Crazy Raw Vegan Diets And Healthy Livers

Posted by , 11 November 2016 · 129 views

I haven’t blogged in a long time, and maybe it’s because I’m older and more self conscious about the baloney that pours out of my noodle, who knows, but I thought I’d give it a go again. A few things have happened this year that I’ve failed to properly brag about: like getting married! It’s true, I’m not a single pringle anymore. I never actually pictured...

Another Reason Not To Do Drugs

You lose people.  
You lose people you care about, and it fucking hurts.

Just A Heads Up.

When my truck was stolen, so was my rent and utility money. I'm without a job right now, it's been rough, but it looks like it's going to get rougher starting the 15th. I'm trying to get the money, but it looks like it won't come in time. I'll probably be facing eviction. The thought of being homeless is pretty terrifying and embarrassing. I'm quite asham...

They Found My Truck!

Posted by , 29 June 2015 · 399 views

I recently got in contact with an old "friend", who told me he was also living the clean life now. We'll call him Dale (mostly because that's his name). 
Short story: Dale stole my truck. He waited until I was gone and made off with it.  
They just found him in Knoxville attempting to sell it. 
Lesson learned: the past is probably best kept...

Liver transplants!

Posted by , 25 March 2015 · 616 views

One of the most paramount achievements of my life was that first six months of sobriety. With it, came the liver transplant that I proudly have maintained staying clean for. It’s been roughly five year, going on six years, since I received this liver, and although I may need another one eventually, I have been relatively healthy since, and I’m satisfied t...

Human Complexity

Posted by , 23 January 2015 · 585 views

I’m no stranger to ignorance; I live in Tennessee after all, but today a friend asked me a question that really made me think. She asked if I ever thought about being a girl since I was biologically female. Now it may come off as a simple yes and no question, but it’s not. The truth is, sometimes I identify as having female qualities. Sometimes I even won...

It's not much.

First I read about Trebs, then Robbin Williams, I never knew how mortal I could feel until recently. You see, I never met either Robert or Robbin, but I feel the pain of loss of someone who was part of my life. I’m truly devastated.

But then I remember what John Green said about infinity:

They were both a part of my own infinity and I cannot word how th...

My beef with NA/AA

Posted by , 22 July 2014 · 591 views

It's no secret that I'm a drug addict, and I've been going to Narcotics Anonymous for a couple of years now, but I finally decided to stop going because it just doesn't work for an atheist. The whole system is flawed. I tried just about everything including alternating my "higher power" to something other than God, yet, they still shove God down my throat...

Drugs are bad, mkay.

Posted by , 21 January 2014 · 532 views

Legit. I've been sober for some time now, and it's still a battle everyday to overcome those cravings. It's like an itch just barely out of reach. That twitching desperation. Yet, I'm not scratching so I figure I have some right to major gloating.

Oh yeah, oh baby, I'm the bomb.

Not really. The fact is, I'm not satisfied with just being sober. There's a...

Shoe Thief

Posted by , 23 October 2013 · 449 views

I've been volunteering at the community kitchen for a couple of years now, and I've gotten to know a lot of the homeless people who come in there, and one of them is Franklin. He's in his 60's and can't really take care of himself, but he's really nice to everyone. This morning he came in for breakfast barefoot, and I asked where his shoes were since it w...
