I’m Learning To Win


In Episode 40, Jack talks about the importance of learning in recovery as that’s what it’s all about — learning and leaning on each other when we can’t be strong for ourselves.

American Addiction Centers (AAC) presents “Far From Finished,” a weekly podcast that shares the real-life stories of people who survived substance use to thrive in recovery. In Episode 40, Jack talks about how he had his first drink when he was in the 8th grade. By the time he was 14 he had his stomach pumped twice. Even though he liked the feeling of alcohol he began hearing about drugs that didn’t make you throw up or send you to the hospital and thus began Jack’s path to heroin. The drug abuse numbed Jack enough to block out a home life that was filled with yelling and screaming, and by the age of 19, he began shooting the drug. Eventually, this leads to him getting kicked out of his home and he was forced to endure cold nights living on the street. After one particular night spent shooting heroin in his arm he knew that he had to go to detox. He’s been trying to do the right thing ever since. He’s mindful about who he hangs out with and wants to stay close to the winners, as he calls them because he sees the winners winning.
