I am a 54 year old published author, I share my stories on line and in print. It is my goal to one day be able to share them in person at treatment centers throughout the nation. I share my personal experiences about my past drug use for one very big reason. My hope is that my stories will encourage, motivate, and support the addict who still suffers and show them that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
I have waged a personal war against the disease of addiction and it is my goal to take back from him as many people as possible and show them there is a good life waiting for them without drugs.
This is a safe place for all to come, read, share, and hopefully begin to heal. I have done many horrible things in the name of my addiction and I want people to know that whatever it is they are ashamed of that they did that its going to be ok there not the only one. To let them know they are not alone and that sometimes good people do bad things but that does not make them a bad person, Just one needing a little help.
I have learned a couple of priceless lessons on this journey with the biggest probably being that no matter how hard things get, no matter how cold and alone you feel, no matter how bad it starts to hurt that Suicide is NOT the answer!
"Alone we don't stand a chance, but together, we can change the world, I love you.
