Freedom from the Bondage of Addiction

Typically I will write one Blog in a day but the first today is more of a thought provoker and news story.  This is primarily a recovery blog that I attempt to look at the bright side of the recovered life.  Hope!  When I look back at my life before recovery and in recovery the word “Hope” consumes me.  I was in chains, I could not make any productive decisions in my life for the fear of my unpredictability.  When I was 18 years old, my father was giving me the lecture about work and growing up.  My mother chimed in, your father can get you a job at Grumman, Grumman was the largest employer on Long Island at the time.

I remember saying to my mother, I don’t want it because if I screw it up and I will I will never be able to get a good job again!  I knew inside of me that I could not handle responsibility or commitment.  I could not grow up as they put it.  That is the bondage of addiction.  Today I am grateful that I do not live in the bondage of addiction!  The recovered life is the life of freedom.  I love life and enjoy life in the good and the bad!

Go, Go, Go…
