Hi Folks!! Im brand spankin new here.....

Hello, My name is Josh, Im 35 and Ive been sober since 2/26/2011...a little over 3 months which I was at owls nest recovery center in SC. Looks like a great site and am looking forward to this rocky road of spirituality and living clean and sober. Lord knows I got a long road ahead after 20 years of hard drugs and daily drinking.

Welcome wharfrataa! I am also 35 this year and have been drinking for 20 years daily. Curious to know how you feel after 3 months, I'm at day 17? This is a wonderful site. I'm on a couple of times a day.

Hey wharf rat! Always room for another dead head! We had a guy here not too long ago, augustwest... LOL. I was just listening to winterland 73 today... Good stuff! I see you are AA, there is a 12 step section... I find Hunter's lyrics at times to be very spiritual.

Welcome to SR!! Stick around and keep posting!
