Did you know that 20% of Australians drink 74.2% of all alcohol consumed in Australia!
Hi, I'm Leanne and I live in Sydney!
I thought I'd start this thread to reach out and connect with fellow TSMer's living in Australia. To me, knowing that I'm sharing this experience with somebody that may be only living a km away is sort of comforting.
Sometimes I feel as though the distance between time zones (aka, our gorgeous North American contributors), is a challenge. It's hard to keep up with conversations and I find myself wishing I was living in the US just so I could connect more?!
Please feel free to introduce yourself, and tell us where you are from. Also keen to hear local anecdotes and experiences.
Take care guys! xx

Hi Leaaus, yes I created a kik group for anybody to join so there could be immediate dialogue and info sharing with people. We got about 6 members but and it was very active for a while but has petered out somewhat.
I'm Andrew, Im 54 and I live in Adelaide. I started TSM on April 7th 2017 and was at about 110 drinks per week. I'm now down at about 50 per week. Still too much and I have plateaued but nevertheless in a much better place.
Kate, 50 years old (young!) from Melbourne. I would love to meet occasionally with local fellow TSMers. I started TSM August 6th, 2017 and it's changed my life! My AUD started spiralling out of control around 10 years ago and in the search for a solution, I stumbled across Claudia Christian's TED Talk mid July. This lead me to the cthreefoundation site and ultimately this forum. I wouldn't be where I am today without the support and compassion everyone here at Options Save Lives.
