MY CLEAN DATE 10/26/13


I was thinking today about my struggle to get and stay clean and I found this post in my drafts. I made a short list of every time I came back into recovery since the first time I tried to get clean back in 2011. There are some dates missing but this will give you a general idea of how I struggled.

I decided to share it with everyone because I just want you to know that although it was not easy for me to get clean.

I NEVER GAVE UP TRYING.

JUST FOR TODAY BY GOD’S GRACE I HAVE 1 YEAR, 4 MONTHS AND 1 DAY CLEAN.

If you are feeling like you cannot get clean, take it from me YOU CAN DO IT. Just never quit trying. I felt the same way. My road was long and hard. It is still hard but it has gotten a lot easier since I stopped using. I am grateful to all those who stuck by me and are still standing by me today. I could never have made it this far without you.

Thank you.

The struggle is real, getting clean was the best thing that has ever happened to me. I have been blessed to live 2 life’s in 1.

My mission is to give back what was so freely given to me. One day at a time.

Peace and Blessings
