- Friends & Family

My sobriety date is September 1, 2017. I recently almost had a year of sobriety and relapsed, so I am just coming back into recovery. I got sick and tired of living that life, so I returned to recovery. I was tired of making the same mistakes like splitting up my family. I feel like I have destroyed so many lives of the people that care about me.
I made the best decision when I put myself into treatment this time around. I am looking forward to getting my daughter back and moving away from the people that I do not need to be around. I look forward to trying to create a new life in recovery.
One thing I have learned this time (that is different than last time) is that I just need to let all of that old stuff go. I think it has finally clicked this time. I have got to let the past go, because I know that I cannot change anything in my past. If you seek recovery, my advice is to see recovery as a new freedom. Real freedom is not having to be a slave to your addiction anymore. It will be the best decision you will ever make!
