A Journey Through 20 Years

Today is April 5, 2015, and I am celebrating 20 years clean and sober from addiction. 20 years ago I was admitted to a psyche ward after weeks of abusing drugs and alcohol in a nightclub called “the Tunnel” in New York City.

When I think of that statement it really makes sense. When you’re “Edging God Out”, you’re not attuned to the spirit. When that …
