( ALTERNATE PREFACE: FUNCTIONING MAIN TEXT )

Hello O

riginally I had every intention of writing in a very authoritative style, with a measure of assertion and assurance. I would put words to paper and display a unique understanding of addiction previously overlooked. Readers will read my writing, I thought, and start to overflow with hope and motivation and determination. I’d find it difficult to believe we don’t all have that perspective at times. As confident as I might be in the lessons I’ve learned before during and after my rock bottom, it would be a disservice to you if I presented myself in such a light. More effective, and this seems obvious but isnt, is complete honesty.

My knowledge has its gaps in some aress. There are inherent uneven in stretches througought my expertise. As is the case with every other human, I avoid being vulnerable. If given the option, bright unflattering light or shade, I’m heading for shade. My hope is, despite whatever knowledge or perspective you glean from these experiences, the act of baring all, of holding back nothing, impacts more. Best of Luck.

YOU ARE DEALING WITH SYMPTOMS OF A DISEASE. THIS IS THE SINGLE MOST DIFFICULT ASPECT TO KEEP IN THE FOREFRONT WHEN NAVIGATING THROUGH ADDICTION. THE RELAPSING, THE STEALING, THE LYING - ALL OF IT - IS THE RESULT OF DYSFUNCTIONAL BIOLOGY. LIKE ANY OTHER CONDITION, DIAS`BETES, HEART MURMOR, ALZHIEMERS, SOME PART OF OUR HUMAN ANATONY IS NOT OPERATING AS INTENDED, PANCREAS, HEART, BRAIN. IN THE CASE OF ADDICTION, THE FRONTAL LOBE OF THE BRAIN, THE PORTION RESPONSIBLE FO JUDGEMENT, MORALITY, BEHAVIOR, IS AFFLICTED.

ARE YOU IN THERE

FTEN I WOULLD TELL OTHERS, THE FATAL-MOST FEATURE OF BLACK IS NOT POTENCY, OR CRIME, ETC.… ITS MOMENTUM. HEROIN ACHIEVES DEADLY SPEEDS OVERNIGHT AND UNNOTICED. IT TURNS SUCCESS INTO SHAME, HOPE INTO BROKEN HEARTS. A COUNTRY IS A COLLECTION OF LIVES, AND IS IN WAVES AND SWELLS. A TURNING POINT HAS BEEN REACHED IN THE TWENTY-TEENS WHEN A LARGE ENOUGH POPULATION ABOVE THE POVERTY LINE

presence is more easily igonared whenisolatied or self segregated. They shine much less bright without a healthy funactioning circle of peers. When you want something you’ve never had, you will have to do what you have never done if it is ever to be attained. If you fear the trespass of your longest held, most sacred boundary; if you give pause when pushed to its threshold and fail to cross the line, you will never learn the extent to which you are capable of going. **w** The new year had still it’s new shiney coating, it’s fresh scent of optimism, of unrestricted possibility when I was nearing the end of my collision course. Struck down from high atop pink clouds*, I set in motion a sequence of events upon impact with my Bottom Rock. I fell asleep in Mom’s driveway on my way home from a multi day bender. Black and meth, the standard regimen I was administering myself at the time. Leav-

ing the house for her daily errands she immediately found her son, me, passed out in the driver seat, foil and black strewn recklessly about. She threw open the car door waking me in an instant. A toxic surge of adrenaline, of dread, of terror, of embarrassment flooded my system. Time was passing in microns, in milliseconds, but it was time enough for me to recognize how truly fucked I was. We would cry without end.We would discuss with delicate touch the range of my addiction. attempt to find some sort of way forward. A testament to her sainthood, my mother began attending NARNON* meetings the following day. I, with measured apprehension, agreed to enter a treatment facility*. And so began the narrative at hand, the story of this addicts recovery, the intangible obstacles faced, the wisdom gained, and various tid bits and whatnots. -
