My Fight

  I was 17. The best time of my life ahead of me and not a care in the world. Popular in school, played sports and was in a great relationship with my high school sweetheart. As I look back now, a decision that I made on that hot July night would change my life forever. You see, I did not know at that time that I was an addict. I did not know that one thing that made me feel good, would have such a grip on me and my life. That night I had a friend (he was the 21 year old we all hung out with) buy me beer. It was love at first sight. That sweet nectar changed me. It freed me for a moment in my life when I thought I couldn't be more free. However, that night, I started walking down the road to my death. For the next 22 years I let substance abuse consume me and all those around me.

  I have a story to tell. A story of hurt, guilt, happiness, loneliness, and triumph! I want to take you all for a ride in my life. I want to tell you my story. I want to join together with my "brothers and sisters of addiction" and together win "The Recovery Fight"! In this blog will write about my story and my daily fight for recovery. I will share tips on what helps me and share positive feed back from my readers. I am not perfect. I fight everyday. I need you guys more than you know. I look forward to sharing our stories, our defeats and our victories!

 In closing, please feel free to comment on my blog. Ask me questions. I'm an open book and I can not heal and win the fight without talking about my addiction. Together, we will win the fight.
