Overcoming Addiction

My story breaking free from addiction doesn’t define my life story any more than coming third in the cross country in the fourth grade does. But I like to reflect on it because my addiction coloured such a large chunk of my adult life.

My addiction was a layer of protection I carried – like a shield to keep me in the shadow from the sun.

Now, I have no shield – life is simple and raw.
