How do you view those who you desire? Are you acting out of Lust? Are you having expectations if you do something for them? Do you view them for what they can offer?
Think about it, if you take away there outside beauty, and remove sex. Would you still view that person as beautiful.

Heres a Video of @sober_faust having a night out Sober in the DJ scene. Avicii is clear proof that even if you have all the money and fsme in the world. Doesn't mean your happy, and drug and alcohol abuse can kill you. R.I.P Avicii🙏
Thank you 🙏 @artz190 @olea.zelaya
I dedicate my 7 months to you😀
Art was the person who saved me when I was at Rock Bottom. I remember waking up crying, coming down off cocaine, alcohol, pills. And telling myself, "I can't handle this, this time. I'm going to kill myself, I don't see any way out of this. Fuck!!!!! Fuck!!!!! Why the fuck is this happening to me!!!!!!!" I remember seeing how Art has changed his life. He has this energy about him, through his smile and presence. So I called him and asked him to help me. He picked me up, went to his home, and I poured my soul out to him. I was shaking, crying and in pain. He told me God saved him. And after he read some scripture to me, I suddenly felt peace. As if all the pain was gone. In that moment i decided that whatever I'm feeling, is exactly what I want. After that I go Sober, and my life changed and I never looked back.
DM for the full story of what I had to do during the process to stay sober. Im happily open to help others.
Here's some Jump Rope Shenanigans with my @buddyleejumpropes Moving Forward with Double Unders, Cross Overs, Side Swings, and Seated Jumps at the end. "Every Jump I feel less anxiety, depression and fear." -Sober Faust
When your mind starts to race with negative thoughts, you begin to feel negative emotions. Grab a rope start jumping till you can't anymore and watch your state of mind change.

Are you guilty of this? I know I've been. You know that saying "I wanna meet my other half so I can be whole" that is actually the wrong perception to have. You wanna be whole, and to meet someone else who is whole who compliments your energy so you grow even more.
Develop self love, before entering a relationship. Learn to be happy alone.

Are you facing a difficult situation?
Try changing your perception on the problem. View it as a challenge in your life that is going to help you grow. Everytime you feel sad, anxiety, crying or fear. Tell yourself "Everything that is happening right now, is happening for a reason, I may not know right now, but I will get through today, so I'm 1 step closer"
Life happens to everyone. Some sooner then others and some worse then others. Thats what makes us grow. Look at some of the most successful people stories. Alot of them all have gone through dramatic life changing situations.
Ask yourself "What am I going to do about my situation" Own it, embrace and help another going through the same thing.
Leave a comment below of what your situation is and let's help one another.
Embrace your true self to the world. No matter how weird you are. Authenticy is sexy.
Do you feel uncomfortable in your own skin? Do you over think situations, and worry about what other people think? Let me tell you something that will make your brain itch. "L "The anxiety your feeling, is caused by your inner voice, that is starting to over think a situation because your creating a imaginary perception, of not what you think it is, not what the other person thinks it is, but what you think that person thinks it is." Control your mind, control your life. Imagine if you could have anything you wanted , if you could understand your brain, emotions, and thoughts. Would you do it? You should! It works! Take up Meditation, Yoga, Listen to the ex Monk @jayshetty and let your brain marinate of @lewishowes Podcast and @najwazebian Mind Platter.

Social support is vital when it comes to recovery—we were not meant to walk this path alone. Join our community of like-minded, men and women and connect with your tribe—the tribe that will support you in your healing, transformation, and power. “We tend to focus on snapshots of isolated parts of the system, and wonder why our deepest problems never seem to get solved.”

Are you making a way toward a specific destination with all your heart and a mind focused on success? Do you hope to arrive at sobriety some day? Or like most active addicts, are you lost and adrift like a ship without a rudder? If so, it’s only a matter of time before you’ll end up on the rocks. Chart your course toward sobriety. The recovered addict living in sobriety is in every sense the captain of his own ship. 🚢 We can help you take the helm of your own life. (888)HELP-750
Recovery is based on change. You must change your habits, your thought processes, your friends, the places you used to frequent, your hobbies, etc. In fact, entering recovery is almost like creating a whole new life! This change can be incredibly scary – it is hard to let go of what we know to enter a world we don’t. However, for you to succeed in recovery, you will need to be able to let go and move on.
Know that you are worth it. You are important and deserving of a life free of addiction. You can overcome any obstacle that gets in your way. The sooner you understand these things, the sooner you can proceed successfully in your new, sober way of life. Working with both an addiction treatment program as well as a therapist will facilitate healing from the past, staying sober, and building a new life.

Surfing 🏄 and sobriety go hand-and-hand. Both require patience, practicing forgiveness, maintaining presence, and having faith in something uncontrollable. You can’t force the ocean or the people in your world to produce the perfect set of circumstances. Your sobriety is dependent on your perception and practicing acceptance for what ‘is’. It all yields grace. 💪 Look out over the horizon and enjoy the ride sober...it just doesn’t get any better than that! What similarities do you see?
Back in early 2016.. I never thought I’d get this far. Quite the therapeutic ride for me, and I will continue to help as many people as I can! If you are struggling with something, don’t be afraid to reach out for help. We are in this together! Thank you @recoverytodaymag for reaching out and wanting to share my story! I am so thankful for the opportunity.

If you believe that once you find the path to recovery that seems to work, that it will always work for you, you’re setting yourself up for failure. A healthy recovery is flexible. Flexibility allows us to alter our efforts according to our needs. In early recovery you need daily meetings, a therapist, a sponsor, sober friends, getting involved in service and work the steps. After the first year you can make a few adjustments depending on what you need to do to manage your addiction. We adjust our recovery path to fit our current needs, and these will always change. Comment here about how you know if you’re on the right path? (888)HELP-750
Had the pleasure to have a sit down interview with @iamjonezen for the next issue of @recoverytodaymag. Amazing human with an amazing story on how he overcame his demons & is now on top. If he & myself can beat our addictions for today then ANYONE CAN!!!!
Hit up @sobarecovery & make that 1st step today....
Clinging to toxic attitudes will sabotage your serenity. You need to strive to replace toxic attitudes and beliefs with ones that will add to who you are, that are nourishing and nurturing to your recovery. By focusing your awareness on the quality of your thoughts or beliefs you can identify them as either nurturing to your recovery or toxic to it. Expectations are a component of toxic attitudes, since most toxic attitude’s include some sort of “should” that rules you. The right path will reveal itself to you as you check in with and become aware of your inner experience. If you sincerely want to get and stay sober, then find the courage to go to any length to find a solution. Let us know how we can help. (888)HELP-750

In the end...We only regret the chances we didn’t take, the relationships we were afraid to have, and the decisions we waited too long to make.
Don’t waste a single moment living in addiction. The pain of regret can be more brutal than physical pain. Most likely you can relate to the fact that drunk or high people say all sorts of things that they regret.
Sobriety will reduce greatly those regrettable incidents because you’ll be more in control of your thoughts and actions. It’s important to forgive yourself for any past actions that you may feel guilty about. Seeking help may be the best decision you’ll ever make. (888)HELP-750 @pacificshoresrecovery
"UN-FUCKED". Your addiction may have told you, "you're fucked!" "Nobody loves you" "You're fucking worthless" "My life is fucked". "I fucked up everything". But the truth is, you can be "Un-Fucked". "You can fucking turn this shit around." It takes a decision. It takes courage. It takes work, a lot of work to be Un-Fucked...but you're worth it. Someone loves you. Someone will say thank you. Someone will tell you, your courage inspired them. Maybe someone you meet a year or two from now. A best friend you've not even met yet...who a year from now tells you "they thought they were fucked" until they met you and heard your story. .
.For those of you offended by this word, we HUMBLY and SINCERELY apologize. It's course. It's crude...but we've all heard it and it PROVOKES A VICERAL RESPONSE. The kind of response that's sometimes needed when the predator is about to eat you and you SHOUT with all your might, because you're about to die... "NOT TODAY! NOT TODAY!! TODAY I LIVE!"
.Thats the response we sometimes need. We won't be eaten. We won't stay down. We rise again. Nothing is over until we say it is because WE ARE THE AUTHOR AND ONLY WE GET TO SAY WHEN THE STORY ENDS!
.UN-Fuck yourself. Pray, work, work your ass off like never before. Concentrate... like the most precious life you've ever loved depends on it. Be kind, do something for yourself, for someone else. Live! You fucking deserve it! You're here for a reason!
.Your life DOES Fucking have purpose. The world IS better, or it COULD be because you're in it! .
