ONE YEAR SOBER!!!

ONE YEAR SOBER!!!

ONE YEAR SOBER!!!
I’ve seriously debated for the past month, on whether I should repost such a painful picture displaying the absolute worst moment of my life. I’ve clearly decided to go ahead with my choice. As you all know, I overdosed in my car at a parking lot.. Yes, with my precious baby boy inside the car with me.. but what you may not know is, that overdose happened one year ago TODAY! I’ve decided to repost the picture simply because it displays exactly what heroin addiction is. Also because I do not want to ever forget where the road of addiction has taken me. Little did I know that day, my life was about to change, drastically. Today, I am able to focus on the good that came from that picture. Today, I am a mother to my son, again. Today, I am able to be grateful to actually have solid proof where addiction will only lead you, and today I am able to say that I am ONE YEAR SOBER! I have thousands of shout outs, too many to list. Just know that I DO NOT tackle recovery alone, I have a very large group of supporters standing behind me each and every day to help make sobriety possible for me!

    I have never taken drugs so don’t understand the addiction, but I do believe how hard it is to overcome. Congratulations on your hard work and I wish you only health and happiness from this day forward.
