Morn' All,Twenty years ago to-day I walked into the halls of recovery, broken by my alcoholism, I lost Family, job, house, my ex got the inside, I got the outside. All that has changed for me because I've changed so very much, I have a wonderful new life, and I am loved and happyODAT, I write this because I care about so many of you especially, you old "Knoxer's", Thank You because its not about me any longer It's all about you, Your Friend, Ken tongue

A happy 20th birthday,hope you get a cake.We are the people who get to live two lives in one lifetime.That first year was exciting and frightening and I never want to relive it again.Pipe smoking is a great thing,it encourages contemplation and serenity
two things important to us especially. sunny

Brother Ken, I thank my Lord that you took action that preserved your life. That you have taken action to aid others in the same situation you once knew is a Virtue and a blessing to your fellow man.
Thank you.

Hopefully if anyone reading this thread is struggling in the battle of addiction,whether it be alcohol,drugs,pornography, etc etc they will take your story as an inspiration to keep up the fight. You are not only a Pipe Hero but you are a Life Hero...
Your Bro, PB

Ken, your posts are so invariably good-humored and always a pleasure to read.

It takes quite a bit of soul-strength to turn around a major addiction; you should be proud!

Just saw this today (I don't get to check the board as much as I'd like lately) and want to offer my congratulations!

I always look forward to reading your posts (as I did on the old Knox board).

Keep up the good work!
