Let it Go.

Let it Go...Couldn't agree MORE!! 

This past weekend has been a happy but emotional one for me celebrating my 5 years. When you celebrate this type of milestone it seems surreal because YOU are the only one who knows the true struggle you had in days of addiction and in recovery. Yes, recovery can be a struggle but the bad days in recovery will ALWAYS win over the best days in addiction because they were really not all that great or few and far between. I will never be cured of this disease cause yes it is a disease y'all. I still have days 5 years into this where the thought of drinking comes to my mind and how good it would feel to be drunk..truth! I have to let that thought come to mind feel it and then shake it off and not live in that addiction demon. I didn't say to myself one day "man, I'm going to become an alcoholic today and do the following...ruin relationships, spend nights in jail, spend nights in hospitals because of drunken induced accidents, destroy my body, wake up next to someone not knowing their name, missed milestone moments in friends/family lives, go into a tailspin of debt, do drugs that you always said you wouldn't do, shame/guilt spiral, lose jobs, missed opportunities and spend a decade of my life in this vicious cycle cause this all sounds like a good time!" My sober life is my life now and I know turning back to the bottle will never solve anything and will just bring more bad then good but at some point, if you want a better life you really have to make the CHOICE TO STOP. I did and if I can, so can you!!

 My bestie was alcohol and that best friend of mine at one point of my life would have eventually killed me down the road. Let it go, get the help and know that YOU are WORTH IT!
