Corporate Risk Assessment Aiding Recovery!

The Three Lines of Defence for Corporate and Enterprise Software: A Complete Overview in Relation to Addiction and Mental Health Recovery   INTRO: With many years of growing up around a father who traveled for work that I had no idea about what it was until I became old enough to understand words like governance, risk assessment, or compliance, and it was pretty evident that his understanding of large operating systems was beyond me. And as I grew older I started to contemplate if I could do what he does for a living, or even for fun. I tried to...

What Motivates a Recovery Advocate?

Recovery advocates are promising in helping end the stigma, as well as helping those still sick and suffering in need of hearing a message they could find nowhere else. There are a lot of things that make a recovery advocate special. There are also a lot of things that help recovery advocates relate to those still in the woes of addiction or substance use disorder.

Remembering the Newcomer In Us All…

Today was a beautiful day, as I show up to his in-laws front door, “Knock-knock!” Answers come to a barking dog and smiling face.

His wife greets me in her pajamas, but you could tell that there was a sense of calm after the storm about her. And then meeting their beautiful daughter, pure...

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...

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...
