What it was like?
I was not respected or trusted by my family, friends or my self. I was totally unreliable, using drugs when I needed to be at my parents 25 wedding anniversary and other important events. I was so deep in legal issues I was sure I would spend my life in jail.
I looked in the mirror and saw a raging, desperate self, so far from my true self that I desperately cried out for help. I felt warmth and something hugging me, it scared me, but I worked with it and went to AÀ 3 x per day if I could... one day at a time
What it is like now?
I have the best life, more than I ever could imagine. I have moved back to my native land to be with my native family, Athabaskan Indians in Alaska, I am a social worker and I used to call them the busy bodies, I have a truly loving and supportive sober husband, so much that I cannot even express and I know one day at a time the promises just keep unfolding
