Brett, Thought I'd look in and say hello.I was thinking of you and your plight last night on my one hour drive to work, said a prayer for you and your family. Thought I'd check in and see if you had posted anything. Stay strong and stay the course!

I do have to agree with Ol' Blazer7420 right now, even though there is a TON of support for you on THT, it's probably not in yours or your families best interest right now. It's a great place but ALOT going on all the time.

All the best to ya man!

I am doing very well right now. This is my tenth week of my rehab out of twelve and then I transition to 9 months of one on one counseling to try to close up that hole in me. My counselor has been with me since the moment the intervention took place. She helped with placement, has monitored my progress and truly cares about my outcome. Only I can fix me but with the resources she has made available things certainly seem like they are progressing. The stats for relapse are horrendous, especially for doctors and lawyers because we know everything right up until we keel over dead. The contact I get from fellow THT people has become a daily part of my getting centered. Even the negative posts have positive wishes in them and that I appreciate. I am just concentrating on being the best person I can be and focusing on where my feet are planted. It is easy to get overwhelmed but I want sobriety more than anything. TRUTH

Thanks for posting, I hope it is helping you to get our varied viewpoints. I recently posted about a best friend gone bad and gained some new perspective from the replies. My loss, however, pales in comparison to yours. I have seen addiction up close- ten years ago my administrator was arrested at work, had been phoning in Oxys by the hundreds, and when the pharmacy called she would intercept and deflect. She was busted when a pharmacist who knew me visited me at home, probably saving me from an investigation. I wish you well, even though you are a lawyer lol.

personally, any of the "negative" post, i viewed them as corrective criticism! for some people a constant reminder/truth is beneficial and for others, it only sets them back. only you can decide how they effect your personally and handle it from there!

"The stats for relapse are horrendous, especially for doctors and lawyers because we know everything right up until we keel over dead."

There are a couple of doctors in our group. One relapsed after 18 years but is back with us. the other is doing very well after over 6 years. I have seen lawyers struggle. Most that I know are still with us in varying degrees of serenity. I only tell you this so that you can be aware of what awaits you in the "real world". It's a different world out here. Stay as close to your counselor, sponsor, and group as you can. Fight your fear and pick up that 2 ton phone especially when you don't want to. Ask your sponsor and counselor if they want you to read "The Steps We Took" by Joe McQ. The simplicity of his message really hits home. Praying for your continued success.
Mike

Doing well. I am approaching my final week of treatment and am working on my aftercare plan. Trying to make the transition as stress less as possible. I will give a more detailed update later but as always I appreciate the inquiries.

Surprised this got stuck at $1550, even with the negative comments in this thread. Wonder if he got the truck out or at least stopped the charges from accumulating?

Quick update. As I said before, I am close to finishing my treatment program and I am frankly a little nervous. I had a meeting at the center and the owner, who my wife is friends with, was in attendance. He is also a recovering addict and built this fantastic place full of love and healing. After hearing my share about my concerns regarding graduation he approached me to talk after the meeting. He has been a point of contact for me since the beginning and took part in my initial intervention. He said that I was welcome to extend my program. I reminded him that i was a charity case from the get go and i was just not in a position to come up with money yet. He told me that my performance in the program far exceeded his expectations for a lawyer and that I was an asset to the program and if I wanted to extend I was welcome to. He said the money was not of concern to him. My continued success and contribution to the program makes me an asset and because of that I could stay. YES!!!!! I also have a job interview tomorrow in the recovery field. I fucking love being clean and sober. I type this while looking at my beautiful wife and kids.... life just gets better when I work on my spiritual self and maintain integrity.

Love you guys/gals!!!!

Brett
