From the ashes

Sometimes I wonder why I put myself out there for the world to see. Yeah, I’m an alcoholic, big deal. Who cares.

A firefighter e-mailed me last week. Before becoming one of us, he was brought back to life by firefighters after he overdosed. He’s four years clean now, and taking things one day at a time, just like me.

He said I gave him strength.

I guess that’s why.

Never Forget.

    I believe if you help but one person on the road to recovery then your shared experience has worth. In this situation you were given a unique opportunity to receive honest feedback on how you influenced not only another human being but a peer. What a blessing. May he pay it forward.
