Hang in there James. You will do this. Being emotional and fearful are all part of the road from addiction to recovery. Be strong and let the fear and emotions come and go....accept that they are part of the way out and you cannot get through this wo going there......help me accept that too lol. Emotions and feelings can't kill you...addiction and relapse will. Stay brave and focused. These will pass. They do get worse everytime. Sending strength, Corey

Hello Mr ScotJoanOfArk :) Hey James.. I'm so Proud of you.. I knew you would make it !! The Warrior in you grows stronger every day !! Many think a warrior shows know feeling and feels no emotion but this is far from the truth as a warrior has no shame in his feelings.. he expresses them and works through them just as you have been doing.. You are doing so well james and I also look forward to Kim coming home.. not long now.. Have I told you I'm proud of you :)) I send warm hugs for my Brother.. letakos

Gonzo...you're wrong.  You harassed Kim last night and you're starting back again under the veil of concern and curiosity.  It won't work. We know who they are. We've spoken to them. We know where they live.  
Go help someone...
