Mission Statement

I would like to introduce myself to all who visit my blog . My name is Tim Doiron , I am 48 years old at present . I have recently lost control of my life due to a drug addiction , presently in an out-patient program and doing well.

December 18 2013

I guess it’s about time I updated and added to my mission statement. I turned 50 in September It has been almost two years drug free….I do however have a way to go. My life has changed so drastically I still am not in control or it seems so out of control at times.

      My main priority is to remain drug free and it takes up so much of my energy , energy I should be using in other places. Sobriety takes so much thought and time , time others use on different things. I do know this will diminish as I go …but it gets so frustrating at times .

  1. I wish you all the best. You can overcome, I’m sure of it. Jesus said if u have faith you can move a mountain and nothing will be impossible for you. Matt 17:20

    • Thanks for your words …doing great so far…

  2. Thanks for sharing your story, continue to press on towards healing. A great resource is an radio show I listen to called New Life Live they talk a lot about recovery and espisodes can be found on one place.com under the letter N or by googling the show name. Thanks for all the encouragement at 20 lines take care.

    • Thanks ..I am doing great …but it’s a long road , I love your work as well …Hopefully we will share for some time to come

  3. I’m happy that you are doing well!

  4. Congratulations on doing so well. Keep up the good work and thank you for coming by my blog.

  5. Woo Hoo! So glad you got in a program and love your photos & blog! My like button is malfunctioning which is very frustrating because I cannot post likes. I like your posts.
    Hang in there. If you want it to work, it will work and it sounds like you do.
    Look forward to following your posts.
    The coyotes are going crazy here at the holler right now!
    Cheers,
    Cindy

  6. Hang in there, Tim. I’ve been there and done that.

  7. I didn’t realize you were in a program…how’s it going?
    I’m a recovering heroin addict and want to wish you the best. It isn’t easy, but rebuilding a life IS possible and so, so worth it. I’ve been in recovery since 2006 and didn’t think I could handle sobriety for a week let alone 7 years. What I’m trying to say is this: when you’re ready to change, it really can happen.
    Bravo to you for the hard work and soul searching that brought you to this point. I’ll hold good thoughts for you. 🙂

    • I am doing well… Kinda on the outside looking in…:)

  8. Hi Tim,
    Glad to hear you’re recovering and hope you can stay in control. My entire family has/had major problems with addiction (including me, but mine is with food instead of drugs). I know it’s a very hard thing to deal with. Keep up the good work !!
    I just wanted to say thanks for stopping by and liking my post.

    • It was my pleasure…I’m doing pretty good with my recovery … When I first Started I was under the impression it would be a 90 day thing and I would be back to my usual life….hmmmm lol I now know as it is an every day thing probably for the rest of my life…

      • yeah, I think you’re right, every day… but don’t think of that😉 it gets depressing, at least it does for me.

  9. Hi Tim
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. My father is an alcoholic who only gave alcohol up when it about killed him – but he still has not taken the kind of steps I see you taking to really experience and enjoy life. I am so happy for you that you have decided to wake up to the amazing world we live in. I know it is not easy. One day at a time. I hope my photography helps you to want to stay in the moment. They are too precious to be missed. Best Wishes for your continued recovery.

    • Thanks for stopping by cate b…🙂

  12. Stay strong Tim! Congrats on your 2 years. As unaware mentioned…one day at at time🙂

    If you take suggestions…throughout the day (when you have free time) just breath and take a few deep breaths and focus on your breath…it can be noisy in your head(I know it is in mine😉 ) don’t pay attention if your thoughts are negative or positive just take note of the feeling until you feel relaxed. As you become more comfortable use a timer. As the wooshing stops, add sometime. Starting with 10 sec of silence and build from there.

    I hope this entry doesn’t sound bossy.

    Hope you have a great rest of the day.
