From a kid in a ditch to a kid in the air

1 1

My name is Peter. I'm a recovering addict who got clean July 2, 2012. I was seventeen at the time. I was clean for several months before hand but placed a dangerous friendship before my recovery and relapsed. My road has been tough as nails and soft as rose petals. I go to 12 step meetings regularly have two service positions and have a sponsor. I now have a part-time job and spend my time either at meetings or at a circus training school where I am training to become a professional flying trapeze artiste and aerialist. It's not easy yet and it may never be but i cherish my life. I'd rather go through the rough times clean than running from things I fear with drugs and losing who I am my family my friends and my love for life. I love my life now and if you admit you have a problem and are WILLING to do whatever it takes. come fly with me :)
