Walking away was the hardest decision I have ever made in my life. It was also the most honest. I did the best I could to own it. I did a shitty job.

Not drinking was the only thing I had control over at the time. I took what I could get.

The days I didn’t cry I marked on a calendar. A two day run was an achievement.
