As we grow in our sobriety we can be faced with some difficult situations. Oftentimes we can find ourselves needing to separate from certain people, places, and/or things. Depending on what that may be, following through may be easier said than done. BUT on the other side of that often can be a new level of growth. That’s why in this week’s episode we’re asking, is it a breakup or a breakthrough?

 

This question is inspired by the warstory we have this week from Scott A.K.A. The Hope Dealer who reached out to share his story. Growing up in New York, Scott was always into something growing up. Booze, pills, gambling and partying, it didn’t matter much. Everything he did, he did in excess. 

 

Today Scott spends his time sober, reaching out to others who are homeless, hopeless and addicted and gets them into a treatment center. He’s an amazing figure in the recovery community and we’re glad to know people like Scott are out there in the trenches striving to make a difference. 

 

Thank you for telling your story Scott!
