As Featured On Katie Couric (taped 1/14) and:
I just have to say that your talks are so inspiring. You are making a difference for me and kindly showing me how I can be a better person for myself all while being a better wife for my husband. I am taking everything you say and applying it to my life as best as I can, and really trying to get everything out of your advice. You inspire me, but more important, I am inspiring myself and it feels good to put that little bit of light back in my soul. LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU!
I feel pride for the first time in my life Craig…thank you:) This is the longest I’ve been clean in my whole life…I’m developing integrity…feels damn good.
There are many of us in the world who choose to suffer in silence. We spend our days living a dismal existence—faintly aware of something greater, something deeper, something higher.
Once in a while someone among us rises and takes a stand—choosing not to accept what so-called ‘fate’ has to offer. Someone who chooses to be determined that he will not let things end this way, with a pitiful whimper.
Just before collapsing under the pressure, in one fellow swoop, he roars mightily and bellows, letting his yet unseen strength be heard.
From here the path begins and many follow—now having seen their own inner light and wanting to rise up.
This inner light, shown to me by sheer force by Craig several years back, was the spark that lit the fire of my recovery.
This is to commemorate Craig in all he has done and to remind us that had he not chosen to let out his mighty roar and dig himself out of his own struggles, we may all have been careening down the narrow and steep path to destruction right now.
Here’s to courage and the value of having guts, Craig.
Your lifelong student, Rob
“This inner light, shown to me by sheer force by Craig … was the spark that lit the fire of my recovery.”
I’m at a point where I’m ready to be a man and take charge of my future. Craig has helped me so much with a lot of things . . . Craig helped give me the tools to travel down the right path.
