No I haven't. But I've definitely thought about it before. I'm just not sure I could stomach being away from my family and my standard routine for so long.

No I haven't but I have heard such great things. Many of my friends have done it. They highly recommend it.

I think it's one of the coolest opportunities in healthcare, but I've never been able to bring myself to commit. Are you considering it?

Posting for anyone who may be just “looking at this page” or “sick and tired of being sick and tired”. I found a life through sobriety. It may not be perfect but I no longer HAVE to drink. I never thought it was possible. I wanted to state here that it is. It gets easier as time goes but if you’re fed up know that for many years I HAD to drink. I could not function without it. 24 hours was a miracle to me. If you’re like me you’re reading this and thinking “Bullshit!”. Just try 24 at a time.
