On the left, a year and a half before I took my last drink, a photo of me drunk in a bar after drinking for several hours on the river, this is me before I drove home to my son. I am an alcoholic. I quit drinking 18 months ago. I am often asked, "Do you really think you have a problem?" Yes. My life is unmanageable when I drink, when I drink I cant stop until I hit the floor. When I drink I live in guilt for my actions and self loathing for my choices, I even considered that suicide may be my only way out. 'The life of sobriety is not an easy one. But it's an adventure in living that is really worthwhile. And it is so much better than my old drunken way of living that there's no comparison.' I am grateful to be alive. 18 months drug and alcohol free ✌ 🙌🙏 If you're struggling too, there is a solution. #sobersociety#soberliving#liveauthentic#vibewithme#soarwithme#18monthssober#addictionrecovery#soberlife#sobriety#sobernation#wedorecover#afriendofbills#lifeonlifesterms#attitudeofgratitude
'You with the sad eyes Don't be discouraged Oh I realize Its hard to take courage In a world full of people You can lose sight of it all And the darkness inside you Can make you feel so small
But I see your true colors Shining through I see your true colors And that's why I love you So don't be afraid to let them show Your true colors True colors are beautiful Like a rainbow'
The one thing about having orange colored walls in your little studio space is that sometimes, the shirt colors don’t photograph well. This is a navy and daisy shirt with one of my favorite decals on it.
