Introduce myself


Hi all,
I just came across this website and it looks great. I'm 32, orignally from the east coast and moved out to northern Illinois a year ago. I've been sober since 3/1/2008 and nicotine free since 1/1/2008. I decided I needed to take control of my life and I have and it's the greatest feeling in the world. I tried AA but it was not for me, just not my thing. I'm happy to find such a great community online.
