“At some point it dawned on me that I might actually be in big, big trouble. The thought was immediately followed by the staggering realization that despite years of slowly killing myself, all I wanted, with more passion and ferocity than I’d ever wanted anything else in my entire life, was to live.”
- Kristen Johnston, ‘Guts: The Endless Follies and Tiny Triumphs of a Giant Disaster’
Prescription drug overdoses have become a widespread epidemic across the United States. According to the CDC more than 6 out of 10 deaths are due to Opioid use. In 2015 alone Opioid overdose claimed the lives of over 33,000 people. This is an astonishing number that continues to grow rapidly each year. Early intervention and treatment can be a successful plan of action to battle this crisis before it is too late. Please feel free to direct message me to discuss ways I can help.
It's Friday! Being sober does not mean you can't partake in the weekend fun. One thing I look forward to most on the weekends are my Sunday morning softball games. What are some of your favorite weekend activities?!
There was a point in my life where I was so low I thought I would never be able to crawl out of the hole I had immersed myself in. To be honest, I wasn't even sure I wanted to get out. My addiction had consumed everything I cared about including my aptitude to live. I had hit rock bottom and it was at that point I decided there was nowhere to go but up. My journey back to the top was grueling and some days I felt I was on the verge of losing all hope. It took time but I persevered. I see now that it was the only choice I had for life and it was the best choice I ever made.

В нашем партнерском тандеме #createtobe sober сompanion, который держит мой профессиональный фокус - Зимина.
