My name is Michael.
I’m currently residing at the Thunder Bird treatment center.
On the 13th of this month, January ’07, I hope to have 8 months clean & sober.
Before the T-Bird I was a troll living or existing under the I-5 Cherry Street Bridge.
I flew my sign around there and used drugs every day. Mostly crack and booze.
I don’t know how long I can stay sober. I call myself the Relapse King. But today,
by the grace of God, I’m not using. I don’t give my word on anything because I’m the Promise Breaker.
