Time to introduce myself I guess. It might as well be to people who understand me best. I'm clean and sober for 20 almost 21 years now. O'yea I rode a few (ok, many) times while drunk ..... whew ! glad I made it! Back then I used to ride on off road thumpers .... I could fall off a wheely, pick up the bike and make it to the next bar before too much blood was lost. A great way to be the center of attention though. Good for some free drinks too. Now I ride with sober friends and a few who won't drink when they ride. I'm glad I found BK. I need all the support I can get to get me through the Wisconsin winter. Sometimes it seems it's harder to put the bikes up for the winter than it was to put down that bottle.

Hey family,

I just got back from a 3 day convention, up by Ellenville.NA.... It was great. our areas first ever.Got 30 hours without a cigareette. Had to take a puff off a cigar a few times. And the urge to light up a cigarrette is medium strong at the moment, but I won't . I really really want quit more than smoke.
Comfy, there were all the guys from laconia at it. Onlt two on bikes....they all said hi 2 you!

Thanks TreeCutter and sorry I missed your original post ... I'm gettin there one day at a time. Been altering my chemistry since 14 and not easy breaking the trend;...always a quiet closet Buzz, so not too many even knew.
Long rides and nature seem to be the antidote for me . . . Take care.

I'm with you on that Lelia--when we compromise something just to remain in existance we compromise our own being

i've not had the same battle as you have but still have had a battle and no matter what our battles are we are always or should be working on SELF and i would say from your posts you are on the positive side

may the wind always be with you

Clean and sober for 12 years. I thank God for getting me through the previous drunken 29 years. These sober 12 have been the best years of my life. Ride safe, brothers and sisters!!

Pretty much all my riding buddies are sober. A few AMC and couple of 1%ers... but C&S. Seems like the only drunks I ride with anymore are family.

Sorry tohear about Sam-
I don't think anyone will ever understand it....It is what it is....
I'm just glad I still have a choice and I am very greatful for that..
I never understood it untill this time around when I heard that I never had to be a victim...I am not a victim today...I am responsible for my own happiness..As long as i can keep that in the front of my mind I am O.K.
Now since I am responsible for my own happines....I think I will do deliveries on my bike!
That'll make me happy!
