    Today is a great day to be an American. I have been on this site many times since I first realized I was addicted to those little damn pills. Today is the 1st day of my official status in this little club!! Quick little rundown of my past. 3 1/2 years ago, moved from Minneapolis to San Diego, thought I’d try something new. 6 months in, met a friend who introduced me to those wonderful little bastards. Fast forward, realized there was a problem, who would have thought. Quit for 1st time in November. A month later I thought I could “control it” (yeah right!), and started up again. March 1st, moved back to Minneapolis with a beautiful California bride 😉 As of April 29th, 2011 I am clean and doing great. I know how painful a ride it’s been for most, but I can honestly say I feel great, at about 87.8%. Been hitting the gym (back on my Captain America Regimine), playing softball with the boys and most importantly, I have the love of my life interested in me again. I know we all have our own ways of doing this, for me, it was looking in the mirror and saying “enough is enough, I’m better than this.” I know this part of my life will always be in the back of my mind, but I WILL NOT GO BACK TO IT, that’s the promise I’ve made to myself. Each step I take, each minute that passes, I just ask myself “What would Captain America do?” 😉

    “Doesn’t matter what the press says. Doesn’t matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn’t matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world – “No, you move.” – Captain America
