Sometime in January I knew things were not right and that a climax was on it’s way.
I phoned the local drug and alcohol detox facility on January 22nd, 2012 and self admitted myself three days later for seven days. For an entire week, I went through the rather uncomfortable detoxification process, and survived.
I’ve been sober off over-the-counter medications and alcohol ever since.
I didn’t think a relapse would happen this way. I mean… this coming August I’ll be seven years clean off hard drugs and five months cigarette free later this month… and now on the 25th I’ll be 90 days clean and sober off of everything.
And that feels foreign and most naked to me.
