so as i mentioned in my last post that a lot of changes for the good have happened in my life. I have been asked a couple of years ago by the TribeMod to tone down what i post. so as hard as that is because i shoot straight from the hip, do not BS people and do not sugarcoat anything about Recovery. I read a lot of the latest blogs with people asking for help or maybe a direction they can turn to. I do know that Recovery is not for everybody. Lightweights need not apply. Stop trying to complicate your lives. Get out of God's way and let Him work in your Life today. want to truly get clean. three simple steps, change your playmates, your playthings and play places. do not pick up no matter what. using is not an option today and neither is being miserable. Recovery simply has to become the most important thing in your life today. you either get it or you don't. some addicts have to continue to do more research. i am so grateful to God and my Recovery family that i have not found the need to relapse in almost 24 years. yes i did use for 22 years of my life. I was a rock and roll guitar player and a professional Radio DJ for over 35 years. Do I have all the answers? No i do not. sometimes i do not even know the question, but together we can find the answers. what we cannot do alone we can do together. if yuo wish to have some suggestions about getting and stay clean, i would ask you if and when you take a break from using that you go to my page and read the over 200 blogs offering suggestions on how to get clean and stay clean. I wish i could give everyone my testimony and story. life is a roller coaster ride and sometimes you have to hold onto your butt with both hands. if you go to NA lengths to get clean or half the distance you didf to get loaded then staying clean should be a head start for you. I truly do not know what to say to prove to you that it truly works if you work it. Good choices and good changes are a step in the right direction. please Remember that Recovery is a Journey not a Destination and use the rest stops that God provides along the way…………I hope this helps those who are looking for the true answers to getting and staying clean……….NA Hugs, JJ in Kaneohe, Hawaii…….

     I just want to thank you for the messages you have been sending. i sat down and have read them over and over again. and its good to have someone that has been there and knows what its like. its been hard for me. but i feel like its different this like something has clicked that didnt click with me before. i know there is no easy fix to my addiction but im putting 100 percent and then some into this and staying on track. I want to be better for myself and for my family. i read your story and im like wow. but you have giving me so much inspiration i dont even know it words can express it. and since ive been looking at how strong is my faith and having the relationship i should have with god that has been such a big help. it amazes me how much of an impact having string faith can make. ive been trying to fight this thing on my own for so long. and this past week i have just been waking up praying during the day praying and go to sleep the same. and i swear its makes a difference. it has made me feel different in side. i know i still i have a lot of work to do but i definitely know im on the right track.
