This is dedicated to those who have touched the fires of life... To those who fall but stand back up. To those who get weak but find new strength. To those who break but rebuild themselves. To those who lose hope but believe again. This is for those who chance upon the recovery road. There is a life that awaits you. Your story matters. Write it...


Angel Of Reason

"...I’m not going to make a case for my selfishness. I’ve heard some addicts argue it wasn’t them, that it was the, “disease” – As if the “disease” somehow removes the angel of reason from their shoulder. Regardless of whether or not I have a disease, I made conscious decisions that hurt those most dear to me. I was at the wheel. Not anyone, or anything else. When desire didn’t rhyme with what I knew was right, I’d try hoodwinking myself on some bullshit rationalization that would make it easier to kick sand in the faces of those trying to help me.

So here I am today – my escape in a hostile landscape. A paradise in the desert. And all I had to do to get here was be completely selfish...." - Phoenix 1980HD.com
