Stripping away the rose colored glasses of denial concerning my reality. Getting in touch with truth. Reaching out to others in empathy concerning their reality and their walk to truth.

Celebrating 23 years!

I 'loved' alcohol and drugs. I did. I did.  No, I was addicted. But I was considered a 'productive member' of society so who cared if I was bashed half of the time? Bashed and yet looking for the next dose of something. That's is until one Christmas I found myself calling 'round to see what, if anything, my friends had for me to use. That was the beginning of a downward spiral that stopped October 5, 1989.

This year on the fifth I will celebrate 23 years being 'clean and sober'. I earned my chair at the meetings I chose to attend. It is one of the greatest moments for me... more important that my 'navel' birthday! No regrets.

My wish is that everyone has a chance to challenge and change things that hold them back.  The very best to us all.

Jaye Nolan... Britain's Got Talent # 3

Hello. Today's post is something I don't normally do. My usual blah contains the essence of me, me, and more me. And I suppose maybe I am doing a bit of the same thing... because I like this lady's spirit and work. Jaye has allowed me to post her recent interview. Give a listen if you will. For those of you who live in Great Britain there are lots of opportunities headed your way... with Jaye!
