Re: Perth Support Group Meeting

I would be interested in joining a Perth group. Good. It only takes two people. Contact bobthebuilder and take it from there. Perhaps send me a private message if I can help with hints about how to go about "running" a Perth group. I would like to hear from bobthebuilder whether he got an...

Re: Cross roaD

Yes, of course. Practising is the key to eventual recovery. The more often, the sooner that recovery will come. And doing it with the cubicle door open is a good idea.

WORKSHOP CANCELLED We have passed the date by which I needed to hear from interested persons. There has been only one Melbourne inquiry, and that came with the condition that the workshop fees be not too expensive.

There used to be an Adelaide group, but I believe it closed down for lack of support. So if you can find one perso...
