If you would have told me my life would be like it is now in 2002, when I first joined the Official G forum, I wouldn't have believed it.

I had a piece of shit PC I'd bought from a second hand place, and a 13 inch screen somebody had given me. It was slow as molasses, but I was able to practice emails and googling and all these new ways of doing things. I was deep in debt, had an abusive boyfriend, a shitty job and was struggling through my first years of recovery. The only thing I had on my side was my program, supportive friends that I'd met in the program, and that I was clean and working on rebuilding my life.

By 2007 I had pulled it together enough to be abusive boyfriend free, was enjoying working for myself, travelling a bit and finally renting a safe apartment with air conditioning, and without cockroaches. cool

By 2009 I bought my first iMac.

By 2017 I was retired, in good health, had a lovely person in my life, live in high end condo's and drive a Porsche.

I'd say recovery is good if you can get through that hard work in the first 5 years, or maybe it's that I joined that magical Genesis forum, one of my first 'googles' from home!

(Ironically I have made the most money from Google and Apple stocks!)

cool

Looks like it’s all over.

Shame.

I went out, got into a fight, I shall probably have a black eye in the morning.

The other guy was called Harry, I hit him first.

They’re bloody lethal, these kids with nerf guns... laugh

Me too. I just turned up, there were a few paper cups, crisps and peanuts everywhere, and loads of empty bottles and cans.

Lily, your story is an inspiration, I'm glad it all worked out well in the end. smiley

Thanks. I started thinking about when I first met all of you guys. How things have changed since then.

The Genesis forum was an important factor in my life. I learned how to communicate online, meet people from the internet in person, and the nights in Ralf s chat (in silence and darkness 😂wink gave me a lot of ideas.

It was all instigated by yours truly and Rosie on FB, Steve! It was great everyone made the effort to come back on last night; it was just like coming back home! Hopefully it'll continue! smiley
