Hi Happy,

I am an AA member with nearly 16 years of sobriety and if a
f*#%ed @$$hole like me can get it anybody can. I've only started dealing with my abuse issues recently but I would never be able to tackle them if I was drinking and drugging. A sober guy faces the feelings and survives them. You will too.

"But now old friends are acting strange,
they shake their heads, they say I've changed.
Something's lost but something's gained in living every day
....it's life's illusions I recall, I really don't know life at all. "
Joni Mitchell
