jack - makes plenty of sense. You definitely made the right choice. again, my hat's off to you for sobering up. It's a task that some people spend the rest of their life trying to do - i didn't go thru it myself, but I read a lot of William Burroughs' writings about addiction, as well as other authors.
Luckily I read them when I was young, before I was put in the position to decide whether or not to use, and after reading about the horrors of breaking the habit once you start, i decided to stay away from the hard drugs.
Congrats on cleaning up, and welcome again.
