    There was a time I would do anything to get a buzz, I mean anything... Thinking back, it's a good thing I was never anywhere I had to drive to get back home. My Club does alot of charity runs. But it seems like such a waiste when one of the stops is at a bar. The group I ride with is mainly young and the rule is no drugs or booze. I'm more than happy with that. Outside of a beer or a glass of wine w/dinner I say I don't drink. Maybee in a year I have about 10 drinks. I could never drink when out with one of my bikes, surely never on the Ninja. So I guess, I could say I've been sober for about 28 yrs.

    Glad to see more of us in the life that find it more memorable sober. LOL or at least I can now claim to remember, a lil slippage due to age, or braincells gone.

    One good point to consider, we attract some young folks before they sometimes visit places some of us have or lose to the damned disease completly. Buried a few "kids" just recently who had to try again. I am thinking of a local group that is sober, and gets young folks into hobbies like Bikes or car building and other healthy choices.

    IF anyone would like to be a aprt of making a sober pup club, Pidgeons, babies, newcomers< I and a few friends in Seattle area are very ready. May even try to build a real shop/club house/ sober club. It could be a model for helpin young and old folks alike, Hobbies added to sober freinds and the programs give balance. I am betting there could be some $$ avilable to get started. I will commit to being avialable, in any way I can.

    Started out of the woods in '69, and find every day clean and sober a blessing, now to add the woman who wants to share the adventure.

    Peace, and if anyone needs a friend to talk things over with, I am available 24/7/365. Drop me an email, I will be happy to send my number.Got to pass it on to keep it!

    You never have to take another drug or drink again, if you choose.

    Hope to see some fellowship'in goin on in Laconia next week... I'll be there.



    This is so amazing! I have 5 years clean and I am so grateful today for all the people in my life. My friends are only recovering addicts today. I tried to stay in touch with ol'friends and it is not a suggestion of N.A. I follow the program to the best of my ability today and I stay teachable. I try to always have an open mind all the time...... God Bless the miracles on this site of whom had shared here. We are allllll miracles just for today! *kisses* Lady Rose

    I ALWAYS ride sober. I do party when I get the chance, but I will never ride, drive, use power tools, or shoot weapons while anything other then completely sober.
