Jim Hernandez works hard to give back in recovery.  He gives to the homeless, he podcasts, he walks the walk every single day and does so happily.  That isn't to say that he hasn't had his fair share of setbacks, relapses, and struggles.  He's been homeless, he's nearly died, he's, well, you'll see.

Tom was a late bloomer when it came to drinking and drugging.  Tom drank and dabbled, until he met heroin.  His life was taken over, he landed in jail, and lost his way.

Tom is a friend of mine.  I am so proud of him.  He fought his way back and is now free from heroin.  Tom's unique approach to sobriety allows him to drink without the threat of a heroin relapse. 

My friend earned his way, he fought hard, he won the fight.  I am...
