The Dark Place
Drinking to feel more "alive."
Smoking weed to "relax."
Using psychedelics to be "spiritual."
Taking drugs to kill the "pain" of everyday living.
These are the greatest lies ever told.
There is nothing more alive than clawing our way out of a deep hole - sober, naked and shaking, and suddenly feeling the warmth of sunlight on skin. It is time to fully embrace the miracle of standing on the earth for a precious, limited time. Life is a gift we must accept in every moment of every day in our lives.
Recovering addicts and alcoholics are heroes, especially those who return to the void and help others escape.
