Torn up and put away wet. When I walked into Hooper detox January 2nd, 2007, my piss tested positive for alcohol, heroin and cocaine. (And had been for many years). This picture was taken 4 days ago on the 3 year anniversary of my sobriety. See how happy I am? Know how awful it is when you get one of those sharp itches on your back in a place that you can't scratch? That was the first 26 years of my life. Then one day I asked God to reach it and not only did it go away, He promised it'd never come back if I didn't want it to. We have a deal: the more grateful I am for what God gives me, the more God gives me to be grateful for.
