Time takes a hold of you and does as it pleases. Something finally forces you to stop and when you check yourself, a year has gone by!

September has always had A LOT going on for many people. It’s the end of the summer, school starts up again, you get to “reset” back at your job as the world remembers 9/11.

“Sex, Drugs and Rock n Roll” is a term that millions of us are familiar with whether you experienced it or not. Today, “Recovery” is a term more widely used than ever before and at the same time, what does it really mean?

The Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) currently defines it as “A process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self- directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.” I like that.

In fourth grade, I was stealing candy from the corner shop, and since that wasn’t enough to satisfy my sugar fix, I was gorging myself with spoon fulls of orange drink mix dipped in milk.

In fifth grade, I started experimenting with smoking rolled up leaves that I would pick up in the park on the way home.

My father used to make wine and I started going down to the wine cellar and taking sips, at times straight from the barrel.

Just a few weeks ago, the beloved Chris Cornell, world renowned voice of the 90’s grunge movement committed suicide. I was crushed as my own life flashed before my eyes.

In 2008, I left my I.D. and wallet at my family’s home while I walked 5 miles through fields and woodlands and climbed the north end of a Western European castle, walking on the ledge at its highest point contemplating the step off.
