How Love is Conquering All in My Life!

I'm in love. And in love, everything looks so much brighter. All around me is vibrant and luscious. I can feel the air saturated with perfectly timed scents of lavender and chamomile. If you're following along closely and intently, I'm sure that you too can nearly taste the essence of sweet Serenity's bliss. It's terrifyingly contagious and I know you're with me... Ah! Love. For most of my life, I've battled depression. But today is a day in love. One in which I am sweetly soaring the clouds with my honey. It is true. Love really does win! This doesn't...

This is How a Sober Wife, Saved My Family Life…

It’s absolutely awesome having a sober wife who’s not actually in recovery! She gives me, and, understands the best of both worlds. And just because she hasn’t been an addict, doesn’t mean she hasn’t been through struggle growing up in the Philippines, or even being married to an addict (me). She understands my need and want to stay sober, but then, also understands the “normie” aspect to living a balanced and fulfilling life; that I frankly wouldn’t get without being around her so freaking much! Like when I’ll go on an 18-hour work binge because stuff is flowing, and knowing...

In fact,...

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...

From Crumbling Addiction to Crossfit Recovery!

I wasn’t introduced to drugs or alcohol until I was 18 and in college, but I knew from the first time I took a drink, that I was doing it differently than everyone else. While everyone else would stop after 1 or 2, I wasn’t stopping until 10 or 15. Back then, I just thought I was really good at partying. Time passed, and I got married young, and moved far away from home. About a year into that marriage, things started to go downhill, and the relationship became abusive. I didn’t know where to turn for help, so I...
