So my ex-sponsor just hung up on me. I was explaining how I would like his help in working the twelve steps. As I was letting him know that I had been clean for over 500 days he wanted me to start going to 90 meetings in 90 days. When I explained the process IContinue reading “My Ex-Sponsor”
I went into the rehab facility on March 10th 2020 and left only eight days later. COVID was spreading and I was afraid of being quarantined in the facility for longer than my stay. To be honest I had no idea what was going to happen and I didn’t want to find out by gettingContinue reading “My Recovery”
Step 1 – We admitted we were powerless over our addiction—that our lives had become unmanageable. This step is single handedly the most important step in my mind. It is the building block in which all the other steps build upon. Anything growing needs a foundation and Step One provides that for us. The wayContinue reading “My Step One”
I remember it all started around eight years old. Mom had left and Dad was taking care of me and my two sisters. Everyday my Dad would make me bologna for lunch. I hated bologna but there was my sandwich waiting day after day. So at school I wouldn’t eat lunch. I would keep myContinue reading “My Food Addiction”

I hope to share some strength and some hope. I am going to start out with how I am feeling currently, which isContinue reading “Angry, Aggravated and Annoyed – But That’s Okay”
Shifting from shame, blame, ignoring as it’s so common with the addicted person – to loving-kindness. Holding space for our loved one will make all the difference. It’s the little things that build up over time. It really does make a difference. It may seem difficult in the storm, but if you hold on youContinue reading “Holding Space For Love”
I support my loved one through his battle with addiction. The process of support has not been an easy road and I nagged, yelled, begged, and controlled. My behaviors really perpetuated a lot of the drinking. I did not cause his drinking, but I did contribute to it with my behaviors. I turned to theContinue reading “My Side Of The Story; Recovery From The Effects Of Addiction”
I am going to start with a little bit of a background here with my sister. Her drug of choice was heroin and meth. She really used drugs to cope with our childhood and the chaotic household we grew up in due to untreated mental illness in our mom and addiction in our dad. TheContinue reading “Helping to Get a Loved one Sober by using CRAFT principles”

It was March 10th, 2020. I remember the tears in my mother’s eyes as she dropped me off. I’ll never forget as I got out of the passenger seat of the car my mother asked me to grab the tissues in the backseat and place them in the front. That destroyed me inside right thereContinue reading “First Rehab Stay”
