September is Recovery Month.
"Recovery Month spreads the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can and do recover." lifted right from the website www.recoverymonth.gov
I have been in Recovery for almost three years now (November 9th will mark my third year of sobriety) and I am ready to share my Story of Survival with the world. My Road to Recovery was not easy, but I am still on it and I am still moving Forward today. One of the greatest and hardest things about Waking Up and re embracing Life is that you begin to Feel Everything again. This, of course can be very painful especially when we have to face down our old demons without the aid of anesthetic. It's like learning to walk again after a bad accident but eventually we put down our crutches and Stand Up for Our Selves. The important thing to remember is that we are Never Alone.
On September 26th I am going to have breakfast with 600 of my fellow Survivors and friends in London Ontario.
Addiction loves Darkness and is always trying to Hide. I hope that sharing my personal journey will shine a bright light through these shadows and help bring us All closer to The Truth :
We Are Good People.
I am bringing one of my oldest friends (Old Brown) and we both hope to see you there on September 26th
