Oh, I though you were 24 years old, but I can see from your profile a little older…heh.  Me 53 and grew up in the same time period.  I mis-read your other post.  Yeah, I feel good already; it's just a different life style; something I'm not used to at all, since I've been drinking basically 30 years non-stop.  Yeah.."2 left feet newly sober"...but I don't want to take a step back at this point.  Now that would be depressing.

I have a ibizan-ism...the small amount of time u'll spend relapsing is a drop in the bucket compared to the large amount of time u'll kick ur booty for having done so!i've been told i don't look my age and i sure don't act it!II went thru rehab age 28.My addiction to valium and coke on top of the alcohol made me very ill and forced me to accept complete loss of control young.I have gratitude to my drug addiction for that!

yes.. the doc told if didnt stop drinking .. it would stop me. to let you understand im four foot nine inches tall and my weight at the moment is around 7 stones. so my body has taken alot of abuse..my feet were starting 2 swell an i knew that was a bad sign.. The librium seem 2 be working for me .. im just afraid the doc will take me off them
