Hi all,

Two months ago I hit a very rough part of my life. Unemployed for 1.5 years and screwed on Clonazepam. it even got worse when I was mixing alcohol with it. I made a post on here awhile back when things were really screwed up. I finally kicked the Med to the curb and did so the proper way. No withdrawals at all anymore.
I mean really, i was a complete zombie and unable to work. I've been alcohol free for 2 months and things are a lot brighter! I'm going back to driving truck for TMC Trans. I'm really excited on this new venture and I was a trucker before all those meds got fed to me. It's a passion of mine that won't go away and nobody can tell me no.

So no matter what or how bad things get, There is always hope at the end of the tunnel. NEVER give up. Even though I only have $100 to my name, I'm gonna make things work.

And if ANYONE on here needs help or some guidance I would be happy to give you some advice, And among ALL the great members here. Drop me a PM or you can even call me at anytime, Day or night.

Oh, And can I say NEW Hotness?

Stay away from benzos (like clonazepam) and alcohol. They both hit GABA receptors in your brain. I would not use either of those drugs if I were you.

Congratulations on your progress, and I hope you stay your course!

Oh yeah that's for sure. I owe a lot to people on this board that stepped in during those dire and dull moments. Sometimes you need friendly advice to keep you going!

Keep up the fight and good job so far.

To me people have always been judged by not how far they can sink, but rather how well they can regain their footing.
Anyone can fall, but real winners pull themselves back up.

Well done my friend.

Kicking anti-anxiety meds is not easy.

You got will power. I hope it serves you well in your journeys.
Link Posted: 11/5/2015 12:13:02 AM EST
Good for you, I really mean that. I have nothing but respect for someone who has the strength, willpower, and determination after a failure (be it drugs, tragic loss, etc) to beat the odds and become successful again.

Good to hear. How were you able to pay for it?

I don't know you from Adam, OP, but God bless.

Just remember that you shouldn't ever get to a point where you're too haughty and think it can't happen to you again.

Congrats on the new truck!

Keep up the good/hard work.

I actually have had my CDL since 2004. I lost my warehouse job back in June of 2013. Without any schooling or driving experience I then had flopped down $4 grand to take a 180 hour certification course.
I drove for a petroleum tanker company for 8 months and then the decline happened.

It's like a really big chain. It's part of the track system for backhoes.

Also I'm a company driver. I don't think I could deal with owning my own truck.

Nice rig dude! I'll be your lot lizard anytime in that it looks so comfy.

I wouldn't necessarily be that down on the meds. Sometimes they are just what is needed to get you over a hump. True too that many times they are over prescribed...

In either case glad things are looking up.

Great Job Man!!! And that is a beautiful truck. I envy you guys. The open road ,the beauty of America before your wheels. I'd love to do it myself. Then I think about driving that through a city and backing up to a loading dock!?!?!?! You guys earn your pay for sure.

Most importantly, great job overcoming what you have.

Great work, thank you for sharing. It took a lot of strength for you to pull yourself through that tough spot in your life. You will inspire others that are going through a tough time.

Dude, your empathy is in the cesspool. Everyone will sail into troubled waters sometime in life. What matters is how you navigate the shoals and that you can walk upright once you get downstream.

That is the chain for a the crawler on a tracked vehicle. The grousers(shoes) bolt to the links and this makes up the crawler assembly. The size of the links make me think it is for D9/D10/D11 sized Dozer.

Keep it arrow straight OP!!!
