    Good for you! & thanks for checking in with us over here at Bill's Place.

    I'm not concerned about the cigarettes...they don't affect our spirituality like the alcohol. Our serenity, sobriety, & spirituality are the most important things we have.

    Love & Hugs
    Bullette.

    My dad spent 25 years in chi-town. Visited it twice over the years but only went to fish for 3 days at the pump out lake and kankakee river for huge cats. Did get invited to tell my story in Philly once, lol. Talk about steak and cheese sandwhiches UUUUUMMMMM

Only took the loratab for 24 hrs after getting them out, so soar ness is dwindelling now. But don't like taking them damn things, but had to have some releif for a day or so.Mom thought "
    I was CRAZY for not taking them more, but shes not one of us, lol. Will have an interesting Area Confrence on march 8th. Were having a GSR Workshop and I was asked to give a 15 min talk on Unity in recovery. Looking forward to it EXCEPT having NO TEETH, lol. Gonna sound funny.

    Good job on the use of your meds, Foxman. People may think we're crazy but we do what we gotta do. I've been blessed that I've been through a lot of moderate pain and an awful lot of nites I could've used a sleeping pill, but never had to ask for anything.
    Altho I wasn't addicted to them, for some reason I have more fear of prescription meds than non/booze.

    I always try to keep in mind that altho I'm sober awhile, everyday is a new day and I have exactly as many hours sober today as a newcomer. My 3rd and last "bottom" was pretty low and I retain a healthy fear of a return to that.

    Thanx for the words guys. I LIKED IT ALL, lol, but always came back to the booze. I didn't like the way they made me feel, so I keep them for ABSOLUTE Emergency's. Having a Deteriating disk is no fun and will only get worse as time goes on. But I have to almost be in tears before I take one. One thing about it is the B-Book says there ok aslong as you don't abuse them , but I just don't for that exact reason. I know what I am and hope I always have that healty fear.

    Mornin guys :)
    Ouch. Sorry to hear about the teeth. Once the gums are healed, you will feel much better. Oh..you're gonna look good too.

    Yes. Healthy teeth & gums are very important to our overall health. Many times poor dental health affects heart health. My family learned this lesson many years ago. My dad had a dental procedure done & the disturbed mouth bacteria from the procedure attacked his heart valve. It was a week or more before they found what was causing him to be so sick. Ultimately, he had his heart valve replaced. All because of teeth.

    Here's to better health. (Cowdog raises coffee mug).

    Hey BabyK. I'm good as gold. Told folks in the meeting Fri noon that I felt like I was a newcomer riding the Pink cloud lately, lol. I've been VERY blessed with an oportunity to POSSIBLY open up my own Vape Store either Mid Apr or first of may. Been Busy as you know what trying to get all my ducks in a row. I tell my higher power to give my a sign if it is his will, and so far everything has just fell into place. The PROMISES do come true, lol.
