Dear Sober Me
I know it all may seem a little crazy, but understand that what your doing is fucking amazing..
I know you gotta now fix all the shit you did wrong, it's time to make it right like you knew you would all along..
Let your family finally get to know the real you, besides they are the ones that really love you,the very few..
When times get hard, just remember that you've come so far..
You broke free from the hold that the needle had on you, tell your story and someday save another addict's life I'll bet you do..
Take some time to reconnect with your brothers, because y'all really love and need each other, be sure that you always hug and kiss your grandmother..
Now your gonna have some bad days yes it will be rough, just remember you got this and you gotta stay tough, it's your freedom and sobriety that you've earned because you are enough..
Dont ever be ashamed of being a recovering addict, cause you are badass for getting clean just stay at it..
I know it may feel like you've wasted so many years,but dont cave in and dwell on all of your fears,its ok to show emotion and shed a few tears, please whatever you do dont go to downing liquor and beers, cause the devil will be the only one toasting you cheers..
Take the time to enjoy the simple things in life, like how amazing it is to wake up each morning and not want to die..
Ain't it nice to not waste time chasing the nope..
It's ok if you now see a needle and quickly look away, just breath and I promise your going to be ok..
Make sure that you thank god for every new day that you get to live, because against all odds you actually did beat it and be damn proud that you did..
Hold your head up and never look down,your one of the lucky ones that gets to turn your life around..
Keep moving forward and I promise you this, your story will touch lives and you'll be glad that you did, you've been a prisoner to addiction since you were just a kid, here's your second chance to actually get to live, embrace it all and learn to forgive..
You will be just fine, stay moving forward and never rewind...
