Supah Fly Quick Bio

I am a 45 year-old father, husband, son, brother, uncle and general worker bee. I have been sober for over five years. I am not a champion for recovery in any way, but merely an example of what recovery can do to change someone and their outlook on life.

I write, I run, I step on LEGO a lot. I have been active in recovery, which includes writing a blog called Message In A Bottle, which ran for over two years, and is still up for casual viewing. You’ll find me online a lot, here and here. I am a seeker and look to all venues to bring more enlightenment to myself and to try and help others. I am not perfect. I scowl sometimes. I get down. I am as honest as I can get so I can find the light. Or have it find me.

I live in Canadaland with two young boys and a wife who somehow stuck with me through it all. Life is groovy.

Are you new to recovery?

Do you want to stop drinking? Or have you just started to abstain? New to recovery? Don’t know if you’re ready to stop?

If so, then welcome. I, and countless others, have been there. Know one thing – you are NEVER alone. And if you are on the internet and are finding sites like this, then perhaps there is something deep down that you may already know. Again, welcome.

There are millions of groovy dudes and lovely ladies who have been where you have been – lonely, despairing, guilt-ridden, full of remorse, shameful, isolated. You need not feel like you’re the only way who has felt the way you do. We all have come to recovery, on our knees, broken and busted up, not knowing which way is up and wondering how the hell we got to that place.

We are doctors, mechanics, school teachers, priests, administrators, baristas, small business owners, chefs, carpenters, and countless other walks of life. All with one thing in common – the desire to stop drinking (or drugging) and looking for a way out of the endless cycle of pain and suffering that we not only inflict on ourselves, but others.

I don’t know you, but let me tell you something. Something you probably weren’t expecting this little site to tell you.

I love you.

You heard that, right? Yes. You are loved. You don’t know it yet, but millions of other alcoholics and addicts you have never seen or heard from love you too. Why? Because we know how it feels. We know the feelings of self-loathing and unworthiness you are feeling right now. The confusion, the not knowing, the uncertainty of it all… click the link below to read more!
