Collaborative Communities to Aide Preventing Addiction

In my personal opinion—which is what you’re here to read—I believe that collaborative communities are the way to finding longevity in not just the recovery community, but our nation(s) as a whole. They have the ability to help create the awareness and educational tools available to prevent addiction before it happens; not after the fact! A collaborative community is the essence of why we share commonalities and differences of our experience, strength, and hope. Through these types of societal changes that will come from creating a more aware, educated, and yet conversational community there will be hope to bring prevention...

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!

Because it’s hard to find people at major drinking Universities who will hang out with you when you’re sober. But, these guys didn’t really drink. Or at least they didn’t do other things until my last year there. It sucks that it...

Six Years Clean and a Merry Christmas!

Today was my six years clean and sober, in recovery, and one of the best days that I’ve had in a long time! It was also Christmas, and sobriety was a great present to myself, as well as others. I wasn’t only rejoicing for me but I was rejoicing for the sanity of my mother and health of my father. Frankly, this was the first year that one, or both, of her sons hasn’t spent in the hospital. That alone is a blessing. But to say that I’ve been actively working on my recovery for six years now is a...
