- raises hand - I have had success in magic.
You're interested and new, so I would suggest a relitively hefty bit of research. Go check out the General Info section of the forums and read the stickied threads (they have the read thumb tacks next to them). Those forum posts will give you a good starting point.
Magic/witchcraft is not a religion. There are religions that use it (in fact, a lot of religions have their own version of spell casting - a ritualized attempt for magic to happen - ex. prayers), but witchcraft itself is not a religion. That being said, you have no need to worry about if it will "support you."
Welcome to SoM, and I hope you find what you are looking for.
