Well, my goodness.  This certainly isnt easy but I'll give it a shot, whats the worst that could happen??   A few people have told me lately I should do a GoFundMe Page with my year of sobreity coming up.  Almost a year sober and I feel great. I hated the idea of the page and thought there was no way I would ask for people's help or a hand out.  I didnt like the idea of getting something for doing nothing.  So after thinking about it for a while I've decided to make to page but for every donation of $100 or more I will send you a pair of shoes; the O so hard to get "Yeezy Boost".  I will also be randomly giving away gifts for donations with corresponding messages to add a little fun to the mix!    Well here is my story which Im going to keep as short as possible & I hope to help someone!

I've always loved to have a good time.   I've always had a lot of drinking buddies, which was good because I LOVED to drink.  So you can always rotate who you hang with, you're drinking everyday just with different people.  I've always had an off switch.  Somewhere along the way the off switch broke, or blew the eff up!!  My drinking was too much then but I wasnt quite at the bottom of the bottle yet.  I am not making excuses, I want to make that clear.  Im resposible for my actions, which today I take pride in.  In a very short amount of time, about 2 years, I lost a very dear friend Josh who was family to me to cancer,  my beloved mother had multiple brain anurysms and my uncle had a heart attack.  I began drinking at levels that disgust me today.  All day, everyday.   In a year and a half I was hospitalized over a dozen times for alcohol consumtion.  I had multiple seizures.  I lost my home.  Doctors told me my brain had shrunk to the size of a 95 year old man's.  My liver was 2/3 of the way scarred and beyond the ability to heal itself.   The pain in my abdomen was intense.  My eyes were turning yellow.  It was begining to look like the end of the road for me.  I was trying to drink myself to death.  The last time I was in the hospital I fell into a coma for 4 days.  I had respitory failure.  A wire or device on every part of my body when I woke up.   An indescribable feeling of complete dillusion.  I knew at that point I was not invincible and I had to make the decision if I wanted to live or die.  Thankfully, I finally chose to quit drinking for the rest of my life on my Mother's Birthday last year, August 11th 2016.   Since then, life has been amazing.  For a long time I just couldnt wrap my head around the fact I had to try and have fun without booze.  I thought it was impossible.  It certainly is not!!  Today I am as healthy as ive been in a long time.  I've gone to the doctor and I've had blood work done and I am as healthy as I have ever been in my life.  My organs are all healthy including my liver, which the doctors didnt understand.  But I do.  I know its the Angel I have in my corner hooking me up, and I am iternaly thankful.  I have been working with The Champion Plan/Stairway to Recovery in Brockton, MA to try and help anyone that feels the way I did before I made the best decision of my life.  The picture is of myself and my Recovery Coach Mary Lou & the Program Director Peggy.  They are amazing people that bend over backwards to help someone who needs them. 

Why am I asking for help? After five years working in television production in Los Angeles, CA & seven years in the golf industry in Phoenix, AZ I'm back home in Boston. I've dusted myself off, I'm out of treatment and back to reality, a much clearer reality. I want to do everything the right way.  No more riding dirty.  While living in Arizona I got a ticket for an improper left hand turn & out of state/Exp tags.   The transmission on the car shortly died following the ticket. I went to court and the Judge told me to fix and register the car or sell the car and come back with proof in 30 days and she would throw out the ticket.   Well, in that 30 days I rented a car and had the transmission fixed  but did not re-register the car.  On the way to court 30 days later in the newly fixed car I got pulled over for the expired tags again and missed the court date.   Unfortunatly, After a little investigation that ticket is now nearly $1,900.  So, Im just gonna throw the ego out the window and see how this goes, and if anyone knows someone suffering from addiction or depression please dont hesitate to reach out and I would love to help out in any possible way I can.  No amount is overlooked or too small!!  

Thank you & God Bless
