Underdog? Love those odds!!

Choices, Choices, Choices
To Choose or Not to Choose, that is the real question.
Let’s face facts, every choice that we make, good or bad, has a consequence. We can choose to eat the cheesecake and love it but we still must deal with the consequences of that decision. We can choose to not show up to work next week but we must deal with the consequences of that choice.
Addiction loves these types of mind games, because it knows that all it has to do is get us to take that first hit or drink and it has us!! Once upon a time I believed that I didn’t have a choice, I had to use to get thru my day. Today I’ve learned that’s bs!! I don’t need a drink or a drug to survive the day, when we start believing that we need this or need that to function ‘normal,’ we defeat ourselves. This or that only takes us away from the things we love. It’s going to bring us deeper down the rabbit hole until it breaks us mentally, emotionally and physically. Then it owns us.
Learning to make better decisions in life opens up a new world to us, we change our view and life changes with us!! If we keep looking for the negative in life then that’s exactly what life will show us, butttttt if we learn to find the positive in every situation then our life will soon reflect that.
When we learn to stop chasing the negative things what do you think we end up doing? We replace it with positive things, with things that give back to us, that feed our soul.
But here’s the truth from a guy that was broken, beaten and a prisoner to my own mind, you don’t have to be stuck living a life that isn’t good for you. You can and will beat your addiction, you will get your life back under control, and years from now you will look back smiling at what you survived. I believe that and so should you. God has a plan for you.

I'm the guy that lost everything...again. My addiction owned me, I didn't sleep, I didn't eat, I just didn't care about my life. My addiction had pushed me to the very edge of the abyss and was screaming inside my head to just 'let go.' But I learned something that day about me, that 'other' voice that was in the way back of my mind, you know the one that always managed to materialize at the worst moments to mess with our buzz? It was planting seeds in our mind's, it was trying to save us. Well that 'other' voice saved me. At my lowest moment I listened and realized the truth, I'm better than this. I applied to Charleston Drug Court, something that I didn't believe I could graduate, but guess what happened? I graduated in about 15 months with no sanctions. I learned that my past had made me stronger, my addiction couldn't continually use the same manipulation to control me anymore. I have found that Recovery has opened closed doors, I got my life back and have found peace, and I want to help the world find that same beautiful peace. That's the mission of recovery-revolution.org, to help addicts find their way back. We Do Recover, I'm living proof.
