Hello my fellow addicts and friends!
I used to be a regular on this board a couple years ago. It helped me in more ways than I could begin to list but the best thing thru my journey back then was that I made a couple friends that I know will be lifelong! One friend that I actually consider my best friend. So this board has been a huge blessing for me!
Addiction is the nastiest demon of all time if you ask me. I would like to say I am in full blown recovery now but that is not the case. I am being treated for a chronic pain issue that is completely legit but I will never lie and say that the measly amount of meds they do give me on a monthly basis that there are not times I don't take more than I should because i do for a couple reasons.. 1. Because the pain is really out of control and reduces me to tears but.. 2. Because I look forward to every dingle second of reduction of pain and last but not least that high we all know that keeps us all trapped in this horrible nightmare of addiction.
Well, that's enough about me for my first post in years
I would love to see how many old timers there are still on this board and I of course look forward to getting to know everyone else that I may not have had the pleasure of meeting yet!
This saying i am going to write below I am stealing from someone who was on the board a few years ago who I really respected and this phrase is one that stuck with me and maybe will help someone else out there like it did me..
