    Thanks, all. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Wife treats May 23 like a second birthday; got a neat Merkur safety razor and sushi lunch.

    Ten years is a chunk of life. I've given up very little to gain a lot.

    Rainbow, did you read the whole thread? Years ago, Mike became the professional inspiring the rest of us. And speaking of inspiration, Mike, thank you for bringing back our old friends who were never really gone.

    another time another place

    as the sun climbs
    the sun also falls
    it rolls down in the west
    that great blazing ball
    and it's gone

    the darkness surrounds us without a sound
    all that once dazzled now under the ground

    but the sun also rises as we will some day
    in the fields of the lord where together we'll play​

    I hear you buddy. Mine was 15 years, during that time, it felt like all was well, when in actuality I lost everything. Thank goodness I wasn't married, until the 14th-15th year, and it was my wife who pulled me from the darkness with some tough love, but I am in a much better place now, and I would NEVER go down that dark road ever again, because I know what is like on this road of light, and I like the view!

    Glad to know that there are others on my same path, and that I am not alone.

    EVERYBODY walks this path whether it is online porn, expensive toys, tobacco, job advancement, money, gambling, surfing the internet, hiding in house or whatever....every human fights daily with inordinate attachment to someTHING which they depend and are inordinate attachment to created THINGS which deep down they know will end with them.....we are brothers and sisters ALL in this fight....

    A grizzled old fellow pushing his way through the swinging doors of the Cantina. Looks like he's seen a lot. Experience, and perhaps hard-earned wisdom, can be seen in his visage.

    Welcome back, old timer.

    Mark Twain said there were lies, damned lies, and statistics...nothing has changed for 200 yrs, or 2000, for that matter....

    congrats on your happy anniversary.i never was alcohol dependent, but have a vague idea what it was like overcoming nicotine dependency after smoking up to 3 packs of cigarettes a day for 30 years, and have now been smoke free for the last 20. i applaud your "won't power".

    Congratulations Ad Astra,
    10 years is an incredible start on the rest of your life ;) Your wife has the right idea, that is your true re-birth day. It takes a lot of strength as well as a lot of support so I send out smoke, prayers and best wishes to you AND your wife for you continued success for the next 10 and the 10 after that.

    Please as has been mentioned don't let this be your last posts here. Stop by the Cantina and share your HI experiences with us newer folk and a few you may still recognize still stop by occasionally.
