I realize that it is a challenge to believe our recovery has progressed this far this quick. When we first started it was all doom and gloom. There were no positive stories. We believed that we were stuck with this addiction and that I was going to have to live the rest of my life surrendering and attending meetings. This is not how we wanted to spend the rest of our lives.
My therapist was the first one to give us hope for a better future. I made a choice to do the hard work instead of taking the easy way of staying in my familiar life. This is real and there is hope. I will be happy to talk to anyone and answer any question about my recovery.
