Many years ago,..I lost "everything that mattered". I then spent 12 years in a self punishment cycle that included too much drug use and no concern for my own well being.

A long story will be cut short to one day ,finally, looking myself in a mirror and seeing a glint of the warrior that I used to be, looking back at me for the first time in a decade. He said. "Now, you are just being stupid"

  When I found this MMATycoon, I was trying to sober up.  My mind was a constant static of chaotic energy.

I am now 3 months away from my 4 year mark in the game.

I am incredibly sober (if you don't count weed =) just being honest). 

I am now back in my career field, Entertainment rigging- concerts and I am, again, one of the premium guys in the Oregon and Washington areas.

 

My closest friends are pleasantly shocked, because , I was told  "not many can come-back from where I was in my mind, heart and soul."

 

I am currently ranked 33 of 21518 (0.15%) and IF this is the closest that I ever get to this peak, I wanted to shout it out now, that You have NO idea just how much this environment was the therapy of mind that helped me come back from that cliff that I was on.  Thank you for that

Good luck and keep your head up!

Congrats! I am glad to hear you are doing well. Not many get a second chance! 

 

You said you set up for concerts, do you do a specific kind of music or just whoever hires? My family and I go to concerts a lot, that would probably be a fun job. We are going to see Pop Evil again in March I think, cant remember the date for sure, they are playing in Kansas City at a new place The Truman, it is pretty good. We went and seen Nothing More there in October.

I'm happy for you. Good job staying sobre man. 

I quit weed like a year and 2 months ago and I only drink once in a while. I'm pretty sobre and I feel a lot better without weed fogging my head up. This site also has helped me in many ways like to motivate me to work out among other things.

Great to hear you doing well in game and IRL. Keep it up!
