I have people ask me how long I was sober before I was back to normal. I had to realy think about what normal was for me. I had been drinking and drugging so long, that it had become my normal. Not drinking was abnormal for me and it showed for a long time in my new sobriety. Tomorrow 7-13-11 is 3 years clean and sober for me. That includes nights and weekends too. My life is nothing today as it was 3 years ago. I don't have the same value system as back then, and my old friends haven't hung around either. I guess I have become a pooty parper, as I don't act like a fool anymore. I also am not 10 foot tall and bullettproof . I am more emotionaly stable than before. I am not as big a drama queen as I used to be. (small drama queen) For where I am today I have many people to thank here on DS. I am lucky to call most of them my friends. Thanks for the best half of my life. Randy

My bf was my rock and that has been really unsteady. Idk what to do, I’m scared. I’ve been...
