Addiction Recovery – Born to Run

Have you been on a wild ride, running from emotional, and mental anguish?  At some point, you will get to a point where there is no more places to hide, and you will have to face the adversity in your life.

As an alcoholic, I was truly born to run.  I would drink to hide from my problems, and used it as a ‘solution’ to my problems.  Getting drunk never led me to a solution, and all it did was exasperate my problems.  All of those years I thought I was hiding from others, I was actually hiding from myself (emotionally and mentally).

I have been born again over the last 5 1/2 years in my addiction recovery.  There are bumps in the road still, but those mountains have turned into mound hills.  Now I run towards improving myself, and those around me.

Enjoy Born to Run by Bruce Springsteen, and how I have related it to Addiction Recovery.
