“I just graduated Tangu, which is my next care here in Atlanta. I completed the 30 day blackberry recovery in the North Georgia area and completed it after 30 days. I moved on to something I had never done before, called aftercare. It’s something I’ve always thought, and I’ve learned with addiction, that 30 days is not enough. You always try it and think, ‘Well, I’m 30, so I’m good now.’ I’ve done that three or four more times and it’s not right.”
“When you go through aftercare, and continue your sobriety for countless days with 90 meetings in 90 days, all the things that people hear about, but things that people don’t do, and I actually did it. I did 90 in 90. I am not a one-day counter. My sobriety date is 27th August. Actually today is 148 days. They now have a new app that you can check out. Today is 148 days sober, and I have never been sober 148 days in my life. I mean, I really don’t think so. When you talk about total abstinence, 148 days is big.”
“So I’m very excited. I’m doing things I never thought I could do, like I can sleep at night without medication. For years, I didn’t think I could do it, but I can and it’s great. With my life during the day, going to the gym and stuff, it was a pill for everything. It was a pill to get to the gym. It was a pill to relax. It was a pill for sleeping. It was a wake-up pill. Then the alcohol with it, it just became a crazy world and I was already living in one called professional wrestling, and so it added to that, but I got a corral in it. I got the grips of it, and you know, I’m cool. I feel pretty good. I’ve been told I look good. So that’s all fantastic. So thumbs up here. I just feel fantastic.”
