Didn't realize this was a club I HAD to join. My life is my problem or blessing whichever I CHOOSE to make it. Peace and take care of yourselves!
you know the deal-people, places, and things, man. do the right thing. it's okay, not one of us is perfect. i hope you have a lot of good support out there. we all have another drunk or high in us, but how many recoveries to we have in us???
peace and good luck
nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile
HippieChuck-see that,i thoght i could have a fewonce in a while,now i am struggling.i think alot of you have got it just a little off.it doesnt matter what you share,how much you value your sobriety,or anything else like that...it is a god thing,you have to be right w/god...i know alot of people who did all the right things,were well respected for their time and wisdom,and guess what ,they too arent around sobriety today,some have died....alot of the people around would give me the cold shoulder when i slipped,and then it happened to them.i hope this doesnt make anyone mad,i am not tryin' to do that.i truly love you all.it dont matter,nobody has more than 1 day....peace n love-hippiechuck
HippieChuck-got to tell ya',i was drinkin' on and off ,not too bad!i thought i was clean,havin' a few now and again......well now i am doin' it when i dont want to,that really sucks!i am connecting with old friends though,gonna give recovery another shot....anyone got garcia or allmans shows for discs and postage?...i'll check in if i have any new developments......
You might want to back off a little. Nobody is attacking you.
As far as choice goes...Nobody ever held a gun to my head and made me drink or do dope. I never slipped and fell into a bottle, a pipe or a needle. I chose to do those things. I chose to do 'em over and over again. There were times when I felt like I had no choice, but I was wrong.
Society doesn't owe me squat. If anybody owes, it is me.
Maybe it was different for you, I don't know. But as a friendly suggestion, you may want to read up a little on the steps and traditions. Particluarly step 10 and tradition 12.
Steve-O strikes me as a nice guy who was just trying to be friendly and supportive.
sorry their is two post on same thing first onis when i responded to you Steav_O i was heated.then they didnt put my post up so i wrote another one "calmned down",and posted it then they both got submited??? peace heathaafeathaa
you did miss the point.that speaks volums.a real alcoholic/addict does not have a choice weather we drink/or put drugs in our body.we dont have a choice WE LOST IT!!society still does not educate on the disease.which takes many lives.a wharfrat is a sober head.that does not mean we use drugs or alcahol on ocassion or once in awhil.we canot put in or it sets a phenomonien of craving off for us.it is a deadly disease.im grateful you are one of the few that does not have this allergy.i almost died several times od had no clue ya think i woke up on day and said i think ill go od.this is a seriouse illness.most do not make it.i do not go in these on line "sober chat rooms "i thaught oh this will be cool,i once again learned do not negate intuition.im not tryin to be rude to you in fact when surffing other sites i enjoy you sharing.well peace,and i hope maybe i get the air cleared of bad energyi guess i figured out why their is hardly any new threads posted here.peace, heathaafeathaa
