4 and a half months without alcohol
5 months without marijuana
9 months and 1 week free from hard drugs

To be honest i don't even think about drugs anymore, which is weird because they were such a big part of my life for quite a while.


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

186 days without heroin or anyother opiate, except the few painkillers i have had here and there in the past 2 months.
I really think I am going to be able to stay clean this time. It sucks, and there will always be a hole in my heart, but im no longer broke.

Well, I've been sober all my life but I have helped someone stop drinking/smoking.
The last time he drank was about 8 months ago. The last time he smoked pot was 7 months ago.


I'm a house of cards in a hurricane.
A reckless ride in the pouring rain.
He cuts me and the pain is all I wanna feel.
He'll dance away just like a child.
He drives me crazy, drives me wild.
But I'm helpless when he smiles.


He broke my heart when I broke his xbox360

I've been sober and everything, all my life And am keeping it that way (Straightedge).

I'm helping a friend though, and I haven't talked to him lately because I haven't seen him, but the last time I checked, he was at 1 month

i noticed that my eyes and hair werent the same
i asked my parents if i was ok
they said your more beautiful
and thats the way

"id rather be hated for who i am than loved for who im not"

why is everything with you soo complicated,
why do you make it hard to love you oh i hate it,
cuz if you really wanna be alone,
i throw my hands up cuz baby i tried,

Hey (:

Yesterday I looked at this thread and I felt upset with myself because I didn't think I could put any sort of number down that would have been longer than a few minutes, hours, or days depending on the substance. I forgot that I had made it 21 days without abusing cocaine which may not seem like a big accomplishment to most but it is a big deal for me. I hope everyone is able to keep up with their good work. If you are ever feeling week PM me and I will be there for you as best I can. Take care and stay strong everyone.

Lots and lots of love<3 Mimi
