Hello from an old board member

Just thought i'd pop by and say hello to faces old & new

Hope everyone is doing well?!?!

Its been a long time since i last posted. I also had to check the date of my 1st post to see how long ive been clean. My 1st post was 14/11/07 - that was the 1st day of my methadone withdrawals. 3 years & 5 months! It feels like a lot longer - which is a good thing considering how much of my life i wasted on opiates.

I just want to wish all those who are trying to make a go of life without addiction, all the very best. You are worth more. You've made the right choice. At times it might be extremely difficult - but i can assure you that all the physical/mental trials & tribulation of getting to the point of becoming clean - becoming "Human" again. ARE worth it. You can do it - you just have to WANT it more than anything else.

Just keep on keeping on - one day at a time. Count those days til they turn into months, til the months turn into years, til you get to the point where counting is no longer a yard stick by which you measure your life.

If there are any old friends on here still - i hope life is treating you well & that you're happy. Im sorry i dont post much - but i am grateful to all the wise words of advice & messages of encouragement i received during my spell of recovery. It all helped

take care of yourselves - best wishes & all my love

Re: Hello from an old board member

Hi, thanks for the kind words man... I am fairly new here, but fit in pretty well lol I've become pretty friendly with everyone and am now clean around 30 days from a 3 1/2 year roxi addiction from sport/work accident related injuries.

Anyway, pretty cool you came back after so long to say hi, I keep telling myself even though I am clean to stick around and talk with everyone and I look forward to being 3+ years clean!!

thanks again and hi!
