During my active addiction, I stooped to lows I never though possible. I became everything I despised. A thief, a liar, a bad friend, an unreliable employee, and a untrustworthy son. I never expected my life to become what it had became, and I had no idea that recovery was possible. I found myself at an inpatient treatment facility and was introduced to the 12 steps. By taking my experience from the facility and starting to use the 12 steps and fellowship in my every day life, I’ve been able to completely turn my life around and become the person I have always hoped that I would become. Recovery has been the single greatest gift I’ve ever received, and it is available to anyone who has the desire to recover.

My active addiction left me homeless living in a tent in the woods. I shot dope in my neck and ate out of dumpsters. Once I went to remove my boots and socks after a few months and the whole bottom pad of my feet came off with the socks. At my worst I went into Cecil county detention center at 112 pounds with a broken jaw. Life in recovery has been better then I could ever imagine. It took me a long time of rehabs and 12 step meetings before I got clean. My dad always told me something worth having is worth working for, and i try to work every day to keep my recovery.

Active addiction for me was a constant cloud of horror and hopelessness over my life. It was completely unmanageable and a lifestyle I felt like I couldn’t get out of. Everything seemed so lost, and my life became something I could have never imagined. Now with almost 3 years clean and working a 12 step program, my life in recovery is beautiful. I am the mother I always knew I could be. I can lay my head down on my pillow every night and feel at peace. To me, that is a beautiful life. ❤️
