      Is the correct answer. At least for a few months.

      That sounds like a pretty decent idea to be fair.

      Id tell my family.
      Im not sure if id tell my friends or not.
      I can't tell my mum, she's rubbish at keeping secrets. & I can't tell dad, coz he tells mum everything.

      I wouldn't want them to get harassed by people wanting a handout.

      Why not your mom?

      I know what you mean about people wanting handouts. Thats why im not sure if id tell people other than family. Actually I dont even know if id tell all my family. Just close family.

        IMO telling any friends is a mistake no matter how much you think you can trust them, the news will get round and that is the last thing you'd want.

        Not a chance they'd ever find out.

          She would demand at least half of it.

          I wouldn't care if it got out I wouldn't be remaining near where I grew up, the 2 friends I would tell were there when I was at rock bottom just over a year ago and I wouldn't just abandon them because I'm not at the bottom anymore
