Mark M: A Decade Sober
“It was 10 years ago today, that my life changed forever. On 12/18/07 I decided to get sober. It has been the hardest and best thing I’ve ever faced. So, if you’re reading this I imagine you’ve impacted my life in a great way. I just wanted to thank you for the love and support over the years. This path in life has far exceeded any expectations that I could have ever had. I’m truly humbled by this incredible life that I am fortunate to live and learn from. Thanks everyone.”
Mark M. was one of the first people I met when I came to Jaywalker Lodge. I was nervous and uncertain of how to attain my next 24hours sober. Mark shook my hand and said, “lets take a walk.” We walked around Carbondale, connecting on the life that we wanted and how abstinence was required but not sufficient. We craved connection, the outdoors, and a passion for living. Mark, that walk left an impression, I thank you for the proper introduction to this life in recovery.
