About Me: Male, 60, Las Vegas, NV, member since Mar 2007
I'm a recovering alcoholic and haven't had a drink since Dec. 20,1990 However, about 10 years ago I got into a motorcycle accident and injured C3 and C4 along with L knee, L elbow and L hand. I recovered from the injuries but was put on pain meds which I felt I really n

Once every couple years I know what I'm doing and know I need to get back on course. I would c/t off the meds just to start up again a few months later. Over and Over. Well now I'm 50 years old, enough is enough, I know this stuff,I know I'm an addict, I very much know I'm an addict. My health will not stand any more detoxes, I really believe that, I've had a heart attack at 47, I have high blood presure and I don't drive, I ride motorcycles. All high risk stuff that needs to be handled with a clear head. I ended up using 180 mg Oxy every day, It's over, I cannot do this any longer. I have grandkids now and they like me, I can't die on them, not to mention my 3 wonderfull daughters and the most supportive wife a man could have. So... I'm getting back to what I did so well for many many years but forgot...My Recovery...There you have it, Thankyou all for being here, again.
