We all have a fundamental challenge that life throws at us. We can choose to be victimized by it, or we can rise above and use it to create and live a more meaningful life. This is what is commonly referred to as "The Hero's Journey" by Joseph Campbell. I got addicted to marijuana at the age of 17. By age 30, I was a hopelessly addicted heroin addict and alcoholic. In July of 2007, I was sitting in my second treatment center when a white light appeared and I was reborn. I choose very simply to call the energy that came to me that day God. This is my story of addiction and redemption.

Addiction and Redemption

Dave is an amazing stroyteller and I find myself getting sucked in and always wanting more. I appreciate that he keeps it completely raw and real becaause that vulnerability is where the inspiration happens. The relation of addiction and redemption back to the universal of the "hero's journey" makes these stories relatable even if you haven't struggled with addiction. I'm so glad you're here to tell your stories, Dave. Thank you so much for sharing and inspiring!
