Let’s hear it for @erin11914 👏🏻 “Today I have 4 years clean and sober. Today I have so much to be thankful for. Today I am alive. Today I thank everyone who has supported me these past 4 years. Today is my day!!! Just for Today: I will make plans, but I will not plan the result & I will trust in my Higher Power's loving care.” #soberlife #sobriety #recovery #recoverystories #sobermovement #soberissexy #partysober #cleanandsober #odaat #onedayatatime #behappywithyourself #behappy #courage #hope #inspiration #inspire #soberaf #support #addictionrecovery #bethechange #wedorecover #sobersince #transformation #beforeandafter #beforeandafterphoto #skab365 #recoverycommunity
WHO DOES SHE THINK SHE IS? Does that thought stop you from GOING ALL IN on your life? Real or fancied you believe “they” think it. Or maybe they SAY it to you. Fakk ‘em. SHOW them who you are. Some of them will likely try to tear you down. Only so they don’t have to face their own fears of rising up. Shine your light, R I S E up to your potential. Chase + l i v e your dreams. Do the things. Start today. u n l e a s h — y o u r — s o u l The same people that you imagine may think (or actually say) it. Who does she think she is — or — who does he think he is? Are the ones who will later ask you… How did you do those things? HOW DID YOU BREAK FREE?! Or they’ll just cyber stalk you 😉 Don’t worry about what “they” think of you. Spend your energy on what YOU think of you. Then be prepared. For “them” to ask you. How you did it. Because everyone wants to live their best life. To rise up into their potential. To be themselves. 💜

Let’s hear it for our #sobersaturday feature Matt @wight__shadow 👏🏻 “I’m Matt. I spent most of my adult life running from my problems with drugs and alcohol. I had been in trouble with the law many times, and finally I was sent to a Department of Corrections treatment facility for six months. I learned to be accountable for my actions and to live each day responsibly and with purpose. I just celebrated 2 years clean on 10/22/18 and am starting my internship to become an addictions counselor this week. I am grateful to your page, as you always inspire me on the days that I need some extra help.” #soberlife #sobriety #recovery #recoverystories #sobermovement #soberissexy #partysober #cleanandsober #odaat #onedayatatime #behappywithyourself #behappy #courage #hope #inspiration #inspire #soberaf #support #addictionrecovery #bethechange #wedorecover #sobersince #transformation #beforeandafter #beforeandafterphoto #skab365 #recoverycommunity

Let’s hear it for @stacey4416 👏🏻 “My addiction of Meth and heroin took me to many bottoms and In December of 2014 I was airlifted to the hospital and had to have open heart surgery. I had endocarditis, which is vegetation of the heart caused by being a junkie. It’s literally a direct result of shooting up. I was 29 years old. I had to undergo total of 3 massive and extensive surgeries, was read my last rights, and my friends and family started to plan my funeral. Nobody thought I was going to make it! I spent almost 4 months in the hospital, and once I got out I realized there was a reason I had been given the gift of another chance at life, and found my way to NA! My clean date is 4/28/15 The life that I have lived in this 3.5 +years is truly “my best life!” There is so much tangible evidence of an intangible power greater then myself at work and I am so grateful to be in a place where I can not only see it, but feel it around me! God has a way of showing himself to me to remind me to keep going. This is my life’s passion, this is what I live for! To give hope to the hopeless! To show people what a mess I once was, and if I can do it, ANYONE can. I know I am lucky to be alive and believe that with my second chance at life, I have a purpose. For that reason I choose to break my anonymity! I am a grateful recovering addict! If you’re reading this and are an addict, know an addict, or love an addict just know there is a different way out there. Change is possible. Resources are limited but are slowly getting better. There are many different fellowships, 1800 numbers and websites all offering help. Find a meeting. Raise your hand, and ask for help, God will do the rest!” #soberlife #sobriety #recovery #recoverystories #sobermovement #soberissexy #partysober #cleanandsober #odaat #onedayatatime #behappywithyourself #behappy #courage #hope #inspiration #inspire #soberaf #support #addictionrecovery #bethechange #wedorecover #sobersince #transformation #beforeandafter #beforeandafterphoto #skab365 #recoverycommunity

Midnightpoem. Well I have been doing this for a whole month now. 22 days out of the last 30. I was aiming for 20 out of 30 😊I am challenging the story that I can’t draw. Evidently, I can draw and it is getting easier and easier each time I do it. I didn’t start off this commitment to draw. I started this to give myself some sacred time each day to intentionally write a poem about what was going on for me that day. I have been having a rough time with my health and creating has always been my medicine. Things are still a bit wobbly and we did a team building exercise today whereby another team member tells you what they think your strengths are. I was the first to be the receiver and the first thing my person told me was that I am inspiring. Me and the “I” word have a bumpy history. I am really uncomfortable with people telling me that I inspire them. I always smile and although I am honoured by the compliment, I struggle tremendously to receive it fully. I am working on it 😊#midnightpoem #poem #poetry #doodle #doodling #progressingfromstickfigures #breakingoldstories #hiddentalents #developingtalents #undercoveringtalents #theliar #impostorsyndrome #survivor #capitalttruths #truthprevails #receiving #inpires #iinspire #owningit #confusinghumilitywithselfdoubt #acceptingcompliments #mentalhealth #mentalhealthrecovery #recoverystories #coaching #peertopeer #peerwork #joy #passion #purpose
Happy launch day to the fantastic @ruth_foxy , whose memoir, Within the White Lines is already changing lives. Find out why by getting your copy at bit.ly/withinthewhitelines ⚽
THIS IS WHY YOU’RE AFRAID TO BE ALONE 😬 . Maybe you… Use male / female attention as a hit. Super achieve to “prove” your worthiness. Shoot for perfectionism to pull in a sense of love. Cling to toxic relationships even though they are crushing your spirit. Stay in a job that is sucking your soul dry. Eat chips in your car so nobody sees. Let your friends walk all over you. Say yes when you mean no. . You pay this big price because… . Fakk. Take a breath.. . YOU’RE AFRAID OF YOURSELF. This is nuts. 🙊 . There’s nothing to be afraid of. You’re totally lovable. . Yet you’re afraid to be alone. You’re not alone in this though. A lot of people share your fear. . You suffer from loneliness. Because.. . You. Don’t… . Love yourself. . I know because I’ve been there. For decades. . There was a specific time in my sobriety where I shifted this. . This is what I NOW know for sure. . YOU ARE SO FREAKING LOVABLE 🔥❤️ . You’re perfect as you are in THIS MOMENT You’ve got nothing to prove. No love to earn. It’s what you are. A soul inside a body. It’s not possible for anything to be wrong with you. And of freaking course Y O U -- A R E -- E N O U G H. . Yea ya intellectually you may see this TRUTH. But HOW can you LIVE from this place? A place of total worthiness. Radical self love. Acceptance. . How can you break free from toxic relationships. Place and hold solid boundaries. Speak your truth. . And overcome your fear of yourself. . Your fear of being alone. With the AMAZINGNESS that is you. The BRIGHT LIGHT and sparkly soul that you are. . Join us in The I'm ALL IN Tribe This is exactly what I teach about in there. Our *live* training broadcasts from the group tomorrow. It’s in 24 hours (or catch the replay) Link to join is in bio. You don’t want to miss this. Grab you friends. Some popcorn. It’s on. . Xx Kir .

Let’s hear it for Hannah @hannahlee_112 who celebrated 4 years in recovery yesterday! 👏🏻 “On the left is me on the first day of my last rehab, string out on heroin, hopeless, thinking I would die with a needle in my arm. On the right is me today, four years in recovery! I’m finishing my prerequisites for nursing school, I’m a mother, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, and a friend. Thank you to God and to the 12 steps, today I am four years free!” #soberlife #sobriety #recovery #recoverystories #sobermovement #soberissexy #partysober #cleanandsober #odaat #onedayatatime #behappywithyourself #behappy #courage #hope #inspiration #inspire #soberaf #support #addictionrecovery #bethechange #wedorecover #sobersince #transformation #beforeandafter #beforeandafterphoto #skab365 #recoverycommunity

Let’s hear it for one of my hometown friends @justin_racette1 👏🏻 I’m really proud of this guy! Justin says, “My sobriety date is December 26,2014. It is an absolute miracle how my life has changed since that day! My drug of choice was heroin. I reach out to try and share my story to other people struggling in the grips of addiction that there is hope and it is possible. I went from living a normal high school kids life to living on the streets of Boston in cardboard boxes. My addiction has taken me places I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy. During that time I had overdosed twice as a direct result of my substance abuse. Getting to points in my life where sometimes I felt like I was better off dead. I had felt no purpose and had accepted the fact that this was the way I was going to live for the rest of my life. It was on that Christmas in 2014 that I had realized I had hit absolute rock bottom and needed to attempt to make a change. With the help of my family and friends I went into treatment the next day and never turned back. My life has changed so dramatically in the last 4 years it’s an absolute miracle! I am a loving and caring father,son and boyfriend. I have amazing people in my life that I can be there for today. I am so grateful I have had the opportunity to live this life that I know so many of us struggling deserve! I hope that someone can relate to my story. There is hope and it is possible to turn your life around for the best even when you think it’s over. Thank you for giving me a chance to share my story. This is what it’s all about you are never alone we are in this together!!!” #soberlife #sobriety #recovery #recoverystories #sobermovement #soberissexy #partysober #cleanandsober #odaat #onedayatatime #behappywithyourself #behappy #courage #hope #inspiration #inspire #soberaf #support #addictionrecovery #bethechange #wedorecover #sobersince #transformation #beforeandafter #beforeandafterphoto #skab365 #recoverycommunity
We talked about sadness and new beginnings in our MRT meeting today. Today, we don’t have to run from our feelings. We can talk about them, process them and find solutions OR just accept our feelings FEEL OUR FEELINGS for what they are – today. Without causing harm to ourselves or others.

Let’s hear it for @rachlea2 👏🏻 “November 3, 2018, is a celebration of 7 years of my sobriety! My life has been quite the adventurous journey, and I thank God I am alive each day. I was known to have "9 lives" because of the destructive life I lived back in my using days. Hiding alcohol, drinking until blacked out, waking up in strange places and embarrassed was normal for me. After finally surrendering and accepting I was indeed a very sad, depressed, lonely alcoholic I recieved help by the grace of God and family. Angels protected me during the rollercoaster of emotions and sadness, but continues to protect me from my demons... I am grateful to be alive with becoming a nurse, being a loving wife and mom to two beautiful children. My husband has shown me what unconditional love is about and loves me for me. #7yearssober#soberlife #sobriety #recovery #recoverystories #sobermovement #soberissexy #partysober #cleanandsober #odaat #onedayatatime #behappywithyourself #behappy #courage #hope #inspiration #inspire #soberaf #support #addictionrecovery #bethechange #wedorecover #sobersince #transformation #beforeandafter #beforeandafterphoto #skab365 #recoverycommunity #motivationmonday

After a spectacularly shit week, I’ve come to London on business and stopped off in Foyles. Seeing a book on the shelves that I’ve worked so hard on made things a bit better. (Reader, I bought it.)
Good morning..moment of clarity was a myth to me..until i had mine..within these walls..alone in a jail cell..can't tell you exactly what happened but i felt a seismic shift..a cataclysmic event had taken place within me..i walked outta there on November 5th, 2016 with every intention of becoming the man I was always meant to be..it's no coincidence since quitting alcohol and drugs I haven't been in handcuffs..trays up?

Let’s hear it for @beachbum36511 👏🏻 “I'm Michelle, I'm 2.5 years in recovery off Heroin! 💜 When I was 17 I became an IV drug user. I didn't have parents & was depressed. For 7 years I was a slave to opiates. May 2016, I caught a trafficking charge, I faced 10years in prison. I never had any drug charges so I freaked out. I got pregnant a month after I was on bond. It saved my life. A guy took my charges so my case was dismissed and I never touched anything after that. Today, I have a beautiful 18month old daughter. I am marrying a guy that took me away from that life May 26, 2019. We bought a new Lexus, building a big house next year, have a great job, going to church& counseling every month. Life is SO MUCH BETTER. I'm so glad I saw the positive in my negative experiences😍” #soberlife #sobriety #recovery #recoverystories #sobermovement #soberissexy #partysober #cleanandsober #odaat #onedayatatime #behappywithyourself #behappy #courage #hope #inspiration #inspire #soberaf #support #addictionrecovery #bethechange #wedorecover #sobersince #transformation #beforeandafter #beforeandafterphoto #skab365 #recoverycommunity #sobersunday

Sometimes, Fridays are tough. It’s the end of a long week and we’re tired. We may wonder what we have accomplished this week other than to have survived it –especially if we survived it without the comfort and relief found in an addiction. Addiction is defined as “the fact or condition of being addicted to a particular substance, thing, or activity.” Whether that addiction is drugs, alcohol, gambling, busyness, binge-watching Netflix, cigarettes, shopping or food. It doesn’t matter. It is all a distraction and a denial of our real feelings. Seeking a life that we don’t want to escape is the ultimate goal of our recovery. Keep imagining your dream life in recovery. Not romanticizing your addiction. Addiction takes you nowhere. Recovery will take you everywhere in life you want to go. Whatever you do, just don’t give up. . . . #recovery #addictionrecovery #recoverywarrior #recoveroutloud #recoverystories #recoveryworks #recoveryisworthit #recoveryispossible #selftalk #selfworth #selfesteem #endstigma #drugfree #keepfighting #sober #soberissexy
Yeah I think nothing can help you through tough times as well as self love. I got a lesson this week - I had a slight relapse. Not all relapses are the same, some are just temporary - those are great reminders that just because we feel better, we can’t stop taking care of ourselves. I had two of these nudges this week - first my body broke down after eating a lot of unhealthy stuff and not looking after myself properly, then my mind due to stretching myself too thin and pushing myself hard. I had an episode which made me very desperate and inpatient at the time. “Am I ever going to get better?” I cried to my therapist who calmly explained that I’ve come a long way, accomplished a lot, dealt with some very difficult life situations and I’m all the better and stronger for it. She also reminded me that dealing with trauma is a life long process. Similarly to substance addicts, recovery is a decision that I have to make every day. It’s so easy to make the mistake of loosening grip on self care and letting things go when we feel ok. But BPD - like it or not (not, hate it actually but I don’t have a choice) - is a life long partner. We have a choice of letting it go and relapsing for good or keep on going, using the tactics we learnt in therapy, taking our meds, doings the daily self care things that make us happy and stable. We can never stop any of this, relapse lurks around us all the time and can come out of nowhere at the most unexpected moments. #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #bpd #recoveryispossible #recoveryisworthit #selflove #selfcare #bpdlife #bpdrecovery #bpdthoughts #bpdwarrior #bpdmemes #bpdstruggles #bpdthings #bpdstory #emotionallyunstablepersonalitydisorder #personalitydisorder #mentalillness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #recoverystories #recoverystory #recoveryispossible #stopthestigma #recoveryisworthit #bpdawareness #bpdsupport #bpdfam #stopthestigma #borderline

Let’s hear it for @samijoee 👏🏻 “Three years sober on nov.2/18. I am truly blessed to be alive today. Before I quit drinking I wanted to die. I hated myself, I was emotionally damaged. I thought I was worthless. The moment I decided to turn my life over to my higher power, stop consuming alcohol my whole life changed so positively. I’m grateful for everyone that has supported my journey. I’m grateful for 12 step programs. I am so happy I never gave up and work on my recovery daily. Recovery is so rewarding full of ups and downs. Life hasn’t been all easy since getting sober but it has helped me deal with situations instead of drowning In a bottle. I share my story through my experience, strength and hope. And take life on day at a time.” #soberlife #sobriety #recovery #recoverystories #sobermovement #soberissexy #partysober #cleanandsober #odaat #onedayatatime #behappywithyourself #behappy #courage #hope #inspiration #inspire #soberaf #support #addictionrecovery #bethechange #wedorecover #sobersince #transformation #beforeandafter #beforeandafterphoto #skab365 #recoverycommunity

Forgiveness. I did not realize how much mentally it was holding me back. Impacting my life. I did not know I had to intentionally and purposely forgive myself or someone else to move forward. For me, saying my resentment out loud is acknowledging that it is there - not denying its existence - and that I want it gone. That I want change. To feel better. Acknowledging my true feelings is a step of willingness in the direction of my own peace. . . . #recovery #forgive #forgiveness #peace #recoverywarrior #recoveroutloud #recoverystories #sober #sobermovement #inspire #inspiration #empower

First pic: 7/31/2018, peak addiction Second pic: 10/30/18, 2 months sober While I’ve been off certain substances such as crack/meth for some time now, I still was attached to other hard drugs. I was constantly doing Xanax, adderall, morphine, Molly, XOs, and my biggest issue - cocaine. Most of my money went to coke and my usage became a personality trait, which is never a good thing. The last time I did coke, I had no intention to stop. I realized a week later that my sleeve could be done by now so I invested my money in that instead of an eight ball. A week after that, I had a life changing conversation with someone I love dearly about using again. I opened my eyes and saw how much I accomplished without uppers/downers. In two months, I have filmed 4 scenes, I am consistently earning an income from sex work, started working out/eating better, and hustle for my dream future. For anyone struggling with addiction, if I can do it, you can too. I believed I was going to be still using cocaine in my 50s. But I’m halfway to 21 and leaving it behind forever ❤️
