Thanks SM. It helps to remind us the reality of drug/alcohol addiction. The reality is that most of us never make it to any kind of meaningful recovery. I have buried a lot of friends before recovery and in recovery I have seen a lot go out and not make it back. Its hard espeically for the young and bulletproof to realize how powerful addiciton really is.
I would be honored to sport a squirrell shirt during the festival. If somebody organizes I am on board. I think it would be a good thing to be able to recognize other \"friendlies\" during the festival. Maybe we can remember him and do some good. I would avoid preaching at people though. Recovery is meant to be a program of attraction. If people are not ready to stop using, no amount of talking will help. I would stand ready to help anybody who wants help though.
I'm just here for the stir fry
