    Today I celebrate 10 years clean & sober.
    10 years ago I was an under the bridge dwelling heroin addict scumbag.(heroin is what I loved the most but did everything I could)
    It took a long time to get to that place.
    It's a long story to get to where I am now, but I am blessed & grateful.
    Anyways thanks fabo for keeping my mind in a good place, except my wife thinks I'm addicted to fabo now lol

      10 yrs sober for me, Christmas day

      Some friends and I just did an intervention on another friend who almost drank himself to death. He was yellow, and his abdomen was bloated. Yes, terminal chirrosis. the Dr said he has Maybe 18 months. You have to be sober for a year to get on the liver transplant list and then it is a long wait. You do the math.

      No Health insurance.
      No money.
      No quality of life.

        Good for you. Never lose faith or your self worth. My father in law was an alcoholic and a cocaine user so i get it. Glad to see you found the way before it was too late. God bless you

              Congrats, I'm sure it's been a long hard road, but the rewards are SO worth it.

                Glad to see you took the path to turn your life around for the better. 2 weeks ago a fellow I worked with buried his 25 year son because of his problem with drugs. He exhausted all ways to try and get his son off the problem.

                          I can't express the admiration that I have for you. Kicking that was no small feat, and no doubt speaks volumes of the type of person you must be. Congratulations, you should be proud:thumbsup:

                            Congratulations on your 10 year chip, could not have been an easy road for you, I was very close to someone who was addicted to alcohol and drugs a long time ago and I saw how difficult it was for her to get clean and sober. May your life continue to bring you all of the happiness you have earned.

                              I was lucky to have to the LAW as the wind for my sail during the 1st 11 months with drug court.
                              Back when Seattle prosecuted drug offenses, I feel sorry for those who are addicted and wanting to change, some of us need that extra pending prison sentence as a push

                                            I remind people from time to time that people in general have some form of vise. It can range from OCD to Heroin. It all comes down to which one consumes you and how much. Some worse than others obviously and Heroin is right at the top.

                                            Good for you OP. Keep putting the work in. I read in a different thread about your current job. Stick with it and keep learning....
