LESA 10356 IS 1 YEAR CLEAN

At midnight my time my most dear and wonderful friend Lesa is 1 year clean. Lesa has come through so much and fought off so many of her demons like the true warrior that she is. She offers strength, courage and true compassion to the forum and has helped many members here including me. I'm so proud of you for making your year as much as calling you my sister and friend. I will love and remember you for a lifetime girl. I'm happy dancing here in Pittsburgh. Sara...get out those happy dancing shoes. Love you always. I'll call tomorrow.. Corey

Congratulations Lesa......1 year is amazing!!!  You should be as proud of yourself as we are of you.  You have touched so many people out here .  I don't think you know how special of a person you are, so i am telling you.....

Sorry, I don't have any dances to offer you....unless you want a lap dance.....:-)~~Somehow I think you'll pass....lol

God Bless,
Nauty............

Gosh was sitting here feeling miserable then I read this.. Thank you corey for the recognition :) You know I love you my sister of the feather hood although Oct 2 is actually my 1 year clean I will accept it today :) I do not know how to fix my tracker lol but 1 year is almost upon me :) It has been difficult and at times trying.. even today I received a call my surgeon would like to see me enroll in pain management.. this I will not do but em seeking acupuncture and other means of controlling the pain.. Sara, worried Thank you also from the bottom of my heart.. in over 3 decades of being a addict I never thought I would see this day.. I owe so much to You all my Psychiatrist and Family.. I have not the words to convey my gratitude for what I have received.. I'm humbled that life can be so good even though I live with pain it is still good.. I'm so proud of everybody that makes the effort to reclaim their lives.. It is worth it..  I love and care for you all so much... May the wind always be at your back the mother guide your steps and the great spirit live in your hearts.. much love and respect.. lesa (letakos)
P.S. Happy dancing in Cali !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you all for you very kind comments and congratulations :) I'm very proud of how far I have come and I plan continuing living drug free.. I could not have done this without each and everyone of you.. my gratitude is great.. although the pain has really been getting to me lately the lessons I have learned the support and encouragement I read in every post has been a great source of strength. Thank you Terry for the pic complement for this was my desire for us to share in the beauty around us not to mention the great source of freedom I experience when I'm out taking the pics :) Thank you again..
