Mission: Making stigma my bitch, one day at a time

Disclaimer: I will succeed in making stigma my bitch. This might get a little wild. Buckle up, buttercup.

Stigma: The dirty little whore

Let’s talk about my mission. Stigma. It’s that sneaky, judgmental shitty creature that slithers around, whispering lies and spreading its legs of darkness. Well, guess what? I’ve had enough! Stigma, you’re about to get a reality check. I’m not tiptoeing, I’m strutting right up into your grill, ready to slap the shit out of you.

The force within

There’s a fire burning in me. A force that refuses to be silenced. It’s my battle cry against the status quo. And it’s echoing, louder and louder, until everyone gets the hell out of my way. This isn’t just about me; it’s about all of us who’ve been held back by society’s narrow-mindedness.

Rock Bottom? Bullshit.

Remember that line about an alcoholic hitting rock bottom? Yeah, total crap. Life isn’t a game of “How low can you go?” We don’t need to suffer endlessly before we decide to change. Screw that noise. It’s okay to say, “no” to that drink. Recovery isn’t a leisurely stroll, it’s a damn marathon. But trust me, it’s worth every bloodied blister.

Labels, powerlessness, and meetings? Nah.

You know what? You don’t need labels. You’re not “powerless over alcohol.” And those meetings? Totally optional. Recovery is as unique as your fingerprint. So own it. Your way. No judgment, no shame. Let’s annihilate the stigma together. Because life? It’s precious. And we’re fucking warriors, damn it!

The bravest souls

People in recovery? Yeah, we’re the unsung heroes. The ones who battle the darkest demons in the quiet corners of their minds. We’re stronger than we know. Braver than we realize. Ignorance and discrimination can take a hike. Suck it, stigma. I’ll say it as many times as I want.

My goals on this mission (Besides kicking stigma’s ass)

  1. Brain dump: Get this clutter out of my head and heart. It’s like Marie Kondo-ing my brain. Most of this clutter does NOT spark joy. The shit’s got to go!
  2. Inspire a fellow boozer: Hey, you with the wine glass—there’s a better way. If you’ve read this far, keep going and keep an open mind.
  3. No right way: Recovery isn’t one-size-fits-all. It’s a choose-your-own-adventure.
  4. Shedding light: For those who’ve met a drunk like me, here’s a peek behind the curtain.
  5. Love and insight: Family and friends, this is my journey. Buckle up.
  6. Badass connection: Let’s find each other in this chaotic universe. Less isolation, more badassery.

You’re not alone
