Sober Selfies #18 (shirts required, please review rules)

Day 37
New set of stacking rings in Gold and turquoise
New hat band for my cowboy hat.
Didn’t actually change the hold hat band because it’s connected to the stampede strings,and I didn’t order new ones. So just put it on top of the old one.

Western inspired cardigan from New Yorker
Cowboy hat and accessories from Temu.

Thank you Honeybee.
Getting ready for spring/summer at the Western theme park we’re going to visit.

We was there once last year, the boys absolutely loved it, we all got season passes for Christmas and it’s been all Western themed over here since. :blush:

Good afternoon beautiful. I am grateful for your presence here. For your fashionable shares. For your continued Sobriety. Sending you Metta.

Metta is a term that refers to one of the 10 perfections of Buddhism and is the first of the four Buddhist virtues, or “immeasurables.” It can be translated as “benevolence,” “loving,” “friendship” or “kindness.”

Thank you, I’m grateful for being here with all of you. And always grateful for all of your posts.

I actually know quite a bit about religion, no matter if it’s Christianity (No s**t Sherlock, I’m Pentecostal raised) voodoo, buddhism or anything else.
So I was familiar with the Metta term. In Swedish we say it means something like found friendly kindness. :smiling_face:

Congrats homie!!! Really proud of you, I wanna have that many clean days in the future :slight_smile:

I couldn’t imagine how fucked it must’ve been to get away from The Big H. I’ve never tried an opiate before, but I have this friend who tried an oxy before and I remember this guy would keep saying “oxys oxys oxys I want oxys” for like a month straight even though he only did it like twice before. From my understanding, oxy is like half the strength of heroin or something like that.

But yeah dude im glad you’re doing good now, keep it up :saluting_face: :slight_smile:

I had it quite lucky compared to most. I was spaced out for weeks. The withdrawal itself made me feel physically sick but I did not have it anywhere near as bad as some stories I’ve heard, I consider myself very lucky for that. Mentally it was like coming back from stupid. I remember being really confused a lot; sitting in front of a laptop for the first time in years was quite strange and I itched all over. The paranoia fucking sucked aswell. But thankfully I’m 6.5 years away from the last one but I could be 1 hour away if I don’t look after it :slight_smile:

@DresdenLaPage I think the fact that you wrote 6.5 and then 5 and half disturbed me more than it should :sweat_smile:

Congratulations on both numbers! Stay strong :blue_heart:

Took a small break from TS, but a good friend messaged me and reminded me of all the good people here. 95 days sober today, spending time with my kids and myself, but making the most of my time!

This is from a fly fishing trip I took with my son yesterday up to the Green River in Wyoming. We didn’t catch a lot of fish, but caught a few big, fat rainbows! Great time with my son!
