14 Years

I have said in the past that I quit alcohol, cocaine and cigarettes all on the same day, however that probably isn’t true… there was a few days into this time where I might have had a cigarette or 3. Memories from those early days are understandably foggy.

Memories in general, I find are foggy bordering on delusional… however I believe this is a human condition, not particular to me.

Regardless it is 14 years at the beginning of September that I quit mind altering substances and decided to sit with and study my uncomfortable emotions instead of trying to drown them.

So far so good.

The world has not ended. I am not the center of the universe and have really never felt better. Putting one foot in front of the other and doing the next right thing.

Prayer and apple cider vinegar!
