I am the strongest relaxed,
The world we live in. Amazing Gift it is. The Life and everything in it, Divine Creation. I am the luckiest man I have ever known. Cannot say that I always knew that… I have realized, and had a stage in my life, when I wanted to enhance my experiences, to accelerate them, when I wanted to add more stimulant to life and I did it in a way that many of us do.
And I have discovered the power of chemically inducted feeling of relaxation, feeling of love, feeling of connection, even spiritual awakening. I did my share of stuff. And the moment came when I realized that I started tailoring my life around availability of stimulans, and before I got sucked too deep – I got out. I made friends, lovers and even had business sucess related to chemically induced states I was in.
I remember how weak I was when on my own, how much better it was being “enhanced”, but – I got out. I have a friend that got out too. Friends journey wasn’t that easy. But friend got out too.
And I have passion for life, I live free and rich, I am enjoying the moment when I open my eyes in the morning, as well as I enjoy when I close them at night. I love and live, I enjoy the blessing of life and I am doing it on my own. No other enhancements but the one in me, the feelings of love and appreciation, gratefulness and generosity. Give and you shall recive.
Live Free and Live Rich are my gifts to the people. People like you – passionate, curious , brave, loving, wild, wanting to do and be better all the time. The way of people like us is not easy, as we need the bump on the road to appreciate the smooth section, we need the turn to appreciate the straight, we need to slow down to accelerate and squat to jump higher. But if we master the skill we get on the top, and nothing takes us down. This is my mission, my friends, and Live Rich, and me, and all my resources are here to serve you.
Welcome to Live Free , Per Aspera Ad Astra.

I didn’t get in trouble every time I drank, but every time I got in trouble, I was drinking.
It wasn’t how much I drank; it’s what the drink did to me.
It felt like I had a hole in my soul.
I had a hollowness in my heart.
I felt empty on the inside years before I ever took that first drink.
Those are some of the statements that I use to describe my drinking. It’s been said that only an alcoholic can remember his first drink in vivid detail. That’s certainly true for me. I took my first drink when I was 14 years old. I was on the football team at the time, and I got the chance to drink with the cool, older guys on the team. I’d always been outgoing, funny and engaging with other people. At the same time, I always felt, deep on the inside, that if people really knew me, they wouldn’t like me. I felt empty. More than anything, I wanted to be a part of a group and to fit in. Looking back on it now, I can see that I was part of many groups, and that I did fit in. At the time, though, all I felt was empty and alone.
After I made the freshman football team, instead of feeling joy and happiness, I felt they must have let me in for some reason other than my skill…maybe pity. Then, after a game, the older guys went into the woods to party. Someone brought baby food jars full of cherry vodka. They passed the jars around and took sips. When my turn came, I drank the whole thing.
To this day, even 41 years later, even after 32 years completely sober, I can remember the drink burning as it went down. It hit my stomach and I felt it explode. It rippled through my body and gave me the sensation, for the first time in my life, that I was normal.
I felt like I fit in. I felt good. I would chase that feeling for the next 15 self-destructive years.
This behavior caused me lose many things I loved including a military career and then an acting career. The thing I used to help me feel better and fit in was taking away the very things I wanted to do. The moment of truth came when I decided to stop drinking and could not, I tired treatment and the 1 step programs, and they helped but I could not quit. When I discovered some new tools it all made sense and I was not only able to stop drinking, I never had that need to escape. I became a new person, one who was comfortable in my own skin.
I then started a quest to help others, I became a addiction counselor, then l finished a Psychology Doctorate, got licensed and spent 20 years trying to change how addictions are treated, and to give others the tools they need to leave the addiction, once and for all.
This program did not just save my life, it gave me a life worth living. My mission now is get this out to those that so desperately need it. Now with the team at Live Free, a group of like-minded people we are on a mission to change the world, one addict and alcoholic at a time.

Believe in yourself
And all that you are,
Know that there is something inside you
that is greater than any obstacle.
The day I entered third grade, I walked into the class room with so much excitement to meet our teacher, but the teacher was the most hated in the classroom, yet I found something to like about her. A few years later I graduated the 8th grade, walked across that stage with excitement and thrill. For some reason no one else was as excited as I was. I had to question myself as to why I was so much happier than anyone else. I got no answer.
I was always experiencing life on a higher level, feeling passion for every little moment. These feelings gave me a natural euphoria from within in. After a while, that feeling alone just wasn’t enough. I wanted more and wasn’t able to get more on my own, so I thought. That’s when my addiction began. I wanted more of this feeling and turned to drugs to enhance it. This worked for a while. This allowed me a quick access to a powerful feeling. It got me through things that didn’t seem so pleasant at times for example school and some social events. I was good in school and loved being around people, so I was wondering why I looked for something more than I was already getting.
This road became extremely painful. Soon the drugs would wear off or run out and then I was left with a feeling of loneliness. This feeling was worse than my excitement I was feeling in third grade that I thought wasn’t enough. I asked myself how I even got to this point. When I was left with myself and my loneliness, I realized I had a big problem that I was struggling to handle on my own. I was not capable of stopping by myself.
This was the awakening that pushed me to admit I needed help. This was the day I was completely hopeless but became 100% willing to do whatever it took to get my life back, free from addiction, and no limits. Willingness was a gift. A gift I still get goosebumps thinking about today. I had no idea what life would be like but I was either going to do it or die trying.
The second gift I received was a friend. This journey wouldn’t have begun if my friend didn’t reach out a hand and tell me that they believed in me, he told me I wasn’t going to fight this war alone and risked his life in order for me to get another chance at mine. They saw who I truly was; the most unselfish, loving, and generous person they had ever met. Through my journey, I helped him discover his real purpose. For that, I am blessed, I am beyond grateful and these feelings stay within me each and every day.
My journey, for freedom, for self- discovery , integrity, love and for my purpose is how I now experience life on a higher level. Without any enhancements. One word brings me to a higher place every single time, pure euphoria and that word is GRATITUDE.
So today, I am here with my mission to share these gifts that were so graciously given to me with you, to help you find your purpose, the meaning of life and how to live free with passion that you already have within you.
