Women do recover
This is my story. I always felt different from everyone else because my behavior when I was younger was not normal. I tried alcohol when I was a kid. Started smoking weed when i was in junior high and used speed at 15. I used heavily after highschool and into my college years. I dropped college, lost jobs and my life was spiraling downwards. I got arrested at age 29 for fraud because of my addiction which was 10-27-07. I ended up in Choices Group,Inc. They helped opened my eyes to the gift of recovery.
Recovery has been quite a journey for me because I got to go back to school and will be receiving my Bachelors from Kaplan University in Psychology with an Emphasis in Substance Abuse.
I attend NA meetings, talk to my sponsor, sponsees and support group, work steps, have a higher power?and live the NA program.
I learned that the message is hope and the promise is freedom from active addiction.
I hope my story inspires anyone who has suffered as I have in the past and that there is a way out.
