19 Days Clean...

I'm Jake, have 19 days clean, and I call it my first real attempt at recovery, because before, it was either to satisfy my family, a girlfriend, a job, or whatever the cause may be; but the reason wasn’t me. This time getting clean is for me, and at the same time I’ll be helping my wife and newborn daughter. I want my daughter to grow up with a positive male role model in her life, while showing her that you can overcome anything that is put in your path. She’ll see the strength within me and our family when...

Recovery From Norway!

Hi! I'm Torill from Norway! I grew up in a dysfunctional family. With alcoholism, physical, verbal, and sexual abuse. I was the oldest daughter—the second oldest child—and took on the role of parenting early on. When my youngest sibling was born with a disability it was I who took care of her, carried her out when the weather was good, tickled her "useless" feet with grass, and told her stories about reaching for the sun with the wind stroking our faces. The grown ups said she was a punishment from god. We weren't even religious. "The grown ups said she...

From Youth Addiction to Recovery Race Car Driving!

I’m Brad Seavers, motorcycle racer turned auto racer.  We all have a story to tell.  I am sharing mine in hopes that it will give you, or someone close to you, the courage and strength to move forward and find the better path that’s out there waiting for you! The first emotion I recall as a young child (3-4 years old) is that of fear.  I remember watching my parents fight and my father going into a drunken rage…something that would become all too familiar throughout my life. By the age 12, I had lived in fear almost every day...

Runner's High Feeding My Addiction or Helping Recovery?

Injuries suck. Worse than that, not being able to run sucks. Before you cut me off, I promise I am not going to waste your time reading my complaints through toxic word vomit. This is more about a lesson in balance and moderation, valuable to any person in recovery. Some people choose running for health benefits, mental health equilibrium, or a temporary escape. An addict in recovery may choose running to chase a runner’s high. While driving to work today, I passed runners on the streets and sidewalks I generally run on. I cannot help but feel a twinge of...

How Recovery Tees Help Me!

In my early recovery, I was terrified; reentering the “normal” world terrified me, changing every single part of my life terrified me. I had to drop 99% of my friends and I was glad to do it because my new life was more important! If they were true friends, they would understand and maybe even come back into my life, if it worked for me. That’s the type of selfishness I need in my recovery, I was always a hedonistic, people pleaser and rarely thought about myself! Once I got out of treatment I promised myself that I would always...
