My Name is Rashad Walser and I’m a person in long term recovery from alcoholism and addiction. I have over 4 years in recovery. In that time, I’ve written and published a recovery memoir, began acting and modeling. I received 2 certificates in order to work in recovery, which I have for the last 3 years. I’m a father of 2 and have been a present father since entering recovery. I’ve accomplished every goal in my 5 year plan and I continue to strive for more every day. The core to my recovery is health and wellness. My anchor is the gym and meditation. I practice yoga, mindfulness, healthy coping skills and habits. Along with reading avidly, watching documentaries on recovery, addiction, personal development, finance etc. I work a holistic program so I study all avenues of healthy living and it’s been an amazing journey so far. Life isn’t easy but it’s a lot easier in recovery. My goal is to motivate others to change their lives for the better and to make them understand that it’s a difficult journey. It’s most definitely worth it though.
