You're very wise. I've used all of the social media platforms. Facebook was the last to go. As a recovering addict (I've been clean for over 6 years) I know the signs of addiction. Digital addiction is very real. These forums and other forums are my form of social media today.

Not so much anymore, I'm afraid.

I haven't drank for 25 years, 26 this coming April, so I do still have that going for me. The longer you go without drinking the less a part of your like it becomes and the easier it gets. Six years is a long time and an accomplishment you can be proud of.

I don't know anyone who uses a computer besides my Sister, and she just knows the program she uses. When she gets off work she doesn't want to touch one and admits she couldn't follow my tutorial.

They all have smartphones and Facebook going constantly. Everybody wants to know what they had for breakfast. I wouldn't have Internet if I only had a phone, and I've never had a smartphone.

The only guy I've ever met personally who actually knew what FreeBSD was, turned out to live in the same building as me. Then died of an overdose in his apartment a few months ago before we really had time to talk. He had a degree in Computer Science - Communications and had drank it away by then.

You and I are doing pretty good when you think about it.

Thanks for sharing your story! Thank you for the kind words, I appreciate that! It's wonderful to meet someone with long term clean time! My life was a write off when I was in active addiction. These days I sponsor several men and I try to carry the message in NA. I cleaned up May 23, 2015.
