I am a recovering alcoholic and addict. As most addicts, I am addicted to more than just drugs and alcohol. I addicted to anything that can alter my mood and make me focus on the feelings I’m really having; anything that can make me live in fantasy rather than in reality.
I found 2 years after I got clean and sober, a separate addiction that I never wanted to address became unbearable. I do believe it is because of steps work in 12 step recovery meetings that those other aspects of my life became uncomfortable and that admittance and asking for help became apparent. I had come to yet another crossroads in my life, another chance to choose recovery or death. I chose life.
Today I am proud to say I am a recovery drug addict, alcoholic, and porn addict. Those were all blocking me from God, the sunlight of spirit, and especially from serving others. Even through the pain, the fear, the doubts, I chose life. Today, my life is beautiful. Thank God for recovery.
