YOOOO

Hey, I forgot this part of the forum existed.

I've been clean for about 10 months now.. I've been going to NA the whole time, which is the only thing that has ever worked for me, and for a lot of people I know...

So yeah man, it's cool not having to constantly chase that next one...

Just wanted to say what's up and maybe give some hope that If a junkie like me can stay clean for this long, ya'll can too.

Much love

Much love and smiles back at you Brother.

It's been a long time since we've talked. REALLY glad you stopped by to let us know how it's going for you. That is most excellent news.

Man, I feel you dezzy. everytime I tried to get clean for a girl or someone else I usually couldn't make it through a few hours, much less a day. When I finally got truly tired of the way I was living, I decided to do it for myself, and became willing to do whatever it took to make it through a day clean... And there are a lot of different ways to do it. But going to meetings and taking their suggestions is what has worked for me. You can get clean and stay clean.. And it does suck sometimes, especially in the beginning... But it's simple, hard but simple. And for me, even though life still has it's ups and downs, things have gotten better overall.

Much love

Word up to recovery. I have 60 days Wednesday this week. If you knew me a few months ago, you would literally shit your pants over this. I mean you would be surprised that I'm alive, never mind 60 days clean. Nothing short of a radical shift in conciousness got me here thanks to the people in the rooms...

Btw NA is weak sauce in my area unortunately. But AA is pretty good, and CA rawks my sawks.

Great thread my friend! I've been clean for 2 months now! I never thought NA would be the answer I dismissed it for a long time... It really works! NA FTW

I LOL'd when my lawyer read the police report to me while I was behind bars on Thursday... all it said was

"he was asleep behind the wheel with a needle hanging out of his arm"..

I said to my lawyer... THATS BULLSHIT... I wasn't sleeping
