Hello

I'm dave. I'm a salf-injuring addict/alcoholic.
I was an active member of this community three or four years ago. I made many friends here, and helped and was helped by many. i'm sure some old-timers may remember me.
I wanted to post now to say that my life is wonderful. and that anyone else who struggles with this addiction can leave it behind and start anew.
s/i is not the only addiction i've had to overcome. I'm working through problems with drinking, smoking pot, and playing world of warcraft (YES that game is mad addictive, dont underestimate it.) I dont consider myself cured, but i'm clean, sober, and happy.
i discovered that all addictions are almost the same. when enough isnt enough, we do more, be it cutting, drinking, sex, whatever. the last time i drank, i ran out before i was satisfied with my drunk, so i cut. everything i did in my addictions, i did to an extreme.
the point is this: the thing that helps me stay clean is connection to others who share my problems. if i can help someone get another day of clean time, it's more of a blessing to me than almost anything. i'm in contact with other alcoholics and addicts, but it's time i start giving to those who suffer from my first addiction. and since this group is the first place i truly started to connect, and seek recovery from it, i choose here.
i am here. to talk, to listen, to do what i can. anytime you need me, i'm here if i can possibly be.

phone: more than happy to give it out, but contact me privately for it.
