    I am officially 30-days sober from my ketamine,

    dxm, pcp, narcotics, alcohol, and weed! It's taken me nearly 6 months to make it this far but I can safely say, I have a better chance now than I've ever had before getting my life back on track and fixing everything I've broken in it!

    I've been sober for a few months.
