Personally, I feel that I have a calling. I feel like the world needs to hear my story in hopes that it can change someone’s life. Even if its just one person, I’ll forever be grateful. Now that I’ve told you most of the bad that’s happened, I absolutely have to tell you about my recovery!
I say this in the most humble way: my recovery is nothing less than miraculous.
I am a walking, talking miracle. When I was in active addiction, I would pick at my skin compulsively for days and days at a time. I had scabs all over my whole body and I would get staff infections. Today, I have literally no scars on my body. I have healed physically, but let me tell about the rest…
I have healed in all aspects: mentally, spiritually, physically and financially. Today, I am blessed with so many opportunities. I travel all over. I have hobbies now which include mountain hiking, rock climbing, and lifting weights. I am turning one of my favorite hobbies into a business: photography.
I work closely with a few juveniles to mentor them into becoming better men. Today, I am passionate about helping addicts and their families find peace from addiction. Today, I myself have found peace from my addiction. I no longer have the uncontrollable urge to use drugs. Today, I am finally the father my daughter deserves and the son my parents deserve.”
