Why I Say "Sober" More Than "Clean"

I started my cling to materialistic resolution at the age of eleven when I was taken to an adolescent psychiatry and psychology doctor at one of the most prestigious institutes in the world. I'd complained about depression and asked my mother to end it, but I didn't know something much worse would start from this. I didn't want it to end in this way... After evaluating me, and seeing many resident doctors, I couldn't establish a solid relationship with anyone; so it was a new diagnosis every time. Inherently it was a new medication every time, too. Because if one...

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...

How Do I Do it? Seriously, so simple...

I was depraved from the years of drug, alcohol, and people addictions. I had no care for myself or any other freaking soul out there, and the world was my playground. I’d sold myself and bought others time as well, not to mention the mass amounts of blow we’d usually do in exchange for whatever the hell it is we were doing! I was completely out of my mind, for a very long time. I’d vandalize property, heck, I’d attempt B&E’s, which is something I was so ashamed of announcing on here that this is the first time. Maybe, because...

Dealing with Medication While 100% Sober

I live by the motto 100% sober, but it comes with stipulations. There are certain things that you can’t go without in life; like food, water, shelter. And now, when it comes to mental health there are also things you cannot go without; one being sanity. If you don’t know my story I’ve battled many mental health ailments in my life, most are gone now. I’ve been through things like schizoid tendencies, Tourette’s Syndrome induced from drug abuse, paranoia, depression, anxiety, and anger issues. Today, I am living 100% sober as I can because I still have physical health issues...

I'm Not an Addict in Recovery, but I Still Chose to be 100% Sober! Why?

My wife and I were sitting around talking today and I had a few questions on my mind. If most of you didn’t already know, she isn’t an addict. But the best part about it for me is that she understands addiction pretty well, understands recovery well, and is completely abstinent and sober herself. Now what I’d always thought was that she had stopped for me when we’d gotten together, and that isn’t completely false. But to my surprise it’s not that hard for her either; I’m not sure why I’m surprised by that, but it really isn’t hard for...
