Phew, no responsibilities for me. Now I can go back and wish Ashy the best without a duty to procrastinate!
I appoint justanothershyguy as the bringer of enormous cakes.
And fluids. Preferably sports drinks. Sex with a gargoyle can be...dehydrating.

^Even if he fell off the wagon, I would still think very highly of him. Fate has thrown him quite a few curveballs, and one recent incident here on JUB involving Waffles may have chipped away at his self-confidence, which doesn't help a man in recovery.
Overcoming an addiction involves taking a series of steps, in a process that often takes a great deal of time. I look up to him as a kind of role model because he gave me inspiration in overcoming one of my own problems.
Ashy, if you read these words, please know that we miss you, no matter what has happened.

We haven't found him yet? I wish you well Ashy where ever you are.
Wow, it took me less than half an hour to find it - I found my notes from 2010 with his phone number on it. No guarantee that it still works. I'll have to try. Right now the phone isn't working??? (MY phone, that is - it's been down for at least seven hours.) I hope he can come out as the victor in all of this.
I also should check and see if he is still doing his dubstep radio show.
As near as I can tell, he seems relatively fine in FaceBook.
Maybe he just needed time away from JUB ?
He never responded to my phone message or FB post. But if he seems OK on FB, then I won't pursue it.
Good, I'm glad to hear he is ok. I hope he comes back soon!
Same, as long as he knows he's thought of, I am content.
Stop eating that poutine and get your ass back on JUB now!
Christ, you guys, I didn't die, I just relapsed. It's like a fucking funeral service in here. :lol: Thanks for the kind words, though. (*8*)
There were many different factors at play that helped me decide to start using again. I'm currently sitting at 3 days clean, though. The reason for my absence is that I didn't feel right posting on JUB while fucked up; I thought it would be disrespectful.
I apologise to everyone who messaged me on Facebook; I wasn't really in a position to reply or acknowledge your support; I was smoking pretty heavily and I didn't have the mental faculties to hammer out a response.
Definitely, WELCOME BACK! And, GOOD ON YOU for going clean again. Relapses can happen, but you're trying your best not to make it permanent, and that's what counts.
You were facing some stress over the Christmas holidays, which should now be passed, as well.
As you can see, from this thread, you have people out here who care about you. Many.
If I were to say that I hadn't overeaten for three weeks, I think it would tend to make me hyperconscious of how much I love chocolate, or steak, or zombie's brains, or whatever.
Maybe it's just good to think to yourself, I've been clean and I am clean. That's really the one-day-at-a-time vantage point. Ultimately, you wouldn't even say that, as you would be focused elsewhere.
According to NA, each day clean is something worth celebrating. When I first entered the program a year and a half ago, it gave me a lot of pleasure to wake up in the morning and my first thought to be, "I'm now X days clean". At the outset, it's important to think about how far you've come, even if that means you haven't picked up the pipe for just two days.
Hardly like a Funeral Sparkles, there was nowhere near enough drag queens in feather boa's for it to have been like your funeral.
Welcome back to the nut farm.
Welcome back Ashy! :wave:
As one who has coped with various addictions at various times, I appreciate what you're going thru. It's rough.
BE STRONG AND ENDURE.
Hi Dante, glad you're ok and we were all concerned. You have many friends here :-)
Welcome back Ashy :kiss:
Huzzah Ashy's back!
And of course it was somber, what do you think the mood is like when a shark is thinking about finding a particular person? It's rather ominous. ;)
Glad you're back, Ashy. I wish you well in your recovery. (*8*)
So are you Ashy, or Ashria? :)
Neither. He's Molten Something-Or-Other.
Or Andreus. :p
Since the rescue mission was a success, I would like to officially and honorably discharge everyone drafted into service for the glorious cause of rescuing AshyPhoenix. Thank you all for your service and don't forget to drink your ovaltine.
