My friends called it, "He just disappeared"
My band called it, "He had so much potential."
My Dad called it,
"Why's he losing so much weight?"
My sisters called it,
"Mom, please, do something."
My mother called it,
"What can I do?"
.
My wife, she was so sweet. She called it, "We'll get through this. Let me help you."
And I called it, "Fuck you, I don't need help. I've got it under control."
But when my daughter called it,
"Whats wrong with my Daddy?"
My wife had called it, "Daddy's sick" one too many times.
And she finally, just called it.
.
I'm not sure what to call, what
happened next, but the phrase
"Downward spiral" comes to mind.
.
And I remembered when I used to call it, "I've got this under control" it's "just Vicodin." It's
"just a little fun." Then,
just Percocet, Oxycodone, OxyContin, Methadone, Morphine, Fentanyl, and
eventually I called it something I
thought I never would...
.
Heroin.
.
The cop called it,
"Mr. Young, step out of the vehicle."
My lawyer called it,
"You'll be lucky if you get a plea."
The judge called it,
"In the case of The State of Oregon vs. Cory Young, I find the
defendant guilty."
.
The words "Convicted felon" are a life sentence, in this country. And at that point, I called it,
"I had so much potential. How in
the fuck did I get here?"
.
Doctors call it "Addiction"
And, at church they call it "Sin"
I have been clean two years,
now. And my desire is that after
reading this, you may be able to call it "Hope" for someone you
love, when you never could
before. But maybe you'll just
call it "Disgusting Junkie" and who could blame you? Before all
this, I used to call it that, too.
.
*Nonfiction* If my writing isn't real, I don't want to write. For the few that are still reading, if you, or someone you love struggles with addiction, there is hope. Don't give up. Feel free to DM me. I am quite literally, an open book.❤️

IG Journaling My Way to a Sober Life || This past weekend, I joined a #Fitbit #WeekendWarriorChallenge. I came in 2nd place! Not too shabby considering the condition of my physical health due to previous alcohol abuse. Today, I’ve already passed my daily goal of 10K steps. By next week, 12K will be my minimum. I’m so proud to be changing my life around. ☺️ Thank you for listening.

This is one of my most favorite podcasts I’ve ever done, because @spirit.burrito has the world’s best energy & she is so easy to flow with - you know when you meet your people and you fall in love instantly? That’s what happened. We go deep because that’s the only way to go in this truth-telling life. Hope you love it and her and the pod just as much as I do. Xo ❤️

NEW EPISODE ALERT! I had the pleasure of interviewing Lara Frazier aka @sillylara earlier this summer. I found this woman on @instagram and was instantly attracted to her unapologetic passion for sobriety and helping others find sobriety. Every time I check out her instagram and read her stuff I am always so empowered and feel so grateful to be a sober woman myself! .
.
If you are interested in learning about sobriety, why sobriety rocks and why Lara got sober, have a listen!! We talk about things that people are not talking about on a public level that often. This girl ROCKS!! Thank you, @sillylara for coming on the show! Listen now in @itunes and in my bio link above. xx

Informação relevante sobre o alcoolismo feminino.

O CISA esclarece: as mulheres são mais suscetíveis aos efeitos do álcool porque apresentam menores níveis das enzimas álcool desidrogenase e aldeído desidrogenase, responsáveis pelo metabolismo do álcool, e por isso ele permanece no corpo da mulher por mais tempo. Além disso, o álcool mistura-se facilmente com a água, e como as mulheres possuem menos água no corpo que os homens, ele fica muito mais concentrado em seu corpo, o que agrava seus efeitos.

Stinkin’ thinkin’! Amazing how we justify our behavior in active addiction. You have to make your recovery as important to your life as your addiction was, and it’s soooo easy to get complacent. I’m certainly guilty of this at times! Cred: @heather.ann.1983
"Being here without you doesn't feel right
His lips are moving and I'm tryna be too nice
He's looking at me but he doesn't have your eyes
Being here without you doesn't feel right
Your song just came on and now it feels hopeless
Jukebox is playing old Guns 'N Roses
I put a dollar in it just like you used to
It's been a while since I thought about you
I wouldn't say it sober
But the truth is coming out
I didn't miss you until now, until now
In my right mind, it's over
But the drinks are talking loud
I didn't miss you until now, until now"
