Howard B. shares how recovery has changed his perception on how he once viewed his life, those in it and  situations that took place which he took little accountability for.

Since getting sober I have started to perceive myself in a much different way in many aspects of my life. As opposed to the way I was when I was not sober, I now have a lot of hope for my life and I am taking many of my goals and aspirations seriously. When I was busy being intoxicated and doing whatever I could in order to get what I wanted, I did not feel at peace, nor did I have much self-esteem or self worth. I am now able to see things in my life in a new way, due to being absent from drugs and alcohol and being guided by the house and my brothers.
