Good morning,
I am actually not new to GYE, but I haven't been on the site in @ a year and a half... and not consistently here for longer than that.  But, b"H, today I'm returning... guess that makes me a ba'al tshuva .

Unfortunately, I'm still using my "drug" to escape negative emotions.  So I that's why I'm back here... not sure why I even left, but that's beside the point.

Anyway, just thought I'd post greetings.  Hope everyone has a great day.
