I’m wicked clean and sober, and I even finally got off nicotine.

I don’t regret a life lived without booze or drugs. I was about eleven years sober when I stopped lying all the time. Not lying all the time gives me a better shot at being intimate with others.

About 3 months sober, possibly more. Longest so far for the likes of me.

I will have the odd beer, but its of the 0.2% variety. And thats not often.

Developed a terrible sweet tooth tho.

I take too many meds to drink alcohol can’t smoke due to lung problems but as far as clean goes have you read what these meds do

When i drank on the Seraquol - the sedative effects were 10x stronger. I used to fall into bed cos it would hit me so hard.

Certainley not good for my liver. Its nice not to wake up with a hangover every morning and dry heaving. I almost got used to it.

Cheers, mate. 29 years clean and sober over here. No booze, drugs, or cigs since Feb 11, 1992.

Doesn’t matter. The AA program says that meds prescribed by doctors are okay. It’s when you self-medicate with stuff not prescribed by a doctor, that is considered using/abusing.

I have never smoked, and I really don’t drink. Maybe once every 6 months or more.

I’ve been clean for 6 years, and while I still drink, it’s barely once a month, and I no longer do it to self-medicate or “numb the pain”

I’ve never done drugs except prescribed drugs. But I’ve been addicted to food and that’s difficult.
