I have spent the past year on a new path. I was a drug addict since the first time I used when I was 13. The thought of living without drugs and alcohol never crossed my mind. I started my new beginning when I put down the drink and the drug 10 months ago. In the process of working my recovery I have found a new belief in a Higher Power I call God. As my first year of sobriety is coming to an end my dad has sent me this cross to remind me to breath I believe. My cross says Exhale. This is just the beginning of my journey but this cross will remind me of all the work I did in my first year.
