Next weekend, February 20th, 2021 will be the 1-year anniversary of my relapse and overdose. I will have one year completely sober and back in recovery! Over this last year, I have experienced more personal growth, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually than ever before. There is one last mountain I need to climb; my personal physical health. I eat and drink the most unhealthy things you can imagine and I don’t drink water. Soda, Red Bull, donuts, ice cream, hot Cheeto fries, white cheddar popcorn. You name it, I eat it. I don’t just love it, I am dependent on it.
Today I am finally committing to cutting all that out for good. Over the next 21 days, I will go to the extreme of drinking only water, cutting out all sugar, and restricting food intake to very small portions of dried, lean meat. Between the hours of Noon and 7 pm. Intermittent fasting. Cold Turkey on all the comfort food and drinks I have lived on forever. When it gets tough, when I feel sorry for myself, I will summons the power of American Prisoners of War. I will think about what they endured, what they sacrificed and I will rely heavily on God and my personal relationship with him to get through. Another reason I am calling it the POW challenge is because I am literally a prisoner of these substances. I don’t want to be a prisoner, I don’t want to be powerless over anything in life. This is the last enemy I need to vanquish. Join me!
