Today is 22 days since the last joint I smoked. I’m beyond thankful for the journey that I have begun. The peace in my heart is surreal. The joy on my face is pure.
I white-knuckled being alcohol-free for 2 years, but during those two years, I was abusing marijuana daily. I thought I was using it for medicinal for my depression, but I fucking kid you not, it was a brutal full-blown addiction that I was spending $500 a month on. I traded addictions and found zero peace. I wanted to die when I was using.
Not anymore! 22 days and never shutting the door on the journey. I’m keeping it open because I want to be reminded of the dark days that I made out alive.
Sobriety is changing me inside and out and I couldn’t be more thankful.
Thank you, God, my higher power for giving me the serenity I need to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
