1 year sober

A year ago today I stuck a needle in my arm for the last time… It’s hard to believe 365 days have passed since that day. I almost cant believe it.

Its strange… looking back I feel like theres no way in hell that much time could have passed… but at the same time… everyday felt like it lasted a life time.

During active addiction I never pictured a day where I’d be able to sit a say that I’d made it this far.

I’d love to say that it was easy… and truth be told some days it was as easy as breathing. But other days it wasnt. Some days it felt like all I could do was get to the next second. The next minute. The next hour. Doing everything I could to distract myself from the gnawing Inside me that just wanted to go get a fix…

If it wasnt for the amazing support system I had around me theres no way I would have made it this far. So I’d like to publicly say thank you to my friends and family and my sponsor who have helped me get to where I am today.

Where I am today is happy. Healthy. And optimistic.

I’m so grateful.

To those of you out there still struggling I want to tell you firsthand that there is hope… you can do this. If I did. Anyone can.
