It's been a couple years since I have been into adding friends on here and I see it hasn't gotten any easier! Maybe you have to confirm my request. I got one from you but can't. Not a big deal when I see its worked out ill hit you up.

You need to protect your cheddar, kick the scripts (just weed man, why is that so hard), and find a good woman. And stop feeling so damn sorry for yourself with all them poor person starving over in Somalia.

Sorry excuse for a degenerate if you ask me

I drank 4 cans of beer during the football game last night and I puked 2 hours after my 4th beer was gone. Normal? I'd pretty much call myself a box. How the darn does your liver handle all that garbage? Fellas want to come over for beer and pizza all the time and I'm the only Melvin who's drinking a Coca Cola with my Pizza.....tastes good. Skoal feels even better on a full belly.....relaxing.  In any event, best wishes to you

Dropping the perc 30s should be your top priority IMO.

I was a very heavy drinker for 20 years.  I don't miss the booze but I will often dream that I have pockets filled with xanaxes and percs.  I haven't taken pills in years but the little guy are SOOO addictive that I still dream about taking them, weird.
