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...

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...

Being Friends with ‘Normies’ is Important to my Recovery

I’m in recovery, and most of my friends are sober as well. But, I may be in recovery and still have the need for non-recovering friends, too. But, when I say I need friends that aren’t recovering I don’t mean friends that are actively doing drugs, either. I don’t mean that kind of non-recovery. I ...
