[ ADD ME ]


was a doper from 1967 to 1989, my drug of choice was any, more and yours. i did not share mine because i was like most a selfish stingy doper and always had better stuff than you could ever find. most of the drugs i used they don't even make any more. i have 4 children. john is 37 and lives with his wife kimberly and my grandkids, tyler, mystree and jaysdon in nebraska. shauna is 26 and lives in Alaska.. nick is 25 and is in prison in Alaska . I am on my 3rd and last marriage. Cheryl and i met on a dating site called udate.com the day after 9/11. she has been by my side through hell and back. i picked up my first guitar in late 1967 and have never put it down since. i have played in so many rock bands toured alaska, canada, the pacific northwest. i still own 6 of them. i play my acoustic/electric 12 string the most. i have been very active in my recovery. don't let yourself get complacent or think you know everything because if and when you do i will be there to hand you a welcome chip.I have gone through 22 surgeries in the past 24 years.with 6 years clean i became an insulin dependant diabetic. i guess that was God's way of showing me his sense of humor. 25 years ago i would have killed for one syringe and now i have 600 under the sink and can't get loaded. is that f@cked up or what? 8 years ago i had upper cervical surgery where they fused discs c-2 and c-3 and then plated disc's c-4 and c-5. 6 years ago in january of 2007 i had a major heart attack and had to be flown to Las Vegas for a triple by pass. in January of 2008 i had a minor heart attack and had to have one of the by passes repaired. this January i had to have an angioplasty to blow plaque out of another vein in my heart. December 13th 2010, i had another heart attack and two days later another angiogram. i have the disease of bi-polarism and have for the past 30 years, i served two terms in Viet Nam and also suffer from PTSD. i attended my first 12 step meeting at 17 and did not make it back for 17 years. i got clean at the age of 34 and in sept. i turned a gratefuly clean 58. . so believe me when i say That recovery is a journey not a destination and use the rest stops God provides along the way.i am on Facebook as JJ DeTemple........We recently got a major gift from God when Cheryl took a job in Oahu , Hawaii and i now play the guitar all day and play beach bum, go to meetings, have already spoke in Hawaii 4 times. Got a couple of sponsees and they are newcomers but really want what i have to offer.....NA Big Hugs, JJ


Spending time with my wife cheryl, playing the guitar for over 46 years. retired radio announcer after 35 years on the air waves in Alaska, Oregon, Montana and Arizona. I now own a mobile DJ service. I also very much enjoy working with my sponsees and watching them grow in Recovery. God has given us today enjoy it for the gift it is.And it is a "gift" you do not have to give back. it's yours to keep for life....

judge mental people. people who drive and talk on their cell phones . people who say they are Recovered. i want to know if they are Recovered then why in the heck are they going to meetings for? maybe they could tell us their secret and we can become recovered too. please don't ever think your recovered. if you do trying not going to a meeting for 6months and then check your mental state and then tell me how great you feel. it's the 12 step program of your choice but there is no easier softer way.

JJ:
I first want to apologize for not getting back to you. I've been embroiled with publishing my book, DIRTY WHITE BOY, and regretfully, I have been quite remiss in regards to answering communications in a timely fashion. I shall try to avoid this type of selfish behavior in the future.
I don't know the nature or the extent of whatever may be forcing you and your family to leave Hawaii, but whatever it is, I certainly hope that it is, "working itself out", favorably. I truly wish there is/was something I could do to help.
For at least the next 90 days, my book will be offered on Kindle Select exclusively; after that I shall try and make it available to addiction sites at a very affordable price. If you would like, I can send you a synopsis and/or a preview. (Actually, if you navigate to the Kindle site you can access the "Look Inside" option and read the first two or more chapters)
Again, I hope things work out for you and your family......talk soon,

Frank.

Hi JJ.. I'm sorry I haven't been on here for a while... It's just that I've been going through it with depression.. I have a profile in DepressionTribe and I've needed to keep in touch with my friends there for support..

I'm ok, but I have to keep coming here and staying strong; my health is not good and my prognosis is scary, but I'll never give up again, REGARDLESS OF HOW BAD THINGS GET..
I'm working on my faith at the moment, because I know that Iv need it more than anything..
I'll spend more time here now I'm through my depression...
Anyway, how are you doing?? Whatcha been up to?? Sending blessings to you and yours Stay safe my dear friend.. (((HUGS)))

Hey JJ.. How are you my brother from another Mother?? You let me know ok :) I'm doing a lot better than I was; I've finally stopped belly aching and I've got myself off the pity pot..
I know from all the years I've spent in recovery is that I must accept the things I can not change!! I remember my long time Sponsor telling me just that..(many times :)
I've been spending a lot of time in Depressiontribe coz I've needed to.. There are so many people with mental issues (like me) and I have some wonderful friends there..
I AM so grateful to God for all His Grace..
I'm also very grateful to have a friend in you.. Honesty all the way eh.. yeah, I know that's the only way to recover..
Say hello to your lady for me and keep safe..


((((((hugs)))))

Clive Cussler, John Sanford, Kim Harrison, J.J. Jance, just about any good book is worth reading. The NA basic text.

Star Trek fanatic. Star Trek premiered on TV 9/8/66 my 12th birthday. i love good action movies. don't go to enough movies. i should go to more.my favorite movie is Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid, Heart Break Ridge, Twister, All Batman Movies the last Star Trek movie was outstanding and the BUcket List is extemely hilarious.

playing guitar, spending time with my wife, listening to music, going to meetings, conventions when i can afford them. we have only been given one hand of cards in life we either play what we have been given or fold. enjoy God's wonders today for what they are. they are true gifts of beauty given to us to enjoy.
