Solo trip...


Hey!! It is damn refreshing to see so many people out there seeking to live a life void of external intoxication! I will be hitting my 15 year mark tomorrow...I am 35 an sobered up pretty damn early...coming closer to this mark I have realized that I have completed much of this journey on my own...support from family and friends and such...but have pretty much been working my own program...the way it works for me...
What I am getting at is I feel that it is time to reach out...share...help...listen to stories...tell my story...and become more involved in what it is to be sober and living a healthy life!!

Today is no different than the day that I sobered up...we are always in the here and now...and seeing the world through unsaturated eyes now...get through the muck today...and tomorrow will come when it comes...there is much to see and do and be out there...

Celebrate that Goodness!

Still Poppin and Lockin!!

Good to be here!!

Thanks the both of you...I am looking forward to hearing and sharing without a doubt!!

I did get very lucky catching my "inability to moderate anything side" early...not a day goes by that I am not grateful for that! Many a high adventure has been had through clear eyes..

Deadset,

What a great, inspiring post! Thank you for brightening my day. It is very admirable that you have 15 years sober at only 35 years old - wish I would have gotten a handle on things that young. I love it. Congratulations!

Lovin and livin...

Thanks!! It has been quite the journey and as you know...the journey is always today...an tomorrow...I have learned much...but much to learn...

Living in this life of ours...sober...eyes seeing clearly is a gift that many don't get this time around...because of our particular love of mind altering substances...this has indeed given us a chance to kick that **** to the curb...and live life the way we were intended to

Be here now
