Default Beating the statistics

Well, as of Saturday [3-18-06] I survived the statistics, they say that a drug offender has an 80% chance of reoffending within one year of release! I have one year and two days out and still as determined to stay out!!!! Six more months of supervised parole and I will just about feel that I can make it the whole way!

Well, you sure do give me hope. My friend is hoping to get into a really intense rehab program if he ends up in a KY prison. He's in his 40's and all I can do is support him and pray like crazy that it sticks this time. As we all know, it's so hard to stay clean especially after you get out of prison, but to see that some can do it, it's very reassuring. Keep it up and I'll plan on sending you another Whoo Hoo in a year!
