A journey to embrace, explore, and honor the Freedom and Power inherent in active recovery.

No more shame...

No more shackles....

No more secrets.

The path--and the Power--are within. Be Free.

LEST Old Acquaintance Be Forgot...

Remember this night, should temptation and distance of
past embarrassments cloud your judgements...
that there is nothing that can be bettered by
imbibing of the booze.

In fact, your impaired judgement can make you
duly susceptible to tons more problems, difficulties,
worries, and headaches come the cold hard light
of day.

All the work of reputation, standing, effort, progress,
and pride done away in just the flick of a wrist.
So be fore-warned and fore-armed.
It's just another night; it isn't made or broken
by drinking. You can do this; you're not susceptible to
peer pressure any more.

And remember that it isn't all fun and games.
There are real life consequences, to you,
your friends, and people who deserve better than what
they get for simply being on the road next to a drunk.

Do the right thing.
Care for yourself and others.
Surround yourself with the right people and things.
Don't give in to pressure;
be true to you.

Have a safe and happy one.
