Dear Alcohol, You took my life apart, piece-by-piece, and destroyed it. At first I didn’t notice it was you – it couldn’t be, because you were my friend.
I have a complicated relationship with pills. I love that I have emotional stability. I hate that I can’t just pull myself up by the bootstraps and carry on.
Rock’n’roll is often associated with excessive consumption and intoxication. So how did two rock bands so associated with drugs lead to my recovery?
I’m almost five years sober: this July 17th will mark my five years in recovery. For the first time, I’m feeling nervous about the approaching milestone, and I’m not sure why.
