    Adderall, xanax, opiates, alcohol...went to rehab for 21 in October. Clean and sober now. Sometimes there is state funding for rehab. It was horrible to see people in rehab that knew they weren't ready but didn't have the funds to stay longer. We are here to help bro. Ask anything you want.

    Thanks my man. I've replaced all that negativity with this lifestyle. I've never met more positive motivated guys in my life. I love every one of you douche bags.

    i was given state funding for my recovery too. they paid for outpatient counseling for a year or two. now almost 7 years later i'm a drug counselor myself, so i'm kind of paying it back or paying it forward, so to speak.

    That's awesome! I really was thinking about doing that. When I was in rehab some of the kids would mistake me for a counselor. Lol

    it's difficult and the pay is not that great, but it's very rewarding when you see someone start to turn things around and do well.

    Yes, I don't mind speaking about it much openly if anyone asks. I'm not ashamed of it and I'm proud to have fought through it. If anyone thinks less of me, that's fine. That's on them, I'm stronger as a person coming out the other side. I was addicted to opiates and cocaine for a long time. Started off just for fun. But one day you sit there with a needle in one hand and a loaded gun in another wondering which is better to stop the pain. I got help and am lucky to have people in my life that stuck by me. Even after many relapses. I've been sober for more than a year now. I got an idea one day to finally get back in a gym. My friend was a former Muay Thai champion and encouraged me to come work out. I got hooked after a few times. And decided I was going to train myself to get to Thailand and train and take my first fight. I did and now I'm 1-1 in record. It's been a hard couples of days though, hearing a close friend overdosed a couple of days ago. Last night was the first night I laid in bed sleepless craving. I haven't had that horrible feeling of wanting to use again and the shame that comes with it. Along with stress with my job situation. I trying my best right now to be right with what I can control.

    Sorry folks but I will never understand how people can enjoy being hungover .... One glass of any alcoholic beverage whatsoever is enough to make me drunk. My body hates alcohol.

    I'm looking for something to do when I retire and my physiotherapist suggested being a buddy (helping drug addicts and alcoholics) but I'm not sure I can do it. I do admire you guys who went to rehab and have been clean ever since. Congrats.

    I hated it. But it was the most relaxing time of my life. No phone. You actually just talked and connected with people and did things together. No worries from the outside world for a short time. But the sad thing is, the person sitting next to you is most likely going to go to jail, relapse, back to rehab or die. Lost many people i went to rehab with that were really good people, some extremely intelligent even but just had this demon.
