Tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of my freedom from alcohol and drug addiction and the bondage that goes with it. I have also been free from sexual relations and have stopped taking depression and pain medications. My last two strongholds are down to nicotine and caffeine, and I know with support we can smash those as well.
To credit one man, one fellowship or one recovery meeting would be unfair. To say I did it on my own willpower without God would be stupid. The fact is I have a long track record of being consistently inconsistent. When left to my own devices, I always return to the things of this world that make myself feel better to ease the pain, suffering and lonely nights.
I am telling you, thank you. You are everywhere I go. Your advice, support, prayers and huge smiles have repeatedly given me strength when I was ready to give up.
In this New Year, 2014, I hope to repay the love of my brothers and sisters in the city I have lived in for over 50 years.
