Recovery is Possible

Recovery is Possible

For 24 years my addiction of alcohol consumed me. I was 15 when I started drinking and it was off to the races. At first like anything it was fun but its progression would try and get the best of me. Although I saw my life as manageable, It clearly was not. Denial, lying, spending every last penny to get my potion of choice was not manageable. Yes I had a job and family and all the fine things in life but could never see the things I had for what they were due to the haze I was in. The doctors told me if I continued to drink it would kill me, Two episodes of seizures and hallucinations while trying to quit on my own still did not save me. I am not here to preach but to share my experience strength and hope?and that is; until I found the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous I was powerless and could not manage my life. I am 5 months sober now back on my feet working, contributing to society and happy. Although my rock bottom was not as severe as many peoples it still stands as a testimony that we are all searching for the strength and power to defeat our addictions. And without the help of others it is a difficult path. I am thankful for those who stood by me in the hopes I would one day follow a new path ( day by day ) and thankful a higher power has given me a new lease on life. Don't be afraid to ask for help, it just might save your life.

Who's idea was it to put obvious drug references on a t-shirt? It's like when Sony made that advertisement for their white PSP by having a white woman attacking a black woman. They should have known it would cause racial controversey, and as for Nike, what were they thinking?

Take it down. It sends the wrong message. Does Nike support smoking pot? Do they think kids should just do it? Irresponsible.
