I am truly grateful.
Words cannot express how thankful I am for the Devine Intervention that led me to recovery. For all the love, support and encouragement that I have received on my journey so far. I am clear on the fact that the Fellowship of Men and Women in Narcotics Anonymous and everyone here have helped save my life. I am also clear that had I not made the decision to participate in my own recovery none of the things I’ve accomplished would have happened nor would I be able to keep it.

I am by no way lucky. I have been blessed and I will continue to do the work necessary to maintain my freedom from active addiction because I know all to we’ll that everything gained can go up in smoke if I choose to forget where I came from.

I have a purpose today. My life has meaning. I am Happy, Joyous and Free as a direct result of recovery. I look forward to sharing more of my journey into this wonderful, new way of life.

Thank you all for the love and support that you have given me.  I know that I can only keep it,  if I give it away.


  1. I am sorry I am a bit late in congratulating you on this glorious achievement and day! I will not forget this date my friend as it is my birthday so every year we can celebrate over the pond!! Your shares and thoughts are inspirational, I identify even tho my battle is different you have to be proud of your achievements you chose the greatest gift we are given LIFE! May you continue to grow and develop and share with us your wisdom, your pain, your happiness, your successes. I can not contain my happiness for you. Allow yourself a little time and praise yourself. It’s not at all egotistical to be proud right now. Wish I was closer to give you a big hug. Xxxx
