What it was like?

It was a battle between the light and the dark. I was constantly arguing with my addiction. Trying to weed out the lies it told me versus the truth my soul knew. It was a constant tug of war spiritually, mentally and physically.

What happened?

By the grace of God, Adam Vibe Gunton and Recovered On Purpose magically appeared in my life. It became my mission to not only say that, but mean it. I am recovered on purpose.

What it is like now?

For my birthday on October 2nd 2022 I published my very first book called S.Y.L Say You Love a testimony of triumph over the darkness of childhood sexual trauma and addiction. I am dedicated to help raise the vibration of the planet. Planting seeds of unconditional love,forgiveness and conscious understanding into the hearts and minds of recovered addicts, addicts in active addiction or anyone dealing with someone still suffering. It was a testimony that saved me, and I firmly believed that if we can change our world from the inside, we can truly change the world.
