    Default Happy Thanksgiving!

    I just wanted to wish everyone who comes on here a Happy Thanksgiving... I also want you all to know that I am thankful to have ended up here... Yeah, kind of strange to think that, but think about it this way.. When we come on here, we are at the end of our rope... Searching, hoping, looking for something. Finding this forum could very well have saved my life, but more importantly it was the people and the time they took to give me a kind word, a kick in the butt, or an affermation when I needed it that helped me "get it" and find myself again... So, although right now might not be the best time for those starting out on their journey, be rest assured that if you want it... This place flat out works... it did for me 3 1/2 years ago and if I can do it, I feel there in not a person out there that can't achieve what I did... A new start, a new begining and a new life.. Happy Thanksgiving!! All my best, Reid

    I second that...it's amazing what people, addicts or not, are capable of. Everyone here who has lent me some strength, compassion, given me a laugh or w/e has been SO valuable to me over these last 3 weeks (and even back in March when I was here for a week) I can't express it. I too feel like my life has been saved in one way or another in part due to the support and communication on this board. Thank you guys! Be safe this week(end) and enjoy the sales on Friday!

    I got clean because of people like you CA, and so many members of this forum. I am SO glad to have been brought here by circumstance! I hope everyone has a great holiday!

    Every so often, my sponsor has me write a Gratitude List.
    I won't bore people w/ my personal list of thanks, but to those still stuggling, know this:
    I am thankful that I am clean.
    I am thankful that the obsession to use has been lifted.
    I am thankful that I have peace of mind, body, and spirit.
    I am thankful that I am clean, and not withdrawing or chasing my next oxy on Thanksgiving.
    I am thankful that I will actually be there; that I won't be so high - I will actually rememeber Thanksgiving Day, 2012.

    These are just a few things that recovery - this forum and NA - has given me in the new way of life I have chosen to lead.
    It is available to anyone - you just need to surrender the fight already - and get on w/ the process of recovery.
    Best of luck, in my prayers.

    Kindest Regards and Happy Thanksgiving family.

    Nice to see this. I also add my THANKS for my health and glad to join in on the thanksgiving festivities. There is only two of us here and in the past, there have been so many medical problems, it was hard to concentrate on something positive but there is light at the end of the tunnel and this is the first time in years we are actually going to make a turkey with a nice dinner, take some nice legal drugs and get a decent nights sleep. Making the best of it, so why not? Enjoy and happy turkey day to all!!!!

    you're in a better place.
    physically. mentally. spiritually.
    and life keeps happening.
    and it gets better..
    i can only speak for myself.
    but like you said reid..
    lol if i can do it..
    jeez. anyone can.

    i can honestly say that i am grateful to be where i am today.
    don't know if i could have ever said that before, and actually meant it.
    it's awesome.

    happy thanksgiving!

    Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I'm thankful for this forum, even though i haven't been checking in as often...I am doing well, clean since April 30 and AMAZINGLY I do not miss my DOC one bit! Even though this year it's been a much slower process getting out my Christmas decorations, I still shudder thinking of last year, and the false energy I got from popping a pill. Stay well, everyone, and enjoy the season!
