Supporting the addiction

I'm just curious what everyone does to support "addiction"?

I'm a field technician at an environmental consulting company. I take soil and water samples mainly. But I'm trying to convince them to let me get my mold, lead, asbestos inspector licenses.

Before this, I worked as a hazardous materials technician in emergency response. Basically, I cleaned up nasty stuff. I was down at the Gulf Oil spill, and the one in Michigan. I travelled A LOT, so I had to take a break from horses for awhile.

I work as an office managet at a medium IT company. I have taken on WAY more responsibilities, yet it still took more than a year to get my raise- which took effect last week! I won't be eligible again for quite some time, no matter how many more job responsibilities I take on, so I'm stuck at "horse broke" at the moment. LOL

QA Officer at an environmental lab, we test waste water. Before that I was a forensic analyst at our local crime lab. Talk about a switch is careers!

I work at Western Pleasure training barn. And also haul horses for Ruckman Quarter Horses periodically. I have a spousal unit that works and he pays all other bills, and most of horse bills too.

It was not always that way though. I'm 56 and it has taken years (and several spousal units) to get to this point. Years.

Horses make me a better person.
