    So yeah. A few of you may remember me mentioning a few months ago that I was having a problem with drugs. I checked myself into rehab and now have almost two months totally clean (no alcohol either). I've been at the gym 5-6 times a week and feel better than I ever have.

    I seriously cannot even begin to explain what a life changing experience rehab was. I got to get to the root of nearly all of my problems. I came out with ambition and self-esteem that never existed before.


    So yeah, I'm back, mofo's. I'll put some new pics up soon. The drugs had dropped me down to 127 and I looked like skeletor... but since I've been hitting the gym and eating right again I'm now up to 143 (which is the most I've ever weighed) and I feel fantastic.

    Props to you for getting the help you needed. May things continue to go your way and may you get strength from the feelings of sobriety rather than drugs.

    Best to you icon_smile.gif

    It was about a week of pure hell. Since the withdrawals passed I only have occasional cravings and they're nowhere near bad enough to bring me back into that negativity. Thank you

    And thanks again everyone

    Sometimes I read these forums and what's being debated makes me so frustrated. And every once in a while someone writes something like what mcwclewis does here, and I feel a real human connection. Congrats man and keep up the good work.
