It’s been rather a long time since I did a themed week, but I hope you’ve enjoyed reading some of the material i’ve put out there, I’ve certainly learned from what I’ve read, and I would be really happy if some of you have also done the same. I knew very little about addiction before this week, and I still know very little. However, I know a little bit more than I did. If you want to know more about the subject matter, then I hope that my tweets have may have at least given you somewhere to begin!
Thanks again for the likes and retweets! I already have a few other topics in mind for future themed weeks 🙂
So until next week…stay safe and be happy!
