‘Right now, holding and maintaining a good, solid relationship is a challenge. I’m not in a relationship right now and a lot of that has to to do with some of the habits that I’ve formed over the years…specifically drinking. Right now, I’m in rehab at the Odyssey House. It’s one of the big things in my life that I want to change because of the stigma…that people look at it as a choice rather than as a disease. I’ve learned that I have to do a lot of self-maintenance to stay sober. I have a routine, almost every hour and every day…always checking myself and who I’m with or where I am. I’m taking things one step at a time…and I’m determined. What I’ve done in the past is over and done with. I know I have a bright future and, hopefully, it will be with someone special who will understand where I’ve come from and that what I’ve gone through has led me to where I am. Because of what I’ve done and the choices I’ve made, I’m a lot stronger than I would be otherwise…and, believe it or not, I’ve learned how to be grateful for that. I’ve been to the bottom and nothing is going to stop me from getting back to the top.’18
