Starting your life over. You ever think about it before? Are you thinking, does this only apply to addicts who are in recovery, trying to recover their life back?


Not necessarily. This can be applied to way more groups of people, and not just addicts. This can also be applied to people going through a spiritual awakening while realizing they have been programmed wrong along their journey as well. But we will be strictly speaking to addicts on this topic.

(Take what works and throw out the rest)


You have come to realize you have made some serious mistakes in your life. That is wonderful to hear and see. Welcome to the first day of your new life.

Will this be easy?

No! Not even close!

Will it be worth it?

Yes. Yes, it will be. But you need to trust the process of it all. There will be a lot of ups and downs, highs and lows. Especially at the beginning, you will experience A Lot of Pain. I will not sugar coat this for you. You deserve the truth and not just some vague blanket statement to be thrown at you.

This is going to really suck at the beginning. There is really no way around this (that I could find).

But hang in there. You can and will do this. You shall overcome. Only on one condition.


Failure is Not an Option!!!

If you are going to fail – Then Fail Forward

NEVER Fail Backwards.

You know this pain you are experiencing right now? Are you at rock bottom? Are you close to it?

Be honest with yourself – you are only cheating yourself and your life with a lie.



Feel this pain. I want you to remember how much this sucks right now. How miserable life is, and how bad your thoughts are at this timeline in your life.

Engrain it into your subconscious mind. Really truly feel this pain. Lean into it.

This pain is going to be your driving force moving forward. Because if you Allow yourself to fail backward again. This is what you got to go back to. So, use this pain to your advantage.

Remember, trust the process.

This is Your Life. This is Your Reality. You only got one shot at it, as this is not a dress rehearsal. This is live. We are all headed to death and back into the soil. Then what happens after that, no one really knows. We all have beliefs and faiths as to what happens when we leave our bodies. But none of us really truly know for sure.

Don’t waste your life. You have a lot of life trapped inside you trying to get out. Live fully. Live clear. Live consciously.


Burn your bridges

I’m not sure how to instruct you on how to best go about this. But I will share with you why it is very important to do. Addicts, you know which friends I’m talking about. When I say “friends”, you and I both know we are speaking about your drug dealers. I know, I know…

You don’t understand, but this particular friend is different. He or she really is a good friend of mine who has been through thick and thin with each other.


Let me ask you something.

What do you all talk about when you are together? Do you talk about building a future, outside of drugs? How many times does the word jail, prison, drugs, anger, frustration, paranoia, wrongdoings, come up? Analyze your conversations for a bit each time you are together from now on until you realize there is very little upliftment happening in your interactions. Once you realize this, it’s time to make some plans. You need out of this friendship. This friendship is toxic. You may not be able to completely put your finger on it. But you feel and sense it in every fiber of your being, that something is off in this relationship.

Stop allowing phone calls, texts, interactions on social media, etc. (again, you kind of need to figure this out on your own, as there is no set-in-stone way on how to properly do this – but it must be done – do not feel bad about this)

Step 2

Create a new email account

Create all-new social media accounts and friend NO ONE (yet)
