Why I Say "Sober" More Than "Clean"

I started my cling to materialistic resolution at the age of eleven when I was taken to an adolescent psychiatry and psychology doctor at one of the most prestigious institutes in the world. I'd complained about depression and asked my mother to end it, but I didn't know something much worse would start from this. I didn't want it to end in this way... After evaluating me, and seeing many resident doctors, I couldn't establish a solid relationship with anyone; so it was a new diagnosis every time. Inherently it was a new medication every time, too. Because if one...

Goodbye Blood Clots! Hello, Recovery.

Because of my addiction to substances—amongst other things—my liver has never really been too great until recent years. I’ve gone through talks with doctors who’ve mentioned things like liver transplants, and put myself at risk for hepatitis C and AIDS by sharing needles. My liver has been inflamed and I’ve never drank enough water, at the right foods, or took care of myself until I found recovery. It was always booze, needles, and fast food joints on top of smoking and garbage into my system… But what struck me the hardest, and most painful, was blood clots going through the...

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...
