September Congrats!!!!!!

Today is a Very Special Day for one of our Loved ones on here & another yr down for myself!!
DS should be MRS today and I am very happy for this Beautiful lady. She has been one of my Rocks since 2012. Congratulations DS and to your new Hub as well. You are the best!!! I know the Wedding is a Knock Out!!

Today I have 4yrs off of my addictive prescriptions, street drugs and so fourth, around 13-14-15 yrs off of Booze, but I have forgot that one because it has been to many yrs, however, just sub one for the other. It has not been a easy road to get here, but it was worth it all the way. I had SO many bumps of terrible news along the way, from loosing both parents & in-law, friends, dogs, in a short time, to finding out I had a silent heart attack and had to have two stents put in....WOW!! Talk about being scared straight. I had been doing tons of aftercare and from many different sources, to finally sitting still with my Bible Study & Church! Still hit them meetings too!! We do not come hooked overnight, so one thing to know is that it does take time to heal this disease. We will always have this disease, but it can be arrested at some point and recovery begins. Everyday I must put on my Armour and always keep that Guard Up! This Disease is NO JOKE and it can kick your Brain right back into that Stinken Thinken at any given moment. Changes & More Changes have to happen. Beware or Avoid Triggers. Everyone gets to a point where they become more in tune with what they need to be doing in order to stay clean. I am proud of my MH friends on here for doing so. You can take that bad habit that becomes grooved in your Brain and change it to a New one. Work-Time & Patience to do so...There are many books and videos out here about Addiction and the Brain, as I have found this to really say my ash too. ANYWAY!!! Congratulations DS and WE are proud that YOU are clean & sober today!!

Bless ALL
