I started getting high when I was 15 years old. By the age of 28 I had pretty much ruined myself. Having hit an all time low I was finally ready for a change and a big part of that process was the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. I had no idea what this process had to offer. Not only did I get sober, I have learned to build an incredible life for myself. I’ve learned to create exactly the environment I want with very few of the things I don’t want. I believe that anyone can accomplish anything in this life, and I believe that the 12 step process helps us lay the foundation for who we wan to become. It’s about relationships. The relationship we each have with ourselves, and the relationships we have with others. Once we understand how to function in every relationship in the moment we’re in, our potential for having the exact life we want is limitless.

This is universal. We all engage in self destructive behavior for the purpose of escaping when we aren’t clear on how to deal with life. In alcoholics and drug addicts this phenomenon is more pronounced, but I believe it exists within each and every one of us. The solution is a method that shows us how to reach the power that is both within and without every single one of us. It is a power greater than any human power. Read the secret and it is called “The Universe”. Watch star wars and they call it “The Force”. There are many versions of this and names for it. The 12 step method teaches us to develop our own personal understanding of a power greater than ourselves.

This blog will demonstrate my personal journey in this process and hopefully help and inspire others in the process.
