I only wish you could save me As much as I want to save you. But I know in the real world I am just some stupid girl. But you threw away your chance, Last night was our last dance. When did this all stop being fun? I only wish you could save me, As much as I want to save you.
One of our clients wrote a beautiful poem about her recovery journey — with her permission we publish it here to spread some HOPE. I was high as the sky Under an illusion I had wings and could fly. But in truth I was merely a lifeless mannequin detached from reality Governed by the voices of my own insanity. I tried to take control but all it did was make the chaos escalate Robbing, dealing, violence, guns -nothing I could premeditate. In an empty room with a pipe, masschette and broken down door I sat nonchalantly on the floor. My skinny broken face staring in the mirror thinking How I was on a descent to madness and my existence was slowly shrinking.
Yesterday Today and Tomorrow
October 14, By SoberJulie 19 Comments. This is a poem which is read in many 12 Step meetings around the world. In my early sobriety I clung to the words, weeping my shame from my body…. Today I hope it helps someone reading who feels like the mountain of life looks too large to scale.

Hello Friends today is two years sober, I am filled with gratitude, love and purpose. Day one sober I was laying on a mattress in small apartment with nothing, only the want to be sober. I lost the love of my life and most of my friends. I was filled with self hate, guilt and shame. I knew with every cell in my body that the only way for me to rise from my rock bottom was to stay sober and find a recovery program. My addiction created a lot of chaos that was still alive and surfacing in my early days and months sober.
