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...

Conquering Anxiety With Love <3

Tonight has been filled with so many soft and sweet--yet difficult to ignore--lustful notions. I am now convinced that a #lovewins mentality can conquer anything. But that's such a hard pill to swallow. It's an overzealous supplement to most. And continually overwhelming to myself.I've never been a firm believer in faith. But everything around me begins to shine.  Sitting back, I begin to relax after lulling my gorgeous wife to sleep with a beautiful passage by our hometown hero, “Mitch Albom.”And although everyone is asleep. You can tell that "family lives here." You may think I'm crazy by telling you only...

A Steady Flow of Blood...

Hi Substance For You fans – the fitness guy is back; One Rep Marv! This week I was asked by the big bossman to write about my own experience about using blood flow and strategic exercise to possibly reduce some chronic pain. No studies, no scientific facts, this is just my opinion. Brian, the owner here at Substance For You, definitely threw me a curve ball with that last part of the request, but I’m stepping up to the plate regardless and taking a swing at it. A little about myself is that I'm only 31 years old, yet, I've...

How Exercise & Weight Training Reduce Cravings and Triggers!

I don’t know about you, but drugs and alcohol were not my #1 problem. But, they were my #1 solution to everything. Good, bad, or indifferent, it was always a good time to get loaded. When that #1 solution was thankfully no longer an option, I was in desperate need of new solutions.That’s what recovery is to me; a new set of solutions to facing life on life’s terms that don’t involve sacrificing my dignity or selling my soul to get loaded. The problem is the act of using drugs makes profound changes in our brains which have been reinforced...
