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
There was a point?

Has anybody noticed wharfrat.org is not working? I dont even know if anyone checks up on it any more.
Peace and recovery,
Welcome aboard. Everyone has a direction, just some maps are a little harder to fold than others!!
People like you really tick me off.
I spent much of my life trying to figure out how to have "a few drinks or beers from time to time." Never could figure out why others seemed to be able to do it but I could not.
I'm one of those all-or-nothing kind of guys. (Actually it's more like all-then-nothing)
Hope you know I'm just kidding about being ticked off. Society needs strong family men like you. I always knew that was who I should be, it just took me 30 years to find a new way to live. Thanks for keeping the wheels on the bus while I was wandering around in the dark.
