This beauty is my mom! She’s an active al-anon member. She sponsors women in program, and its completely changed her life. I was pissed when she joined, because she stopped enabling me. I needed to fall pretty far, to surrender completely.
She told me she loved me, but had to let me go. •
She tells people “I came into the rooms of Al-anon because of my alcoholic daughter, and stayed when I realized how deeply rooted it was, as a child of an alcoholic.” We carry the message together as speakers in panels. •
So proud to call her my mom. I have a beautiful relationship with her, all due to recovery. . •
For many of us the fear of failure keeps us from putting everything we have into living. When we don’t succeed, we always have the ready excuse, “I wasn’t really trying.” But the more we give to anything, the more we have to give & the better we feel about ourselves...✌️
Recovery is the one thing I’ve actually 100% stuck with, well that, and obtaining my credentials as a drug and alcohol counselor. Both are recovery related. .
I’ve wanted a tattoo to commemorate this beautiful journey, and a reminder daily. My sponsor suggested I wait until 10 yrs, but I’ve been wanting this for years. Recovery is a day at a time, the days have added up into years! It’s a miracle I don’t think or obsess about drinking, the obsession was lifted. .
So I’m going to @jstarbard today! I want a simple Roman numeral date. I’m also going to be covering the tramp stamp on my back. Anyone else have recovery tats? Thoughts? .
I love this and it is absolutely true!💯
We just keep doing the next right thing and our lives get better.🚀
If you knew me a few years ago you might say that I'd never make it.💡
I certainly did not believe that I could ever stop drinking and using.
When I got involved in the program, not only did I get sober physically, but emotionally as well.💪💪💪
I found a life greater than I could have imagined on my best day.👌
I continue to practice my daily routine and my life continuously gets better.✔
I live by this today. ^^^🗝🗝🗝

It never too late to start fresh!🙌🙌
When we accept that we can't do this alone, we start to make progress.
I tried for so long to control my drinking. No matter what I tried it just got worse. I found treatment and a safe place to get back on my feet. Started going to meetings and working with a sponsor.
When I keep putting one foot in front of the other and continue in the right direction, I have peace of mind I never thought was possible.💪
