    Into The Alcoholic Pit And Emerging

    If anyone has described concisely his descent into alcoholism, I have yet to hear it. Words to describe the hopelessness, helplessness and hellishness of that downward spiral still elude me. Also as elusive are the words to describe recovery, emerging from the fog and seeing...

    The last thing you should loose in life is hope.

    I have hope that tomorrow will be a better day and that I'll look back at this sour time in my life and be able to take this as a lesson.

    Why My Story Doesn't End Now.

    Why do I go to the gym? Cause that’s my only time where I go outside with a purpose. And I only go outside when I do have a purpose. I now have a rocking body but I still don’t have the mindset of someone who does. Why do I spent most of my time behind the PC? Cause there is...
