I've read that I should post one of these. Not sure what to write though so I guess I'll just give you a couple details about myself. I'm straight edge though I don't really like the title. I wasn't always, I just decided one day that getting drunk wasn't worth it and I haven't since. I frequent industrial...

Sounds like we are in the similar boat. I was nearly done with my degree when I realized it wasn't what I wanted to do. But I was so close I figured I better finish, so I did. Didn't get a job in the field like my friends and ended up doing nothing for a few months then got a job with my friend at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. Ending up spending 8 years there and took that experience and got the job I have now. Neither of which have to do with my degree. It's been so long since I've graduated that I don't remember any of what I went to school for so there's no way I could get something in the field even if I wanted to. But, I've looked around and found a few postings that might work out so we'll see.

Looks like we also have a similar path to be straight edge. I've tried pot and cigarettes, used to drink, to the point that I would fall down and hurt myself or just do something stupid and eventually just got tired of it and realized how stupid it was and that it just wasn't for me. I haven't had a drink or anything since 99.

I'm also one who didn't like to socialize much and never went out. But I met my wife through online dating and it's worked out.

I know we don't know each other and I'm not trying to preach or give advice or anything but if you ever do want to shoot the shit or something I can totally see where you're coming from. Hope that doesn't sound too weird, lol.
