Dear Harav BB,
I am in awe of your accomplishment. I have read many of your blog entries and find great chizzuk from them. I have been slipping and sliding for 6 months now and am trying so hard to get traction.
Please have me in mind in your tefillos and may the rbs"o grant you a sweet clean year!

Hi BB and thank you for this thread.

May HaShem give us another day of recovery.

I could not have become sober without going to SA and I would not have gone to SA if it wasn't for you Chesky.

And I would not have gone to SA without Zemmy, so thank him.

On second thoughts (or first) let's all thank HaShem.

Who would have believed three years ago that we would be talking like this?

But i just want to remind myself that i am (still) an addict and without help from HaShem I have NO chance of staying sober today.

And even with SA I would not be sober today without Dov.

And I probably wouldn't have gone to SA if it wasn't for you, BB.

Yup!
Admin put these lines here cuz he likes 'em:
"The heart needs to be broken when will-power is not enough"
"Get off the 18-Wheeler and onto a tricycle!"
"The heck with me, what can I do for you?"
"I do not particularly care exactly which "lav" suicide is. I'm not interested in it for other reasons!"

I love Dov and Chesky and all the heiliger chevra on GYE and the Guard, and most of all Hashem.

And I love you too, a lot.

You know, a few years back (but after I started sobriety) I used to kiss my kids and tell them, "I love you so much!...but not as much as Hashem does."

I stopped doing that because I was not sure how they were really taking the message...it might have been creepy or meant to them that I saw a limit to my love, or something like that. Anyhow, the message is still the truth and I can at least say that to you and all the guys here including myself.

Today is one thousand days, which are one hundred and forty two weeks and six days of being sober.

Thank you, Hashem!

Thank you Guard, Dov, Kedusha, 1daat, Chesky, Elyah, and everyone else who was an indispensable help.
