About Me

It’s hard to actually pinpoint a precise moment at which my life stopped being good and descended into the dark pit that I found myself at the bottom of on Tuesday 13th March 2012.  It felt like the end of the line that night, I was face down on the floor in floods of tears threatening suicide and only five days later coming to close to committing suicide before waking up and making the decision to sort this out.

I’m a thirty nine year old, father of two, but I had spent the previous few years steadily sinking into depression and struggling with an alcohol addiction, to the point that it destroyed everything I had and almost destroyed me, but I’ve turned it around, I’ve stopped drinking and made some big changes in my life.

Six months later I found the inspiration to start this Blog and share the moments that pin point my fall and my recovery, in the hope that just one person will find some inspiration in my writing to turn around their own lifes.

    Hello! Thank you for stopping by my blog. I haven’t yet read any of your poems, and I clicked on follow button, since the name of the blog and the reason you gave was painful yet quite beautiful. Bottom of a bottle! Amazing. I’ll look forward to read your posts. Cheers! 🙂

    Just one more voice of encouragement here among many! Keep fighting, I too suffer “demons” and I suspect most all of us do. Find the courage to fight one day at a time, let tomorrow worry about itself…

    Thanks for the visit to my blog as well. If we can help you at all, let me know!

    Looking forward to reading your blog. It’s great that you started it to help others. I lost my father about 10 years ago to alcohol and then a good friend in recent years to the same thing.

    Because Christ God is always with us, you never have to walk far–just one step at a time. He will guide you in the Spirit. Stand strong. 😀

    Good luck on your journey.

    Awesome blog….I’m so glad that you found the true answer to healing. I truly do believe that a life without God is hopeless and once we connect to Him, He lifts us up and gives us freedom. Thanks for the follow and I’m sure that you will be a big witness for God.

  22. Ashley L Jones

    Wayne – Thanks for stopping by BigSisterKnows.com recently – I’m so glad you did! I suffered from depression in my twenties, which was triggered by grief and illness. I’ve seen other blog sites devoted to this topic, but they seem to be mostly written by women. We all know that men deal with these issues, as well, so thank you for sharing your experiences and for offering encouragement to others. (Many times, the difficult stories are shared, but the role of faith in recovery is either glossed over or left out entirely.) May God continue to bless your life and help you to share your testimony effectively and for His grace.

    –Ashley Jones

    Thanks for the follow. 🙂 I’m new-ish to this whole sobriety thing so it’s comforting to see things on the other side of addiction. I appreciate your honesty and look forward to reading more of your testimony. God bless!
