When I first decided to get really clean, I was on an opiate blocker called Suboxone, and I remember it like yesterday. Evel Knievel was one of my biggest clients and he passed away. I never dealt with anything like this before. I had no idea how to cope. I couldn’t go for an opiate, an anxiety pill, I couldn’t take anything. So I did some research online and found that if I went clean for eight hours, I could then take the real stuff. So I did it. But man, those eight hours seemed like 80 hours. And then I got to the memorial, right before the service started I took my opiates and all was good, but the hardest part of it all, which was a complete nightmare, was that I eventually had to flip flop back and off the real stuff back onto the Suboxone. Oh my gosh, what a nightmare. Absolute pure Hell I wanted to jump off the building it was so horrible.
And then by some God-given miracle, I was blessed about a year and a half later to turn my bottom into my beginning. I fell down on my knees calling out to God like never before and I was directed to a 12 step fellowship by my uncle and his then-girlfriend and these sober brothers and sisters showed me the softer, easier, life to live. One day at a time I got there. I started putting time together and I got the confidence that I could really do this.
