Ten years ago, on October 2nd 2005, I made a decision that changed my life forever: I decided to get clean and sober.
My addiction recovery has been the greatest gift I have ever received and the greatest gift I have given the world. My commitment to stay sober is not only a commitment I have made to myself, but also one that I have made to you. My intention is to be a power of example for anyone struggling with the disease of addiction.
What I am most proud of in my life is that I often meet my Spirit Junkie readers who share that my work and books helped them get sober. Carrying the message of recovery is my greatest work and contribution to the world. I have deep gratitude that you received this message and have been inspired to embark on your own recovery journey, whatever that may be.
In this video I share my gratitude in celebration of my 10 years of sobriety.

My dear friend and spiritual running buddy Elena Brower is coming up on 1 year of sobriety. Her commitment to her recovery comes from a deep desire to serve in a MASSIVE way. In this Wanderlust Speakeasy audio, Elena shares a mind-blowing poem about her recovery and what it means to her. Enjoy Elena’s poem here.
Another great resource for addiction recovery is my book Spirit Junkie.
