    Default Health: HOV. Heirarchy Of Values.

    Been abstinent from drugs + alcohol for 2 yrs. 8 months. My success is my blood results. Cholesterol,glucose, and blood pressure numbers came in a very good range. I lost over 50 lbs. and walk an hour most days. Eat healthy and in general just have a whole new outlook on life. Sometimes change is very hard. But working the Smart tools + persistance really transformed my way of thinking. Along with many other benefits. If your new to recovery, stick with it no matter what. Long-term it will be well worth it. Peace.

    Komoto, congrats on your successful abstinence and all the other successes you have achieved because of it. You are definitely right...The long-term benefits DO outweigh the short-term discomforts!

    Here's to many, many more years of success!!!
