its been the longest in like......pretty much my life...that i havent used anything. been making me a mess!

brain overload with every minor event, everything is a crisis aaaaaaagh. no real work is getting done, because there is too much stupid fucking minor shit falling apart like idk my cactus died, raaaaaaaah rip my heart out, wtf? idk.

i am freaking the fuck out all the time over stupid shit. i pretty much alienated myself. its maken me go psychotic. i see and hear shit for hours at a time and wake up talken to my wall, and have ben for the last hour, didnt evne realize it. im nuts.

jesus maybe i should not have gotten sober, the booze was probly the only thing keeping me fucking sane!

I been sober sometime longer but today totally frustrated by little stuff. Felt like slapping the shit out of my computer

Fortunately I know that takeing a drink or acting out will only make things worse

Hang in there

AWESOME, limit!

What substances were you using? As you know, withdrawal from different substances causes different symptoms. Hope you're not going it alone!!!

Totally Awesome my friend. Hang in there, it does get better. Haven't had a drink, except communion, in over 27 years. Actually, March 14 will be 28 years. Sometimes I think it would be nice to have a beer or something, but the feeling of losing control while drunk had kept me from using. Well, that and God.

I am totally in awe of the work you have done so far. You are a champion my friend...a true champion.

for me it was just alcohol but i would take anything i could get my hands on. so different things. alcohol just the steady one. since it's always around. i had a stash of stuff in iraq that was laced with heroin, it was like money. it was supposedly laced with all this heroin. i remember i got desperate enough one night and i kept lighting them up and trying to get high. it didn't work and ... yeah. that was kind of a low point. ._.

A guy opens the front door and sees a snail on his doorstep. He picks up the snail and throws it across the street in a neighbor's yard. A year later, the guy opens the front door and the same snail is on his doorstep. The snail says, "What the f*ck was that about?"

Well Done man
Keep it up. It sucks that you have to begin feeling now, the alcohol has dulled the feelings and you then don't have to deal with life.
Now that you have stopped drinking, you can start to feel and deal with your CSA issues.

Please please don't think about drinking again, it is better to feel and deal with your past,

Go for it man, keep it up.

Heal well

I stopped drinking a year and a half ago.


I was on a down hill ride to hell and was taking people with me.

I can't tell you how much better I feel and think now. I am a totally differant person.

I am very proud of you for what you are doing.

You are almost there brother, hang in there! It is worth it!!!

All I ever wanted was a hug.
