Vanilla Survey Results

It's been a few months since we announced our exciting move to the new boards software Vanilla.

Back in February, we asked you to complete a survey so we could hear what you thought about some potential features and changes that Vanilla can offer. We also sent this survey out to our boards volunteers.

You can read all about the results here

Post of The Month

Shaunie is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Novocaine

This sounds really difficuly and scary. Sorry youre going through such a hard time im glad youre getting some sort of help. Experimental therapies sounds good. I hope youre taking good care of yourself aswell and doing things you enjoy and doing small things that could make you feel better like nice relaxing bath.

Mindfullness and grounding technics can be really helpful. In times where i felt disassociated i would be vaguely suggested to stay midful and present in the here and now. Which can help your concentration aswell. Like even picking up something around you & noticing how that feels & what is around you helps to be less in a dream state of mind. Loking at everything in details & concetrating on your breathing. I know its quite hard to rememeber to do in times of high anxiety but it doesnt need to just be when you get to that point. Can be any time of the day just to help you feel better and get in rountine of doing it & remembering

Its also okay to not know what you want to do after school. Even people who seem to know what they want - end up not wanting it and alll can take some time to know and feel better and that is okay too, youre on your own lil journey. But there is always hope

Take care"

  • Highly experienced addict.. worried

    I take a substance, daily for several months. Expensive. Was old school back in day, quit years, started again on this, last summer, I know my stuff but in bit of panic. This purchase is cut with something that is worrying me. Heart pounding, feel dreadful, can just deal if distracting self but very scary. Scared to tell services of even girlfriend, she knows I've been doing but pretends not to know. 3g a day. Posting could just be because of panic.. advice may settle me.

    I take as im the one everyone turns to, limit hit last summer and started so I could keep being there for everyone. Not great for my relationship.

    Thanks in advance

    Hey there Jambo,

    It is great to see that you are being mindful about what you are doing, and amazing that you want to help yourself so that you can help others! Being worried is only natural, and there are always people to help you through it.

    Unfortunately, we aren't experts here so we can't really give you advice. However, there are some sites where they can give you some more expert advice.

    The NHS has a website that allows you to find professional services near you which are right for you, which you can view here.

    There is also a website called FRANK which gives friendly and confidential advice about substance use here.

    I hope this helps! We are definitely here to listen if you ever need
    I remain,
    Seven

          Hi there, Is there anyway you can try to stop it, do you know why you do it? and if you've not been caught by the police before it could pose a risk your future as you don't want to risk getting in trobule with the law.
