    Exclamation What to say...

    I've been through the wringer these last few months.

    I finally told my family about 4 year old son, long story...
    I ended up on the verge of alcohol poisoning and I am now in A.A., and that's a fun ride...
    My marriage almost fell apart because of alcohol...
    I have been having lots of car trouble...again...*sigh*...including a nasty accident, and lots of repairs...$$$=Pain in the butt.
    I've been dealing with a lot of stubbornness at work...

    I am so sorry that my presence has been nonexistent for so long guys, but life turned into...well, a shit-storm to put it bluntly. I just wanted to let you guys know why I haven't been on, and that I am going to try to be on more often.

    I really miss being here all the time...

    I wish you the best and hope things work out.

    This seems to be a sanctuary of sorts where we can get away for a little bit and discuss our passion for the leaf.

    Welcome back.

    Man, I lost my career and most all of my friends about 8 years ago over crap like this. I finally realized I was the problem, not everyone else. Only you can get things straight. You just have to work hard at it. Keep up with the meetings and don't be afraid to call a sponsor if you need to. Life goes on with or without you, you have to move on with it. Best of luck brother. I'll send up a prayer for you.

    Hope things start to get better soon...its not impossible and finding the right people are the start. It takes time to rebuild...you didn't get into this jam in a few days and it's going to take awhile to get out. Staying involved and hanging out with the right people will get you thru this..get a good sponser and put your fingers in their belt loop and hang on. Good luck.

    I too was wondering what you were up to Russ. Wish it was something different like jetsetting about the world but hey, you are here and it looks like you took a giant leap in the right direction.
