      Someone else posted this here a long time ago……

      When you look through the stories here you will see a lot of success.
      It’s NO coincidence that those who are successful CONTINUE to use the support they have here,
      It’s NO coincidence that those who are successful listen to, and act on, the advice that is given
      It’s NO coincidence that those who are successful are honest with their husbands/wives/partners
      It’s NO coincidence that those who are successful often use, and continue to use other forms of support, attend GA meetings etc
      Its NO coincidence that those who are successful are prepared to take tough steps to help themselves

      Unfortunately it’s also NO coincidence that people who stop using the forum often return in deeper trouble than they were to start with
      That those who struggle aren’t prepared to be honest with husbands/wives/partners
      That they don’t act on advice
      That they give reasons/excuses why they can’t do something
      That even though what they are doing isn’t working they aren’t prepared to try GA or other forms of support
      That they aren’t prepared to take some of the tougher steps required to deal with a tough addiction.

      I don’t believe in coincidences, nor should you.
      If you are struggling then look at what is working for someone else – it’s working for a reason and it isn’t a coincidence.
      If you are doing well and think you don’t need support anymore? Look at the people who have previously thought that and return here – that isn’t a coincidence either.
