3yrs ago today I was a homeless herion addict walking into my 13th treatment center. My mother had bought me a plot, people had taken life insurance policies out on me and i just woke up from being on life support for several days. My worldly possessions consisted of 8 scarves, 2 jackets, 3 socks and 1 stick of deodorant that fits into a bag that doubles as my pillow and 4 cigarette butts that i picked up off the street. My mother had served me with a restraining order, then simply went to God with one prayer..."God, please cure him, kill him, or kill me." Today I stand before you with 3yrs of continuous sobriety without use of a drink or a drugπŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ Addiction is NOT a death sentence, your history does not have to dictate your future, as long as your breathing its never to late!!! If your looking for help but can't see past the bag, bottle, needle, or pill....

My son is turning 9 tomorrow.
I really don’t like to talk about, but recently searched tag #autismrecovery and thought that maybe I’ll write this post if someone searches the tag and finds it inspirational.
Mark is a case of a complete #recoveryfromautism
When he was 2 or 3 we were not sure if he’ll ever be able to function. My bravest dream for him at age 3-4 was #aspergerssyndrome at least he can talk and kinda function. The memories are nightmares now. We used #biomedical approach, lots of #floortime and #abatherapy We’re absolutely sure that vaccines were the cause of turning a healthy baby into a sick, miserable kid, whose troubles and battles I cannot and don’t want to count. We started #glutencaseinfree #gfcf #gfcfsf at age 2. It changed everything drastically. I still have pictures of supplements he was on. Some days he swallowed around 100 pills (those were never drugs, except for antibiotics for #clostridium etc, but vitamins, minerals and probiotics), and had #mb12 shots at night.
If anyone will find one more inspiration from this I’ll be glad. I’m far away from a #modelmom and always thought that there’s more that enough inspiration for new #autismparents and more than enough #recoverystories #successstories for me to share ours. So it’s the first time I shared.
Mark is completely healthy and happy now. He’s turning 9 tomorrow and he changed our lives completely.

Drunk dream last night. So happy to be able to wake up to my beautifully imperfect sober life! #gratitude#sobriety #recoverystories #anxiety #mindfulness #thankfulformylife #lovemylife #traumarecovery #realityrocks #cultivatinggrowth

Good morning...somedays no matter what you do it's just not good enough..as always poker is a metaphor for life..my big hands were getting cracked left and right last night..I was missing my draws..maybe I overplayed a hand or two..I kept saying if I got even I was leaving...3 buy-ins later I'm still trying to get there..but just like in life if you persevere things can change in an instant...nothing better than trying to get back in the game when you look down at them two black aces..this hand set up perfectly for me..player to my right makes it $30..I raise to $65 trying to isolate him but player to my left bumps it to $100..I eventually get my $171 stack in with these clowns to the left of me jokers to the right...as you can see I smashed the flop and filled up on the turn tripling my stack to ~$500...I still had work to do but eventually walked away +$145 for the night..the way things were going all evening that felt like I won a million...now it's time to step back because obsessive compulsive john is peeking his head out..3 straight late nights of winning poker got me wanting to take over the world..but these days I'm able to use my self awareness to step outside myself to analyze the situation..I'm going to take a few days off of poker and enjoy the holiday weekend...balance is vital in my life today and I'm teetering a little right now...have a safe Memorial Day weekend everyone...fuck out my face...oooowwww!! πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ‘‘πŸ‘‘πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’£πŸ’£πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ—£πŸ—£β™₯️♠️♦️♣️πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜

Let’s hear it for @terin.devoto πŸ‘ β€œBACK THEN (left): The only thing I worried about then was getting high and staying drunk. I would worry about my next court date or failing my next UA and breathalyzer. I would worry about where I was going to sleep that night (because I had nowhere to call home) or how I was going to hustle up enough money to stay drunk, get high and eat that day (because I had no job). NOW (right): The beauty of living life sober is my struggles today are based around amazing blessings in my life. Career decision struggles (but I have multiple streams of income), parenting struggles (but I have a beautiful baby girl) and struggling to find my true purpose in life (but I’m finally asking myself the question and pursuing passions).” #soberlife #sobriety #recovery #recoverystories #sobermovement #soberissexy #partysober #cleanandsober #cleanandserene #odaat #onedayatatime #behappywithyourself #behappy #bepositive #courage #hope #inspiration #inspire #soberaf #support #addictionrecovery #bethechange #wedorecover #sobersince #transformation #beforeandafter #beforeandafterphoto #recoverycommunity

#ThrowbackThursday #TBT
.
JAILS, INSTITUTIONS & DEATH
.
15+ charges
6+ jail visits
5+ bond violations
4 inpatient rehabs
4 court ordered classes
4 probation officers
3 outpatient rehabs
2 hospital visits
2 sober living houses
2 totaled cars
1 defeated addict ready for a new life...
.
Even with all those numbers, everything listed above, there was no outside force that was going to get me to quit using. There was no getting better until I was truly and absolutely ready within myself to stop. What finally got me sober was the emotional rock bottom, that feeling of emptiness and solitude all of us addicts know too well.
.
Addiction leads to negative consequences and traumas, near death experiences and many relationships ruined... But as addicts and alcoholics, we will not change until we are completely defeated spiritually and emotionally; being ready for change and that moment of clarity can only come from within ourselves. It’s then, and only then, that we become willing to listen and do absolutely whatever it takes to never go back!
.
Jails, institutions and death. When I read those three words all I feel is an overwhelming amount of GRATITUDE. I had multiple rock bottoms, they always got worse as I continued to use, but none of them put me six feet under. And if that’s not a good enough reason to be extremely grateful every day, I don’t know what is ❀️

Let’s hear it for another great #igfriend of mine @kristinlabak on her 2 YEARS OF SOBRIETY TODAY! πŸ‘ Fun Fact: We both still like to go to the bars and have our presence be known. It must be a #masshole thing πŸ˜‚ β€œ2️⃣ years ago I decided to challenge myself to thirty days without alcohol. Those first 30 days without ❌🍺 truly gave me a new clarity on life. I instantaneously felt better. It peeled back layers and exposed my bad habits, bad choices and I GOT REAL REAL WITH MYSELF. 100 days. 6 months. 500 days. A year. Now 2. Since I’ve stooped using alcohol to β€œhave fun”, β€œbe an extrovert,” β€œbe social,” β€œnot GAF,” β€œcelebrate life,” β€œmourn life,” β€œcope with heartache,” my life decisions have been thought through with clarity and patience. I no longer make irresponsible and regrettable decisions with impulse. THANK YOU #teamsober for the support over these 730 days.” #soberlife #sobriety #recovery #recoverystories #sobermovement #soberissexy #partysober #cleanandsober #cleanandserene #odaat #onedayatatime #behappywithyourself #behappy #bepositive #courage #hope #soberaf #support #inspiration #inspire #addictionrecovery #bethechange #wedorecover #sobersince #transformation #recoverycommunity #2yearssober

Let’s hear it for @therealkarenlano πŸ‘ β€œLEFT πŸ‘‰πŸΌ destroying my life and drowning in alcohol. At one point I was going through at least 150 oz of straight vodka a week and would black out regularly. I hid my addiction and lied to protect it. I couldn’t do anything without having a drink before, during, and after. RIGHT πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Six years sober by the grace of GOD and accomplishing things I never thought possible with my life. I’m able to be present for my son and my family and contribute to my community. ✨Even though they are painful, I keep those memories in front of me to remind myself how awful it was and to never go back. Praying that my transparency will inspire and encourage others like it does me! Thankful for this community of brave souls βœ¨β€ #soberlife #sobriety #recovery #recoverystories #sobermovement #soberissexy #partysober #cleanandsober #cleanandserene #odaat #onedayatatime #behappywithyourself #behappy #bepositive #courage #hope #inspiration #inspire #soberaf #support #addictionrecovery #bethechange #wedorecover #sobersince #transformation #beforeandafter #beforeandafterphoto #recoverycommunity
