Hi all, sorry I haven't been on the board much lately - work has been crazy and I haven't felt the desire to even think about my A.

I forgot my NC date, but I think it's been almost 2 months. Today xAP fished. With a different #, he texted me and said he missed me, and was he the only one.

Of course I did not respond, so he followed up with, guess I am. Yep, damn right he is.

I feel happy because for the first time since ending the A, I feel nothing except a bit of pity for him. He is still addicted, for sure. And I don't care - it's his problem. I have moved on and finally starting to feel like myself again. I am at the end of the tunnel, in the light.

Fishing is SO boring. Nothing to catch here.

I have it!  August 16, 2012 is your NC date :)  

Yep, he's just a poor fisherjam, who's hook will always come up empty in your pond.  He'll get the message eventually...most can only take just so much rejection and being ignored.

You sound great!  Isn't it nice to be in the light?!  I am so happy for you.

And I'm happy, too, you were even able to navigate your way here to give us such a great update.
