How I said goodbye to drugs and hello to fatherhood

Hi, my name is Hunter Glasscock. For years, Father’s Day didn’t mean anything to me. It was just another day to run around and get my fix. I couldn’t afford to buy anything for my dad, and seeing my own kids wasn’t a priority. Honestly, it got in the way of my drinking and using drugs. Looking back, it would not have been good for them if I did visit them. The best thing I could do was to stay away.

I was in addiction for many years before I decided it was time to rebuild my life. Not a day goes by that I don’t think back to where I once was. Addiction Recovery Care helped transform my life. Now, my kids know that I’m going to be there every day. I’m going to be consistent with an unwavering commitment to them.

Also, I get to thank my dad for being there for me this Father’s Day. I get to know that I’m a part of someone’s life. Father’s Day is important to me now, thanks to my recovery. It feels good. It’s one of those days that makes all of this worthwhile. You get to see what you’re doing, what life’s all about, and how recovery has built a better future for my kids and family.

If you’re struggling like I was, let this encourage you that change is possible. Rebuild your life and make every day count. Happy Father’s Day.
