Double Douce Baby ...


And I'm not talkin' about the 22 ouncer of beer either :-) so 22 days & other then back spasms & try to type on my Android device while on my prescribed valium; I feel good . I am off the vicodin, yay me I hated them things. Now 3 Weeks later w\ a clear head, I am trying to mend fences now :-) . Been doing allot of reading on sobriety as well as Buddhism. My job is in tack & one of my main focuses. Keeps me sane & out of trouble. I feel so good that tomorrow since I am off I plan to post my WHOLE story so every one who has reached out knows where I came from & how I got in this dark ditch. Thanx All for listening.

Congrats!

I was a Buddhist for many years, about eight would be my guess. I moved away from it before my problems with alcohol started, but I think it'd be quite interesting to see where Buddhism & recovery intersect and compliment each other.

Hope I'm able to catch your story tomorrow. I've been coming to this site for years now--off and on. Yet I never get the least bit tired of hearing people's stories. They help keep me going.
