I just saw this forum and about S*&^ on myself too kind my sobriety dat is 04-19-07
I remeber seeing the warf rats on tour and would mock and ridicule them out of spite. Once sober and able to regain my composer and clarity its funny how you see the world through different eyes. The song itself really gets to me Ill get back on my feet again the good lord willing! What a inspiration. To think I was the Captain of the Titantic and was going down with my ship and there aint a damn thing you can do about it.

Most excellent news on NYE shows today - hoping for another trip out from the desert to the city and another chance to say Hi to the Wharf Rats! Sobriety Rocks!
havent posted in a looooong while-life on lifes terms i guess-hope you are all well.....life is so great-sobriety is awesome...anyone goin to the further shows in december????
so glad you made it! keep up the good work bro. your post said you were at 9 months and that was just over a month ago. now you are in double figures with 10 months, strive on dude and get a year. i hope you have a single sobriety date, it worked and still does for me. personal message me anytime bro. i had a srv jam out today, ahhh! peace, shack
Well I have been in recovery for 9 months..I never thought I would ever be sober this long and actually enjoy it. I checked into a long term rehab a while back. I got sick of being a slave to booze and drugs;plus watching my kids die around me. I will be going to my first shows (dso) soon since being clean. I am a little nervous about it. I don't know how my fam is going to react or how I will handle it. I was a ghetto tour kid. If you know what I am talking about you can understand the big change for me. I quit doing tour about 4 or 5 years ago and just starting catching shows. I landed a career as a sound engineer/stage hand. Dream come true. I have worked with Donna, Phil and Bobby. I mostly mix at festies around the north east though. I haven't got back into work yet either. I am waiting for the spring so my head will me better. Anyways it is hard for me to relate to people sometimes at meetings and I was wondering if there are any heads in Northeastern PA that are sober and might want to talk, kick it or go to shows together. I need a sober support base in the lifestyle. I am in Scranton PA...If there are any Wharf Rats around NEPA or anyone with good advice hit me back....
90 DAYS IS HUGE! actually 1 day is . We are here for you. 12 steps work best with a sponsor and meetings, a homegroup where you connect. I hope these are suggestions you already do or at least are willing to try.I am happy for you.
peace,love and recovery
I finally strung together 90 days in a row. I'm stoked. Doing it 12 step, or rather one step at a time... Life has been going good. Still looking for work.
First sober show last May - my thanks to all the Whafrats that supported me, before, during and in the days after the show, especially Randy. Ratdog now looms - headed out for SLO with support of The Other One 2, maybe Jimmy C and a few others to meet up with. And perhaps a but "Further" if it is in the universal plan.
Looking forward to the Wharfrat table and group yet to meet (and maybe some new bumperstickers that will hold up in the Arizonz sun and heat!!
Love, peace & tickets as needed!
