Maybe this will make you feel better now that you aren’t the final post on this thread – ha ha.
Personally,  I love to log on and see a “string of Velvets”,   so please …  don’t ever shut up!
(By the way, just what are you employed to do for Gambling Therapy if it is not to be our advisor in this forum?)
I’m very glad that it is a good thing to post on other’s threads because,  even though it isn’t easy sometimes,  I seem to be doing it more and more.   And I always, always appreciate it when someone posts on my thread.
I do try and be careful when I post on others so it does not appear that I am telling someone what they should do – which is hard for me!  And I try not to define someone else’s experience by comparing it to my own – which is also hard for me.   
But I have learned so much about this addiction – especially from this site, and I have received invaluable support here, so now I think it is important for my own recovery to offer my support to others.    
I usually post when something has moved me,  so while writing more objectively on someone else’s thread I have experienced any number of realizations for my own situation.  I think that is just one reason this site is so helpful and I am beginning to understand your passion for it Velvet.
As always V,  thank you for being there for us.   And thank you GT for allowing us to be there for each other.
