    Congrats, Jim. So you've been drug free for as long as I've been alive... that is impressive. Wonder if AA/NA have a 33 year sobriety chip? If they do, it should be gold plated.

    Well at least I can say I haven't touched an illegal drug in over 10 years. And I've been smoke free for 2. So that's a start. The alcoholism, that's a work in progress. Hoping to kick it some day, but still waiting for a good enough reason to. Life and health just aren't good enough reasons for me right now as I couldn't care much less about either one.

    Glad to hear you have been sober for so long...I hope someday I can live without alcohol too.

    quitting the drugs and booze was really not that hard.. but the marlboros are a whole different story.. do not have the will or the courage to do without the cigarettes.. despite all the words of doc, consulting nurses, dentist adn relatives.. quitting this just seems to be beyond my reach..

    I agree with you there... I mean I never had to give up anything like heroin, but I haven't had much difficulty giving up pot and alcohol and avoiding some of the harder stuff I used to experiment with, but cigarettes... damn. Don't know how something so weak can be so addictive. Nicotine doesn't even get you high, so why is it so hard for the body to give it up? That's always kind of perplexed me.

    I know where you're coming from, I've been trying (without success) to give up smoking for nearly thirty years! :l
