Profile Information

Wasted youth is not wasted if there was good reason to have experienced it. As I stand now in retrospect with the clarity of twelve clean years behind me, it seems I was doing research. For a decade's worth of mistakes, my only life-rope hanging over the opaque tar pit of self denial was the belief that if I could just make it out alive, I could escape addiction's grasp on my short and curlies by hibernating in safe obscurity and writing of all I'd been through. I would simply replace the drug with something i love to do, something nobody could take away. I'd stay clean by chasing a dream. Having a goal to work toward. My naked gratitude would keep me writing. No methadone or medication. No doctors. No P.O.'s or urine samples. Just touring the city benches, watching the people and writing a bunch of stories nobody will probably ever read. But having that writing to focus on has kept me clean for over a decade now. Audience is secondary and not required for true success. My name is Jacob Gnarley, these are my words.
