What does one say after reading such a post? It is such a flawless account of one man's wisdom, humanity and humility. and a beautiful portrayal of an addict's winning struggle over his addiction.

Hey, isn't that the Haiku guy? That artist, poet fella? You know-----O'Bob., I think his name is.
Thanks to whomever pointed out this post to those of us who had not seen it.,

What a great thread. i don't know how I stumbled upon it but i'm glad I did. It is nice to see a more seasoned freedomite go through this in the beginning too. It is exactly the thought process that i go through with the rational mind. thanks oBob. As they say in So.Cal...

Dear Riverdog,
Your posts are priceless. "Peering through the fog" is not only apt for most of us but sure to make us smile. And smiling, for me, is a large part of hanging on. You have your own kind of clarity. A well rounded forum this is--------

Happy to be here, Lilac.

It's safe, reliable, effective. It's O'Bob's Trump Card post.

Can't believe I haven't seen this post before (personally, I think it should be on the "Advice 4 Newbies" page). And it makes me want to cry too Lilac...I think it is the fact that I can actually go back in time and see that my "pillars of strength" oldbies were once where I am...at the bottom of that endless mountain, struggling towards the summit one day at a time. Plus OBob is so wise and comforting...sometimes all I need to do is think of his trademark coffee cup and I remember that this IS doable. Thanks for all of the wisdom you share Bob...it is truly priceless.

Sincerely,

OBob, what a wonderful thread to bring up for any of us quitters who may be struggling today. You have the amazing gift to be able to say what other people are thinking, but cannot express well enough for others to understand. This is in no way meant to insult you or anyone reading this ... there you are, I am obviously one of those who cannot get my words across clearly enough.
Anyway, bingo! Image
