RECOVERY CAN BE SO SINK OR SWIM (Don't be Fooled! Pictured is SINK!)


Nothing was easy about early Recovery for me. I was drowning in Alcohol and yet it seemed to me like Alcohol was necessary for my Survival. I could not imagine how I could possibly live without it.

SINK OR SWIM. Addiction is DECEPTION with a Capital D (I chose ALL CAPS! lol).

Sometimes it seemed like ONLY ALCOHOL could make it better BUT it ALWAYS MADE IT WORSE.

SINK OR SWIM. It's so Yada, Yada, Yada, but yet and still. Your Drink. Your Drug. Whatever it is. Please do not be Deceived as I once was, on-the-Wagon/off-the-Wagon, for eight (8) not-so-solid years of Perpetual Relapse. 

Do as I say, not as I DID, DID, DID.

Float your Boat in the Sea of Recovery. No other Liquid (Or Solid, Or Gas!) will be smooth sailing. No matter how troubling and difficult Life on Life's Terms may seem, Experience has shown me that Addiction was NEVER on my Terms, no matter how much it may have seemed that way.



Not every picture is worth a thousand words, but maybe now (if you've read this far), THIS ONE IS.

(PICTURED is SINK. Don't be Fooled)

Addiction is DECEPTIVE. 

Swim. Swim. Swim.

  1. Cunning Baffling Powerful. (Period). End of sentence. Swimming is like riding a bike.? You Never forget But it helps to practice, as it lessens the chance of falls and drowning. Too Many lives lost. Jails Institutions Death. Period.
