Who came up with New Year’s Resolutions? Whoever they were, they must have been a masochist. I have seldom seen a person stick to their resolutions; more often, I have witnessed the guilt and upset that comes from falling short of lofty goals. Don’t get me wrong! Goal setting is important- vital, even, in recovery. It gives you a place to focus your energy and produces a sense of achievement and pride as you move past milestones. But there is a balance between setting goals and setting yourself up for failure. “I’m going vegan…” …or “I’m saving money…” …or “I’m [...]

Now, not knocking Texas but I was trained by The Price Is Right. Yes, the television show we all watched when we were home “sick” from school. You NEVER go for the first option in the Showcase Showdown, the second one [...]

I Never Knew Addiction Affected My Life

I was raised in a stable safe home, by a single mother that often struggled to make ends meet. We didn’t have a lot but we always had each other and I always knew I was loved, a lot.  My parents ended their very short lived marriage by the time I was eight months old.  My dad would visit from time to time until I turned three.

The Strength of Our Stories

In early recovery, I really struggled when looking back on my past. All of the errors in judgement I had made, the people I had harmed, it seems every choice I made was followed up with one that was worse. My own family called me the “dumbest smart guy” they knew.

I felt that not only had I made mistakes but I WAS [...]
