30 Days


Well, I made it a month. No booze, no meth. No other illicit drugs either. After all, I'm not just trying to stay off booze and meth but change my life. And other drugs would keep me in the lifestyle.

It's hard to believe two things: how fast the last 30 days have gone, and how easy it was this time, relative to previous attempts. Last time I made it just over two months and was miserable the whole time. I think getting pulled over drunk and high and having my car searched might have been the @ss-kicking I needed to make it real this time. I have no idea how I was not arrested that night but I promised myself I was done, and I am.

Life rocks.

I had to read "spifferific" a couple times to figure it out.

Thanks again then, Sockboy. (Really, I'm an attention fiend. That's why I posted on the thread in SC, too )

Attention for doing well is awesome so you deserve it on two threads!

You really should be proud of yourself, you have a lot going on in your life and you are still doing it.
