What it was like?
It was dark, lonely, and painful. I felt like I was the only person who was going through it. I found myself sick, malnourished, and in and out of jails and institutions. There were no limits to what I would do to continue my path of destruction.
I came to a fork in the road. Where I no longer was getting relief from drugs and alcohol. I knew if I didn't stop, I would end up dead on or in prison for the rest of my life alone.
What it is like now?
Now, I am honest, reliable, loving, and approachable. I have dedicated my life to helping others struggling with this chronic disease. By sharing my compassion and experience, I am able to connect with others who are still struggling or in the beginning stages of recovery. Assisting others enter into the right rehab, and continuing there care as a recovery coach has allowed me an opportunity to be part of the solution. I have been given the gift of life and want to share it with anyone who wants what I have. This fuels my recovery and has given me a sense of purpose I lacked during active addiction!
