I was not stoked about returning to Reno, but I was willing to go where life led me. An opportunity to move to Portland - living with a dear friend - popped up suddenly and I pounced on it. Life kicks ass if you are patient and let it do its' thing. biggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrin

I've realized I no longer need to try and force my will upon the world to get what I want/need. The cosmos shall present the path which I should take. It is up to me to walk this path with equal parts vigor and humility. If I do this, I will end up right where I need to be - healthy, happy, and free. wink

that is an amazing life prespective, I wish I could be like that to be honest, but I get upset really easily... anyway, thank you so much for the support in my set! kiss

72 DAYS CLEAN & SOBER!!!

I don't know what I was more apprehensive of, being sober or staying sober. Distorting reality was my favorite pastime. Alcohol and dope were my best friends. Toxic friends they were, taking and never giving, depriving me of several elements of life; financial security, quality relationships, healthy youthful experiences, emotional maturity, etc.

The last few years have been spent dwelling on loss, roaming aimlessly through a realm of negative affect, my mind clouded by IPA's and bong loads. The angrier I became at the world, the more it reacted in kind. Abstinence from drugs and alcohol has changed that. I am so thankful...

This facility is awesome!!!

I was surprised to find out that I get to keep my phone and my computer. But, there is so much FREE stuff to do on base that I need not worry about relapsing due to boredom.

I have access to a bowling alley, 9 hole par 3 course with a driving range, theatre, billiards hall (w/ shuffleboard and darts,) zen...

I'm glad you're getting yourself help. That takes guts. I'd wish you luck, but that makes it sounds like everything is purely chance based and you've made the choice to help yourself on your own. The facility sounds pretty awesome! You're in my thoughts.

Sobriety, here I come!

Today is the big day. I'll be taking a Greyhound bus to White City, Oregon where I will be a patient at a VA (veterans administration) sponsored substance abuse center.

Back in the biggest little city and I'm going to try and enjoy it this time. No more bitchin' about the haters and rednecks, they're always gonna be here anyway. Plus, Reno is getting better. A few more years and this place may just be livable.

Songs for a desert island.

I often wonder what I might take with me had I the option to choose ten songs (or albums) to spend the rest of my days with; say, stuck alone in outer space or on a deserted island.

I know that Bloody Kisses from Type O Negative would provide some five star diversity to my collection. But I can't...

Question: It's 1:00 pm on Xmas morning (I've only been up for an hour) and I'm thinking about having a beer, should I? confused

I ask because I only have two remaining and don't know what kind of journey I might have to go on later should I want more. surreal

I'm gonna smoke a bowl and contemplate the merits of...

Law school is kicking my ass! I never had to study as an undergrad, much less remain sober. I've had to quit drinking and can only get blazed at night, even on the weekends! Oh well, the material is challenging and stimulating. Overall, I love it.

If you were operating a runaway train, would you rather run over 1 person you know and love or 100 strangers?:

420...420...420...

Grad school starts in a month. I know I should stop smoking weed, at least for the first semester. But damnit, I just don't want to.

Oh well. I guess I'll just take a rip and think about it some more.
