Recovering Meth

Recovering Meth

"Being a meth addict is something I ain't proud of but, ain't ashamed to admit it either." A 12 year addiction came to an end August 26th, 2019. Homeless. Defeated & hopeless. Rock bottom right, right? Add congestive heart failure from all the drugs I had consumed. Now that's my bottom. What can I say, "I'm a straight up tweaker." I just chose not to die from my addiction. This is my recovery from meth. My journey to a life with hope. Faith. Above all else, a life not dependent on substance. Straight up. visit recoveringmeth.com facebook.com/recoveringmeth twitter.com/MethRecovering email: ken@recoveringmeth.com

Self-condemning is one thing that I still struggle with today. My actions, my thoughts, what I've said or didn't, are all very deceiving when it comes to fueling the shame and guilt that lead to my self-condemning. I find comfort in the phrase "progress not perfection". Most of all, I am a Child of God and I find strength and comfort in His word. Knowing that I am forgiven is supremely what helps me overcome my sel...

Grinding and grinding. Working and working. When was the last time you got some rest? Not sleep, but actual rest. In most cases, it's a lot easier said than done.

I have to always remember that I am on the journey of recovery and must, get myself the rest that I need. When we keep going and going, the wh...

During my addiction, I know I wasn't living life, but moreso, just going through the motions. I wasn't able to recognize the blessings I had. I powerlessness I still have.

I am able to rrecognize that I am strong because I can admit that I am powerless over things. Meth and alcohol are definitely some of the thing...
