Special thanks to my quit buddies: Mere, Victoria, Betty and Pam. The Januwarriors. We fought together. We spent a lot of time together in the early days. As much as I miss that, I think it is a testament as to how we can stand on our own feet. But we dont forget our roots. I love you guys.
The posse: Lesly, Tammy, Anna, Michelle, Terry, Gaylene and Linda
you guys immediately took me under your wings. It was your encouragement and interest that kept me in the forum, that linked me up with my quit buddies that brought me to educate myself about my addiction. Lesly for asking me into SAKE 2 weeks into my quit. Tammy for making me laugh. Anna for calling me darling girl and making me feel like the world revolved around me. Michelle for being the big sister I never had. Terry for being an enormous power and for always making sense. Gaylene for sharing your love of life with me. Linda for your unconditional support and for helping me realize I was not alone in my reality show addiction. You girls make me cry I love you so much.
For the ones who came after me. Everyone I have crossed paths with is special to me, please do not feel you are not if I dont mention you, there are just a few that I have gotten super close to this past year and I have to mention: Paula, oh do I just adore you. I still have our early conversations saved. Its astounding to see how far we have come. I will never forget the Looney Bin. Antonella, you are beautiful inside and out. You make everyone around you feel good and I am so glad you kept up your contract with yourself. Lorilu, you are my soul twin, the one that I was able to take under MY wing as was done for me early on in my quit. Simon, my naughty rogue. You make me laugh, blush, and gasp in one moment. You guys are standing on your own feet now and watching you from the beginning to your success has made me so proud. I love you guys so much!
And to the Women of Strength. For what we have become. What we have done together. For what we continue to do.
