arthur & shappy, WELCOME HOME!-good to have ya here
arthur-if you want it, last nite can be your "last 1st" mtg-it can be done, there is hope-look at all the cats here, we're proof
shappy-glad to meet another OH Rat-don't worry about the shoulda, coulda kind of thing-to quote the NABT, "it's not where we were, but where we are going"
i'm sure a lot of y'all already know, but for those that don't, there's wharfrats.org too-not tryin' to take anything away from this site, it's just another place to hook up, & personally, i need all the help i can get-love y'all
Hey all. I found this place thanks to Hoss. I am new in recovery and am looking learn more about the wr's. Have seen the table for years and always knew I should have stopped and opened up. oh well. I am here now!! Anyone out there in ne ohio? Y-town area? peace, Shappy
nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile
Good job on the 9 mos. Headlight, and 3 yrs. Hoss. I found a new meeting last night, first time, and got a desire chip. Awright!
thanks izzie, & thanks for having a section for us rats here
thanks to the resta y'all too, just for postin' here-i been strugglin' a bit lately, having trouble enjoyin' life like i should & havin' trouble finding the courage to change the things i can-gotten sorta burnt out on NA in my area, so it's nice to find another way to stay in contact w/those in recovery-i know it's all just feelings, & they'll pass like everything else, but it's gettin' sorta old puttin' one foot in front of the other day after day-oh well, at least it ain't as bad as it used to be, a dopeless hope fiend is a better place to be than a hopeless dope fiend
I'll dance a fine jig, just for you. and congrats on 3 years clean-time. That's great!
maybe i shoulda called it "hubbaville"-nah, just messin' around-i'm familiar w/the boys, back to when they played the Bear Creek Fests b4 they cut any disks-worked stage crew at the Ledges (set up & tear down) when they played there somewhere early 2000's-never went to a show specifically to see them, for one reason or another they just never tripped my trigger
it'd be worth going just to see DSO + some other Family & Phriends though-funds are sorta low, i don't vend like i used to, & to be perfectly honest i just ain't been in the right headspace lately to be in what can be a pretty crazy place-as much as it feels right to be back w/Family, it's still a bit strange to be at a show clean-i sometimes have to remind myself to breathe & listen to the music play, rather than runnin' around crys'ed out chasin' custies & the almighty $
i've only been to one show since i got clean 3yrs ago, 1st year out of necessity, & since then the details just haven't come together right-i know i'll make the ones i'm supposed to though, things happen the way they're meant to, maybe right this moment just ain't my time-as much as i dislike it sometimes, i've realized if i just participate in the movie, rather than trying to direct it, it works out a lot better-hope all y'all that make it there have a blast-be safe, love each other, & do a little jig for me
gawd I hope not, or I'm gonna have one weird weekend.
so i take it it's a hookerville thing?-probably won't make this one, hopefully next time
