Tim’s story isn’t much different than most people in recovery.
Initially, drugs and alcohol acted as a social lubricant and the lifestyle was fun, but somewhere along his journey things took a turn for the worse.
His addiction had many low points, but the one moment that sticks out most is when he couldn’t be by his mom’s side for a brain operation because he was too dope sick.
After a family intervention, Tim made it into treatment, started working a 12-Step program of recovery, and moved into a sober home in Florida.
Eventually, Tim started writing a recovery blog that evolved into Sober Nation.
He attributes Sober Nation’s success to getting out of the way and creating a platform for people in recovery to connect and share their stories.
Today Tim Stoddart is 10 years sober and he continues doing his part to show others that recovery is possible for anyone who wants it.
