Yes great job. Good to be clean. Well there are still lots of ups and downs but at least now we can plan our lives with staying clean in mind. Every one around us deserves the best version of us. Especially Us!
I have to say its a pretty rare thing for 3 kicking buddies to ALL 3 Kick pretty much together and are still clean after three weeks! We have a chance to be an EPIC trio here if we all stay clean! Which we WILL! I know I don't want to be the one to break our streak!

Happy Mother's Day to you Jess!  And great posts of late....you're doin it!!

Not to get too serious about the number "3", "Three", but my mind just jets off into this weird place of its own when I think of the #3 & its significance.

Yep, probably three musketeers.....
the three kicking buddies
the three zombies
the three stooges

But also.....even MORE things that come in three's:

The 3 "S's" for success in recovery:  Sources, Secrets, Support

Faith, Hope and Love

Happy, Joyous and Free are we in our recovery!
Hint:  if you say that one above with a certain beat....it even ryhmes! haha!

And lastly a favorite of mind:

"A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer.  THREE are EVEN BETTER, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken".  (Ecclesiastes 4:12...NLT)

Rock ON you "three".........

Awwww, thanks. That's sweet. It's been a great group of people on here. Helping through the crazy days. Those are the hardest. You literally feel like no one could possibly understand. But, alas, they do. And it's been wonderful on here. Ability to tell these people so openly about things that are so hard to say to other people. I've gained a lot of insight and strength by finding this group!

And don't forget THREEsome! ( my personal favorite THREE lol!)

There is also 3D - where things are much more real and clear.
There is the triple in baseball - not quite a home run but much harder to pull off IMO.
The three kings in the bible.
Three matrix movies
Three LOTR movies
Three Hangover movies
3 doors down
3'rd eye blind
Man now I am really reaching :)

Anyway this is a good group to be a part of and I'm proud of all of us!

And us 3 are at 3 weeks! It's getting a little freaky. Not like that Back2Me. Ha! But it's great to have all of us so different, but the same. Thanks for being there. Everything happens for a reason!

Oh I noticed :)
The FREAK is back in action. Oh the stories I could tell related to the number 3!
But alas, this is not that kind of forum :pppp

Lets just say I'm married to probably the only person on the planet who digs chicks more than I do ;))

Oh and zombieland is one of my favorite moves EVAR!

Oh and funny story, I JUST jumpped out of the shower, I was cleaning my earrings and my right one popped out (just had them re-pierced like a week ago) and I could not get the b-hole back in my ear, the sumbitch closed instantly. So I had to have my wife put is back in the front and jam in back through the back RE PIERCING it! All this by hand. I was sweating bullets so hard I soaked all the cloths I had just put in fresh. And had to jump BACK IN THE SHOWER!

So yeah, the nerves are still a little touchy! :)

Love me some Zombieland too. :). Kind if ironic that we've BECOME zombies. But, I love my zombie crew.

Your nerves will probably have a lower threshold for a whole. That's what I'd assume. Even once the surface anxiety begins to even out, we'll probsbly find the nerves overreacting more than usual For a while. And, now that we have each other, it'll be easier to stay on track. Like B said, none of us wants to be the first to slip up, so we can be great motivators for each other. And there for each other if something DOES happen. :). Gn my friends
