Hi, welcome to my journey to recovery.
I am strong and kindhearted woman who is a wife to wonderful man and a mother to two young children. On the outside, it would seem like I’ve got things together, but between you and I… I so don’t. You know the saying…”we all make mistakes.” Well, I’m living mine as you read this page. A big one. You see, I am a compulsive gambler, and as such have made mistakes that hurt my loved once. Read my full addiction story. I fell into gambling addiction and lost myself.
I never I imagined I would be “one of those people” with an addiction problem. By the time I hit my rock bottom, I felt so low I wanted to quit life. I failed and betrayed my family, and myself. I didn’t think I could live with that guilt.
In order to move forward, I needed to start on a path that would help me heal and make things right again. I started this blog to document that journey. It will serve as an outlet for the emotional roller coaster addiction and addiction recovery create and will include many things-addiction.
In the coming days, weeks, months, etc… my story will unfold. I hope that in that time my actions pave the way to a better future.
I chose to bring it online to share with you and others that I am making a commitment to myself, my family, and to you to take the steps to recovery one day at a time. This blog and you will be my confidant. I need your company, opinions, and support. Please, be a witness and contributor to my recovery. I need a family that I can confide in and share my feelings and experiences with. I need you to be that family.
Please, share my story with friends and family, those who might relate, those who need help, and those who can provide help.
I hope to hear from you soon! To send me a note, click the link below.
