Hey Guys,

My name is mike, and I am new here. I am looking to make some new friends, and build a support group.

I am 42 years old, and honestly don't fel a day over 35. I am prior US Air Force, and was sationed over in Germany fot 2 years back in the early 80's.

My abuse started when I was just 10 years old. Let me back up, when I was just 7 years old my mom devorced my bological (real) dad because of his drinking problem.

I am the oldest child of 3. I have one sister 2 years younger, and one younger brother by 5 years.

My mom later remarried and my step father was a pedifile who focused on me from the time i was 10 until I was 17. When I was about 12 I started smoking pot which both my mom, and my step father smoked although my mom insisted that they never smoked in fron of any of us kids.

I would go and visit my real dad, and he would let me drink.

I feel that I must explain that the reason I drank, and smoked was to escape from my screwed up life. I knew that I was going to be mantally screwed up for the rest of my life, because of my #$#$%&#& !!! step father.

What I did not know is that my respect for authority figures would be destroyed, and to this very day I often find myself in the middle of rebelling.

Well, again "hello" and I am really looking forward to getting to know some of you.

With Love,

Mike
