One Giant Step -From Acidman

One Giant Step

I finished with de-tox and moved from Unit I to Unit II today, at least on paper. They don't have an open bed for me there yet, but that's where I go for all the meetings. I'm still in my old room for now, but I get all the Unit II privileges. More freedom (along with more work) and buffet meals instead of just what somebody else throws on a plate for you.

The food is pretty good here.

I've pretty much recovered from the fall I took last Saturday, and my only problem now is that my feet, ankles and legs are below the knee are so swollen that I can barely wear shoes. I walk like a crab, but at least I'm walking.

Thanks again for all the cards and letters-even the cat-bombs, you assholes-
People are starting to think I'm a celebrity.


~I think the letters are better therapy than what the hospital offers so KEEP SENDING THEM!!! Thank you all for being so supportive of him. You don't know how much you're helping.

Here is the address again:


The following letter is one that was sent to him that he really enjoyed and wanted me to post...
-Sam ~


Hang in there, buddy. One day at a time. :) God bless you!

(From your fellow a-hole at; 22 years sober on Oct. 25 and it's definitely worth it!)

Thanks for all the work you're doing keeping us updated Sam! I don't think I'm alone when I say I appreciate it!

Thanks Sam for the updates. I'm posting an envelope of photos every couple of days. Just stuff from shooting matches or the deercam.
I'll not falter for the duration of his stay.
