Hello, my name is Justin Farley and welcome to my blog, AlongtheBarrenRoad. I have created this blog hoping to inspire, share advice, reflect on my own journey, and share yours with you. I plan on focusing my posts and poetry around addiction, mental illness, and God.  It is my hope that by sharing my experience and struggles, I will  help you along the road to recovery or improve those “problem” areas in your life.

I am a recovering alcoholic and struggle with panic disorder/agoraphobia.  I am also a singer-songwriter, poet, writer, and run an online bookstore.  You can find my music at http://www.reverbnation.com/justinfarley and my fiction on Amazon.

I hope to engage with you and encourage you to leave comments and feedback.  If you are enjoying the content on my site or know of someone who would, I would be very grateful if you would share it with people you know.  You can contact me at justinfarley@alongthebarrenroad.com or below.
