I think I may have had a few conversations with Mike. Not sure if it is the same Mike or not.
I have to tell you that a few years ago on this very board, I rec'd a email/PM that a member passed away. As it turned out, that member sent the email/pm. I was the one to post of his "death" and that member set me up. I took a few hits from other members when he was discovered posting on another board about the "joke".
I realize that there are gosh aweful people out there. So, as you can imagine, reading this makes me a little gun shy. I am not callous to the fact that the disease of additction takes lives, trust me. It almost got me. Having said that, I hope you can trust the source of your information.
