I’d like to add one thing- don’t want to make pressure but Markz, you were the guy who showed me that if need be, you can just stay away from troublesome stuff and you won’t have issues. I saw your story and said “I can do it too.” 
When you slip a little voice says, “See, it’s not really possible.”

So keep in mind all those who were and are inspired by you.

Markz, I think hashem throws you in a fall every few hundred days just to make sure that you remain active on the forum...
I can't think how the forum would be without you.

I was looking for the "Thank you but No Thank you" button....

We're in the same boat - I just don't want to be sinking!

My brain is still wired to my escapades and is pulling me in that direction, and even if I'm somewhat tech smart, I have no clue how to rewire. Nevertheless I'll try just a little not to slip on this black ice...

I wanted to thank each and every one of you dear brothers that responded here - it keeps me sane tonight too - seriously ;-)

Markz,

Would you think of displaying your new count? Do you think that would help at all?

As I mentioned sometime back, it's not on the "what works for me" list. 
Its not what got me my first 600 days...
I do it - more so others see it can be done... but in that case... I can also be indicating that relapse can be done. So maybe I shouldn't display it?

As far as I recall dov and others would prefer a sobriety date - so would I, and I think it's a lot more productive

I don't want to make a big issue of counting days on this thread, and think it has been discussed enough here on gye...

You got it wrong. You’re my Rebbi; I’m just the Talmid asking a question.

Ok listen my talmid - last night instead of KosherTubing, I finally started beH on a new work Project that may rake in multi-million dollar revenue (I wish...) which only happened with your notube encouragement. You should charge commission...
