THE MESSAGE IS HOPE.
THE PROMISE IS FREEDOM.
THAT AN ADDICT, ANY ADDICT. CAN STOP USING DRUGS, LOSE THE DESIRE TO USE, AND FIND A NEW WAY TO LIVE.
I remember when I thought that I didn’t matter. That no one gave a damn if I lived or died. I felt like I was invisible, alone, miniscule. I was defeated by a disease that wanted me dead and was slowly chipping away at what was left of my being. I was dead inside, mentally distraught, physically worn out and spiritually bankrupt. I wouldn’t wish that kind of despair on anyone.
I am so grateful to have a purpose today. Recovery has given me a reason to live. I believe in myself and I know that there’s a reason I was spared the destruction, desperation and eventual death. I have been given a second breath of life to share my story and spread hope.
I know that my story is important.
That my hopes and dreams count.
That my voice matters.
I want others to know that theirs does too. That they to can come back from their addiction, live life and not just exist in a state of utter desperation, degradation and isolation.
You Do Matter. Help is available all you have to do is ask. Give yourself a break.
WE DO RECOVER.
ONE DAY AT A TIME.
Peace and Blessings
