  • After years of recovery attempts this is the only one that helped me through each stage of my recovery - it is so different for everyone and the forum allowed each individual to be honest about what was going on and to get support from a lot of wonderful people. ♣♣♣ http://t.cn/A6Pq6OB6

  • I have tried numerous times over the last 10 years to try & beat bulimia on my own with no luck. Coming across ur program online was the best thing I have done, knowing that all my thoughts & actions were the same as what you & many other people with bulimia had gone through or are going through made me realize I'm not crazy & I wasn't alone in this. The thought of bingeing or purging rarely enters my mind anymore if it does its for a split second & I'm able to push it right back out again. I'm eating normally again everything in moderation, no dieting enjoying food which I hadn't for a long time being kind to my body & loving myself. I have now been in recovery with no relapses for over 6 months I never thought I would be able to overcome this but I'm so happy & proud to say I'm finally free ■■■ http://scamcb.com/bulimiarec/pdf

  • The program designed by Jeevan summarise what you need to know for your exam by focusing on the key concepts. The resources are well written and take the complexity out of the topics covered. The shortcuts and tips are especially useful and I'm already reaping the benefits; I can answer exam questions far quicker than I previously did. I achieved a 'C' grade in the foundation-tier paper this summer (2015). However, I am not satisfied with just a 'C' grade so I've entered the higher-tier paper in November 2015, where I am aiming to get an 'A' grade overall. Before I came across Jeevan's program, I would have been really happy with just a 'C' grade at GCSE. I now want to aim for the best grade possible because I know I can do it. Thanks Jeevan for giving me the belief that I can do well in in this subject. I'm even considering A-Level Maths! That's quite phenomenal for someone who failed their GCSE maths before!■■■ https://bit.ly/33W8jmf
