Welcome to my website!
If you are reading this then you must either be an addict or perhaps someone you love is an addict?
Addiction is a truly horrific problem to have, for the addict and the loved ones of an addict.
The reason I started this site is the hope that my story can serve as an inspiration to others that are still struggling with their addictions. I would like to share everything I have learned that has helped me in the hopes that just one person can be free from the chains of addiction.
If I am alive today and working a program of recovery there is hope for every single addict and alcoholic. I am living proof. I ask that if I share anything that captures your interest that you get involved on my site by leaving a comment. I plan on sharing many of my experiences, the good and the bad with you. I hope that in doing so you gain something from it.
So now to me and my journey with addiction.
I started drinking when I was 14 years old and from that moment my life changed for the worse. I spent the next 15 years making a mess of everything in my life. Hurting myself, those I love and everyone around me.
I have many labels:
- drug addict
- sex and love addict
- nicotine addict
- self harmer
- bipolar disorder
I could probably add in workaholic, spending addict, sugar addict and caffeine addict! (Cross addiction is something I will also be addressing on my website.)
In 2008 at the age of 29 years I finally made it into a rehabilitation facility and I have managed to stay sober since then. My path has not always been easy and I still struggle often, but the truth is that no matter how bad my life gets in recovery having a drink or taking drugs will not make anything better.
Even my worst day in recovery is better than my best day using.
Every day I am grateful for another day clean and for all the gifts that recovery has given me.
I love comments and interacting with my readers to please leave a comment!
