” I got sober to save my life.when I did I found my soul.I am not ashamed to be an addict in recovery. I have worked hard for my sobriety. I can’t change my past but my future is in my hands.I walk this road with my head held high.I spent a lifetime in hell and it only took me twelve steps to get to heaven. Don’t judge or look at my past too hard….I don’t live there anymore. I am strong today because I know my weakness. I am beautiful because I am aware of my flaws. I am fearless because I learn to recognize illusion from real. I am wiser because I have learnt from my mistakes. I am a lover because I have felt hate and I can laugh because I have know sadness.sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of our life.Tip toe if you must but take a step.”
