Congrats, Mark! That's great time!

Got an extra laying around you forgot about? LOL

Mark, Congratulations! You have proven that we do not have to be subject to anything. It is in our power, and the power of a higher power, to be what we want and should be!

A million kudos!

You have my total respect and admiration for this accomplishment.

Thanks for celebrating with us.

Lots of love,

Let me just add to the chorus, and say "Congrats" too...
There's been too many people i cared about, that i had to turn away from, because they couldn't even admit they were doing it in the first place, let alone that they had a problem. I know from my experience with drinking- if you're hooked, no matter what anyone else says or does, or what happens, you won't stop, unless you are truly ready to- or your body quits on you, whichever comes first... Be proud of yourself, Mark!

Give sorrow words: the grief that does not speak
Whispers the o'er-fraught heart and bids it break.

What a happy post! I too had a wicked cocaine addiction which only aggravated my acting out and nearly killed me. Today I have a little over two years off cocaine and over three months of total sobriety since my relapse. I was very happy to read about a brother who had been able to shake the habit for such a long and successful time. My heart feels glad for you, but still be careful!

Hell yes! congratulations. That says a lot about your inner strength and character! You are an avatar of hope for many that are still struggling with their addictions.

Well done sir. Keep it up!


Truth is the very reason we strive to live. It surrounds and resides within us. Accepting the truths we already know and seeking out those we do not is a direct path to inner balance and joy. For life is not a means to an end, but a journey. Life comes and goes but the truth will always live on.
