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...

It’s Not Easy, And That’s Why We Do Recover

Addiction is something unique that only addicts will share, in struggle and good times too. But no one ever said that going from addiction to recovery would be easy. And to me, I think that is exactly why people do recover. I know that my journey wasn’t an easy one. I even remember the last time that I got clean from heroin, alcohol, and mental health medication I did it cold turkey because I wanted to “feel that pain.” I wanted to feel that pain so I would have it in the back of my mind any time I felt...

Something Beautiful...

Life's gonna kick you in the teeth, push you around, and push the breath right out of you. I've been fu*$#ed up and screwed over so many times, but time and time again, I found myself to come out a terrible situation bigger, better, and tougher than ever before. It was something to learn from. And in recovery there’s never losing, only learning. Heck, life too! Life's treated me like a boxer, or maybe an MMA fighter, standing in the ring facing a heavy wait knockout artist. I get pushed up against the ropes and beaten in the gut to...

The House That Recovery Built!

It wasn’t always this way….  It wasn’t always a life with a gorgeous wife, who’s in the kitchen cleaning up from dinner while I sit in our cozy office room writing this inspirational article. I never used to have things to call my own, but, instead I was addicted to heroin and desolated from the normal day-to-day in society. Looking back on it all though, it did make me tougher. I remember times that I would come home to my trailer near Detroit and some of my things would be missing because my roommate was selling them to the dope...

How Do I Do it? Seriously, so simple...

I was depraved from the years of drug, alcohol, and people addictions. I had no care for myself or any other freaking soul out there, and the world was my playground. I’d sold myself and bought others time as well, not to mention the mass amounts of blow we’d usually do in exchange for whatever the hell it is we were doing! I was completely out of my mind, for a very long time. I’d vandalize property, heck, I’d attempt B&E’s, which is something I was so ashamed of announcing on here that this is the first time. Maybe, because...
