Flushed Drugs Getting Fish High

Flushed Drugs Getting Fish High

  Imagine fish, aggressively swimming, and hyper, anti-social-even getting the munchies. It sounds comical, almost made up; unfortunately, it’s not.

Step Nine: Moving from Apologies to Amends

Step Nine: Moving from Apologies to Amends

  I recently started working on my ninth step.  My sponsor and I went over the Twelve and Twelve’s chapter on step 9 and then discussed the importance of the amends process and how they differ from the standard “I’m sorry” apology.  She stressed that I generally should avoid the term “sorry.”  I found that odd at first, because I had thought that essentially was the point of the ninth step, to admit our fault through … Read entire article »

Obtaining and Keeping a Job While in Sobriety

Obtaining and Keeping a Job While in Sobriety

  After a busy day of writing articles and holding responsibilities at my job from one to five, I go home sit on the couch and crack open a nice refreshing Coors Light.  No just kidding, I crack open a nice refreshing Diet Coke, so much more of a pleasant and thirst quenching refreshment.  Before I got sober, getting totally blitzed after work was my everyday lifestyle.  Now having a job in sobriety has changed my … Read entire article »
