Will Speaks Out on 4 Years Sober!

God gave me a second chance at life. Every day the gratitude that I feel that I am alive, and especially on this day, is surreal. *Alcoholic/drug addict or not, never forget how far you've come. Everything that you've survived through, all the times you've pushed on, even when you felt you couldn't. All the mornings you got out of bed, no matter how hard it was. All the times you wanted to give up but you got through another day.#onedayatatime. Find the willingness to surrender who you were, for who you can become. #putgodfirst. #AA. #unityrecoveryservice. #helpothers. #lifeafteralcohol. #lifeafterRX. #lifeafterheroin....

I DON'T BELIEVE IN ANONYMITY!

I believe that anonymity does no one any good. I tried it and it made me sicker than I'd ever been. But even worse, it let those who know absolutely nothing about me, speak out about me on my behalf. Once the ideal wasn't so farfetched, and for some, it may work. But today, the concept seems so absurd for me personally, and for a society that is supposed to benefit from the people in it. As well as the people in it have a system that is set up for them to win simply by a loyal contribution. Right?It's...

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...
