Do we stay down? At one point I had nearly a decade clean and sober. I was the only one in this place trying to keep a positive attitude. I mean, it was time to get back on my feet again. I was soooo done living the life of hopeless opiate addict—surviving from fix to fix and constantly running from the agonizing pain of withdrawal, that dark cloud that looms over anyone hooked on the milk of the poppy.

Sometimes in life we lose our way. Problems it seems, like to run in packs. We all understand at least at some level that our problems are blessings in disguise.

Grandma told us that one. Treat it like a buffet. Live as if you were living a second time, and as though you had acted wrongly the first time. Just look at all the celebrities who have all the money, sex, fame and power they could ever want, yet are so whacked-outta-their-minds-miserable they commit suicide or overdose on drugs.

And because of that, I self-destructed the outside. I actually got everything I wanted, everything I visualized, I got it. I was a good little manifester. Whatever is, IS… Look it in the eye and make peace with it.

Until that is, you accept it. Then the situation no longer has power over you. Accept it, take any necessary actions, and move on.

It may be for awhile, we all have a good run every now and then, but sooner or later, we meet our match and take a beating in the alley out behind Club Good Times. When we are no longer able to change a situation — we are challenged to change ourselves.

They should start small, instilling new positive habits and stacking one on top of another, increasing workload and decreasing junk food and extra calories.

A few genetically gifted OCD types might, but most would be doomed. And I stayed that way for the better part of a decade, building up a nice little life for myself: But at somewhere about 5 or 6 years clean, I traded my drug addiction for a making money addiction.

A common trap for a lot of men.

And then, the unthinkable happened. After a year or so of living in utter despairI knew I had to get clean and put my life back together. I had to start over. Too elitist, too many rules, and not enough room for free thinking. Just like some people people prefer yoga, while other prefer jogging, or bodybuilding, or powerlifting, or CrossFit or Zumba.

And some people like all that shit. I even heard Louie Simmons is gonna start offering Zumba at Westside Barbell, to help his guys open up their hip complex so they can hit bigger lifts.

Nothing like watching lb powerlifters with big bellies, shaved heads, goatees and sleeve tattoos rocking a Zumba class. Maybe Slayer should release an album of nothing but Zumba songs.

With that said about religion, it not being my thing and all, the first step I took to get back on my feet was to pray with everything in me, basically asking whatever created me and is running the show here, something I have no conceptual understanding of, to PLEASE help me get clean.

Next, I checked myself into a detox. This just added to the fun. Once I went through with the withdrawals, got the drugs outta my system and attained physical sobriety, I got involved into 12 step program.
