Spiritual Soldiers hasn't been created as a business or brand trend. It's a movement, a way of life. A call to arms to raise awareness for addiction. We want to take away the depiction of the old man wearing a torn and ratty, tweed trench coat with the finger tips cut off his gloves clutching a bottle of whisky draped in a brown paper bag. We want to take away the misconception that "it could never happen to you" and place it right in your back yard. The reality is everyone is or has known some one who has been affected by addiction.
1 in 5 people are suffering from addiction in Canada alone. Only about 11% of that population is able to get help through treatment. Whether that is due to lack of support, space, or funding, this is unacceptable. Spiritual Soldiers is going to donate a percentage of its profits to the war against addiction. Through our clothes we want to instil a message.
The wait is over!!! we are proud to ANNOUNCE that our new line of clothing is now available!!

Sometimes on days like this I need to take a step back and look at how amazing my life is today, and how greatful I am to have recovery. To wake up every morning sober, with a smile and positive outlook on how the day will turn out is truly a blessing. Today I don't have to worry about struggling and I don't have to worry about what kinds of trouble I may get into. Today I don't have to worry about any hardships that might be thrown my way, because I embrace the beauty in the world and accept life on life's terms, I have to always remain teachable and help others. Today I am spiritually fit and I don't need to worry because I know things will just work out exactly the way they are supposed to. When I laugh or smile it's not fake it's real, they are real emotions that I am finally able to feel again. It is possible to recover from that seemingly hopeless state of mind and body. It is possible to live a life filled with hope, faith, and courage. I am living proof of that. My life is not a struggle anymore because I surround myself with positive people and I try my best to do the right thing. Today I live happy joyous and free and you can to !! @bmariee3
