Dry Ice – Living Clean

I’m going to do some writing about living clean – living without being high – about living life without having to use dope to deal with my life.

Life throws us all some curve balls. Life isn’t easy – recovery does NOT promise us an easier life, just a better way to cope with the problems that every life WILL come accross. Recovery provides us with the tools to get through the good times with a smile, and the tough times with determination and some tools that don’t destroy everything else about our lives.



Quickly, I want to say that for me, right now may be the hardest time I have faced in my life. My Mother has lung cancer, and it has not been easy for me (Or anyone else who loves her.)

This is my story, though, and I will be posting now and then about the challenges, solutions, tools I am using, and how well that is working for me as I live through this (One Day At A Time.)

I have not reached the part in my blog about my recovery… but I will.

“Dry Ice” will walk us all through that process… and none of us (Including me) know where the path will end.

It starts today, and it starts with me having exactly 6 years, 3 months, 17 days, 3 hours, and 26 minutes clean.

    Having just come across your blog I am absolutely floored by your honesty and courage. I cried for the first time in a long time reading some or your entries. I hope that I too will be able to find the strength and help needed to become sober amidst everything that life throws at all of us. In the meantime, I truly hope that you and your family are able to spend as much loving time with your mother and dog as possible and that your husband is able to find a job. Thank you for telling us your story – it truly is making a difference in the world.
