This month marks the 6 year anniversary of my being free from the crippling addiction to cocaine, alcohol, and crack cocaine which almost took my life in 2008.
Thank you to my sweet family and friends for standing by me through the 16 years it took me to land after taking off. I owe every minute of this hard fought-for life I live every day now to the hard fought-for love each of you gave me then, and the seemingly boundless compassion you have shown me in the years since.
If any of you reading this are struggling with addiction or are feeling hopeless about ever feeling better, please message me here or send me an email at Logan@LoganLynnMusic.com — I am happy to help connect you to resources where you live anytime.

In The Trenches: “The Party’s Over. Now What?”
It’s no secret that I struggled with an addiction to cocaine and alcohol for many years – Sixteen of them, to be exact. A quick Google search of my name uncovers that though, so this isn’t breaking news. I was always very openly strung out and continued to be open throughout the process of cleaning up, nearly 5 years ago at this point. By the time my active using had come to a close, I had wrecked my life many times over, hurt everyone around me, and squandered professional opportunities the likes of which I will never see again. It has been a long road to put things back to how they are today, and there are still times where that messy person appears, ready as ever to destroy all over again.
It seems you can take the drugs away from the insecure screw-up, but the feelings which led to the drugs in the first place remain. Sometimes they are small and manageable, other times they are too large to hold. Even now, all these years later, not a day goes by where I do not think about giving up. It usually happens when I get my feelings hurt or if I feel overwhelmed by the extreme realness of the universe, which tends to hit me in unexpected waves at the most inopportune times. In these moments I would love nothing more than to ease my aching shame with a drink or hide myself from you, the world, in some kind of thick, white, transformative smoke. There are times where I would literally give everything just to feel nothing.
The trouble with me feeling nothing is that it comes at great cost. I know how that story ends. I lose my work, then my friends and family, then my belongings, then my life. Boom. It’s over.
