    Sup my nizzle?!

    I know you're busy with life stuff ... been there ... still there, lol. Wanted to hop on by anyhow just to say "hey."

    Hope mailman college went well and they actually make those shorts in your size. Could end up with some weird Daisy Duke / Banana Hammock type combo ... {{ shudders at the thought }} ... the mail will never be the same again!

    Hope all is well.

    Heyoo!!!!!! It's been a while since I've been around. To everyone. I am sorry for that. I need to find more time in the day to get to this amazing place regularly.

    Work has been good. Busy but good. It is getting easier and more familiar with time. Just putting in a lot of hours. But it keeps me busy and I like money so everything is all good! If I'm doing my math correctly and I usually am. Lol. Tomorrow will be 17 months clean! Been quite a ride but I am very happy with where I am.

    But thats not the good news I wish to share. So I finally pulled the trigger and proposed to K. And she accepted! We haven't set a date yet but we are ballparking sometime in March of 2020. Just have a lot of work to do for the big day before that. I never knew how much >>>> went in to planning a wedding. Good lord there is so much to get ready. I know we will get it done though. We have been through so much, this is just one more thing we will tackle together.

    That's about all I got. Gotta help the kid with some math.

    Hope everyone has a great day!

    Rudy, it would be best to start your own thread so you can get personalized help and support. You mentioned that you were "eating" (swallowing) your suboxone? You weren't actually doing this versus sublingual ROA? How long were you on suboxone all together? Like I mentioned earlier, please start your very own thread and give us your complete and detailed history with the suboxone? Take care... God bless us all!

    Well here we go. Today marks 20 months clean. Didn't think I'd make it this far when I started this thread. Everything in my life is amazing right now. Busy as hell but I wouldn't have it any other way. Keeps me occupied.

    No symptoms at all it seems, good days and the occasional bad day that life sprinkles in just for fun on occasion. But the thought of numbing myself just doesn't seem to exist anymore. Learning to deal with life on life's terms and still taking things one day at a time. I know that I am an addict and I will always be an addict, but it doesn't have to define me or run my life today or any other day. Today I have a choice, and I choose not to pick up and use. Things are so much better than I could have ever hoped for. Sleep continues to avoid me most nights. Not insomnia, I have no trouble falling asleep. But staying that way through the night seems like an impossible challenge. Most nights I wake up 2-3 times throughout the night. But I manage, and it seems to be my new normal.

    Wedding plans continue to move forward. We have a venue reserved and are working on guest lists, dj, photographer, and what seems like a never ending money pit. All I see is $$$$. But K is so worth it, and all I want to do is make her happy. She deserves this. Why she chose me is still beyond me, but I am the luckiest guy in the world.

    So thats about it from here. Special shoutout to all those who have helped me through this process. Lvg, Cat, Randy, CC, Ryka/Leah or whatever you're calling yourself now, Somo, Draven, uncleleo, 10, Tim, Max, Froggy, Ricky and anyone else that I'm forgetting I am truly sorry. You have all helped me so much and I love you all!!! Thank you all for being a part of my journey.

    Hope everyone has an amazing night!!

    Default Paging Dr. Beef...

    I am expecting...no...I am demanding a two year update in a few days. Most importantly, I need to know the following things:

    - What type of cake?
    - How much cake?
    - What type of frosting?
    - What type of filling?
    - Are you willing to share any of the cake?
    - Who will be preparing the cake?
    - Will you consider buying a large sword to cut the cake?

    For those of you who don’t already know, Beef changed the trajectory of my life. I know that sounds far-fetched, but it really was his story that inspired me to finally take the jump.

    And now I’m nearly 21 months clean...and each day after I’ll have a choice to make.

    Thank you, Beef, for helping me make the right choice today.

    Ah crud...just realized that I’ll have a wait another month for that update. For some reason I had acute brain failure and thought it was September.

    Thanks Zebra and 10. Much appreciated.

    Ok sports fans. Time for me to drop a 2 year update!!!! Yes that's right 704 days ago I made the jump from subs not knowing what was in store for me. The fear of the unknown and the toxic thinking that I would never be able to function without something to numb me had kept me in my addiction for the better part of 10 years.

    It was not pretty for the first 2 months. If you want some of the details simply scroll back to page one of this thread. I whined and tried to put on a brave face but it was not fun. I was sick, lethargic, moody, tired, (mostly from horrible insomnia) bad tummy issues, chills that were unrelenting, depression, and all the good stuff that comes with it. But slowly I started to emerge out of the abyss a better version of myself. I can not even begin to describe how wonderful it is to have gone through that. I thank all of you who have encouraged me during my time here. You all have truly helped me take control of my life again. And for that I will be forever in your debt. For anyone who stumbles on this I would just like to reiterate what I'm sure you have read several times before and wondered if it really is true.

    Yes, life clean is possible!!! It is worth it!!!! You are worth it!! And you CAN do it!!! Believe in yourself and take control!!!!

    Now on to the good stuff.

    10; There will be cake. Oh yes there will be cake.

    K decided to bring back a classic from my childhood. Are you ready. So simple but O so amazing!!

    Angel food cake, chocolate frosting, and crushed up heath bars on top and in between the 2 layers. A classic, and one of my all time favorites. Wash it down with a gallon of milk and you will not be sorry.

    And it will be sliced with my wusthof carving knife. Like a cake ninja.

    I am willing to share a sliver of said cake however I cannot guarantee the duration of it's life. I do believe it will be killed at some point tomorrow.

    Gotta be coming up on your 2 year mark as well. So proud of you my friend!!!! I will be eagerly awaiting your update as well.

    Nothing new to report. No issues, no PAWS, sleep is my only lingering effect. But at this point I hesitate to even call it a symptom. I mean how long are we allowed to blame the junk at this point. I just roll with it and take sleep as it comes. Some nights are good, some not so much. But I always wake up with a smile because I have a supportive family, a loving fiancee, and I will always remember what it was like on the other side of the fence. These things are what drives me to never go back. Just for today I am clean. And I never have to use again!!!

    Thanks again to all who took the time to read this ridiculously long winded look into the life of Beef.

    Have a great night everyone!!!
    Beef

    Yeah.... so i just realized I'm a bit of a moron. Apparently there are 365 days in a year. Not really sure where I got 352 from??? It's been a long few weeks of work. Brain is a bit slow. So I guess that makes it about 730 days.

    (Shut up lvg!!! I can hear you laughing)

    Default Beef the Mathematician

    352, huh? I’m assuming you just got a little too excited and starting mixing up your days in the year with the weeks in the year. It’s a simple mistake, Beef. Ask Lucille...she makes mistakes too. My mailbox says hello.

    Dude...for serious though...TWO YEARS!?!?! That’s crazy! It’s easy to remember a time when you probably thought you couldn’t make it two days without Suboxone...let alone TWO STINKIN’ YEARS!

    I’m so happy for you. I really hope you understand that when I read your post today, I was smiling ear-to-ear. Nothing but love for you brother. You’ve earned it. You deserve it. Eat that gosh darned cake.

    Dude. We are doing something that we once thought was impossible. Think about it...what else are we capable of?

    In my opinion, we are invincible. I mean, don’t go lay on railroad tracks or anything like that. But you get the picture.

    Invincible for today.
