Music has played a large part in my life. Growing up, my father was a music lover, so we always had a wide variety of music in the house, whether it be records or cassettes. My music collection started fairly young with “Weird Al” Yankovic. This progressed into various other genres and types over the years, ranging from Hard Rock/Metal to Alternative, to Pop, to Swing, to Jazz, to Blues, etc. I’ve pretty much gone through the entire roster, with the notable exceptions of Country and Rap. And while I do have a faint appreciation for very small samplings of these two genres, they aren’t my favourites.
It takes a lot of courage to admit that you have an addiction. Admitting the problem is the first step towards recovery. I’ve struggled with this addiction for many years. It started out innocently, but slowly became something bigger than me – something that I just couldn’t control any longer. That’s when I decided that it was time for me to do something.
