Welcome! If you need a shoulder, a friend or a virtual coffee at some point, drop by and say hello! I've been on sp for just three months and am thrilled with the support and results. Thought I might pass it on... :). 1654 days ago
Thanks for you comment and the info. You're right, I'm lucky I don't live somewhere more expensive! I hope you can quit smoking! I actually broke down and got another pack after going two days without them, and I'm not proud of myself. I'm going to give it another go soon because I know if I keep trying, eventually I will make it without them. I'll be glad to have you as a friend on here, maybe we can help support each other some how. Also, thanks for the info on freegans, I had never heard of it before so I am definately going to check that out.
I read your comment about stopping smoking and that you're on your 2nd day cold turkey! Well Kudos to you! You're only 23 and quitting will make such a difference in your life. I wish I could quit ... in fact I wish I never started. But I have been smoking for decades ... and I have tried at least 10 times to quit and the closest I came was with acupuncture ... it made the cigs taste TERRIBLE. But alas the Oriental doctor took the pin out of my ear too soon! If I had left it in another week I think I would have succeeded. Please try to stick to quitting ... ALL of my health problems stem from smoking and I know someday it will kill me if I don't stop. So if you ever need my support please reach out to me ... I promise I'll support you as much as I can.
On another point. I know it must be tough trying to live on $50 a week ... but you're lucky you don't live in NYC where everything is sky-high to buy. I want to give you a suggestion ... join the freegans in your area. Not only will you make new friends ... but you'll get free food too!

I am going to request that you be my friend. I hope you will let me be.
Hi! I have a very good friend that lives in Norway, he's taught me alot about the country and I just fell in love with it! It has some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world, is one of the most successful countries economy wise, and has very low crime rates. I think moving there would be an awesome adventure, but it will be very costly so all in good time I suppose. Also.. I love cold weather! hah
Thanks for the comment and glad to be here! So far I'm really loving this website.. but haven't checked out much of the forums yet.. it's on my to-do list! And yes, learning norwegian is fun but it's actually very hard.. it seems to be one of the hardest languages to learn. 1663 days ago
