old now. I hope things went well. I think I know how you feel. Although my addictions are different than yours (see my story here in this group), I am also tempted to turn to my addictions when stressed.

good luck, stay strong! it is great that you're taking that step for yourself.

Damn. I hope you make it.
