My Experience With Recovery (Breyonne)

Seven years ago I got tired of living my life the way I was. I couldn’t stop drinking, smoking, eating or doing drugs. I was sick constantly. I was living in harmful situations with toxic people, and each and every day was exactly the same. My only respite was to go out and get loaded again.

HALT! Take Some Time to Think!

HALT: Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired. You should never make any important decision when you are any of these things.

Thou Art Anger

I created these one day after a triggering counseling session. I got home and I didn’t know what to do. I couldn’t call anyone and vent, nor did I want to. I was in one of those spaces where I mostly just wanted to watch the world burn. So in a moment of clarity I reached for the art supplies and this is what came out of it. Creating something probably saved my life that day.
