i'm a young kid and i'm

i'm a young kid and i'm really grateful to have a chance at recovery this early in life. i was on furthur tour for a while and uh ya know, whiskey and l was what we lived on like everyone else.
i remember always walking by the wharf rats table and never knew what the hell was going on. never had any idea that those people were sober or that i was an addict. never knew why everyone was always clapping and why they weren't drinking. i always thought wharf rats was like some group of old heads and i wasn't welcome.
anyways i started getting sober over the summer after catching a case in the summer and i've never been happier. i was at the spac show over the summer but couldn't find the table but i'll be at albany on tuesday and that will be my first wharf rats meeting.

i live in schenectady, ny right now and go to aa meetings around the area. if you live in the area, give me a holler. i would love to meet ya and would love to know if there is already wharf rats meetings up here, and if not, i'd like to try to get it going

see ya tuesday

MidAmerica further tour

I see you're from Indy. I'm going to St. Louis shows with two sober friends and then to Indy by myself. Will be my first sober show by myself. I'm a guy that just turned 50 and I've been sober a year and a half. Are you going to St. Louis or Indy shows?

St Louis and Indy Furthur Shows 11/20 - 11/21

Hey, I hadn't seen anything but a couple of Ratdog shows since 95 until Furthur at Red Rocks last month. Was awesome and I'm going with two sober friends from Little Rock to the St. Louis show. But they're going home and I'm not going to miss the last show of the tour the next night, so I'm heading to Indy. Thing is, it'll be my first time in the environment alone since I got clean/sober March 19, 2010. I expect I need to hook up with some sober Deadheads that will be in Indy. Anybody out there?

Red Rocks Rats

I just got back from Colorado yesterday. What a great experience!!! The shows were amazing, especially the 2nd sets Sat. and Sun. What made the whole weekend for me, however, was that I got a call Sunday morning from the Wharf Rats table coordinator for CO (Bill H.) asking me to step up and replace him at the table that night. Not only did I get to chair an awesome meeting at set break, but I got to see my first clean and sober "Wharf Rat"!! I am very Grateful!!

Didn't know this was here.

I'd like to thank Wharf Rat Brian B. from S. Fla. for posting the info about this forum on the WR list group. I didn't know it was here. I've been a Deadhead since 1982 and a Wharf Rat since 2008. It's been a very important part of my recovery. My home group is now a non-affiliated (not AA or NA) Wharf Rats meeting in North Miami. I've had the opportunity to work the WR table at four of the five Furthur shows I've been to in the last couple of years. I've been happy to discover that this music gets me high without drugs or alcohol, something I was not aware of for many, many years.
