hey all. just an observation here. lately it seems that if i miss out on some meetings, things start to go a little south for me. as soon as i start back, good things come round-job interviews, jobs, and good news all around. sounds a bit superstitious maybe and it could be that my spiritual level gets a little drained without a meeting. it's kinda cosmic to me, but i was wonderin if anyone else has noticed anything similar.
nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile
that last bit about the dreams struck a chord with me too, having nothing to do with the Wharf Rats. I learned a few years ago that some subset of the population, like 10%, has a well-documented issue of getting horrific nightmares from opiates and opioids. I learned this during a spell of frequent sprained ankles; the nightmares were bad enough that I was literally afraid to sleep and preferred the pain. They thought I was really weird at Kaiser when I put my good foot down and said NO OPIATES. NO OPIOIDS on the last sprained ankle, because of course they usually have the opposite problem.
but i`ve been free of the ciggaretes and the pot for little over two months now .
I`ll smoke cheep cigars but it not as much as the cig`s were ( a pack or two a day). also suffer from cronick pain
and have cut my med intake in half within the past month . hopefully i can get myself completley clean and "FREE " eventually . what a process (more like a battle), may explain the strange vivid dreams i`ve been having , hopefully those will stop soon ..
Peace .. Stu ..

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I count 19 shows and no Wharf Rat. Maybe Shoreline?...
wow! what an amazing trip-ya a little strange too I guess!!! Hit up tables in Greensboro, D.C. and Charlottesville-which was AMAZING might I add-Black Peter is so powerful-great shows-great sobriety-I even got some great bumper stickers for my car! Now people can come up to me and ask who August West is-or what a Wharf Rat is for that matter-lol!!! I love all of you my brothers n sisters-thankx for being part of my family!!!peace, love, n sobriety-hcm
Just wondering if there will be a booth at the Forum for us? Didn't see one in Philly.....
Haven't seen any version of The Dead since I sobered up in 2000 and am heading to Shoreline on Sunday... can't wait to feel the music again. Will be with a solid buddy but am hoping to find a meeting at set break... any suggestions from those in the know?
Enjoy the shows, take care of each other and be well. Thanks for any help you can hoffer.

Original Wharf Rat from the East coast now living in Wyoming. 24 years clean and looking for Wharf Rats to hang out with at the Denver Show. HP provided a clean rider by "coincidence" when I posted on a local board. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 307-248-3117 (cell).
Some folks trust in reason, others trust in might, I don't trust in nothing, but I know it'll turn out right.
