Where it all started 17/05/08

Daylight? Never thought I’d see it…

I was sat in a group session whilst in a treatment centre for alcohol addiction. Looking out a window in a dream state, as usual, I found myself thinking “Why am I here?” I am in recovery! I would love to give something back… but what? I know! www.in-recovery.com! wouldn’t that be great! I have learnt so much about myself. I have learnt how to care, the only time care ever came up was “I don’t care”. I had no respect, no ambition and most of all NO hope!

Alcohol and drugs took hope away from me

I had no understanding of what was happening to me. I had an illness that I thought was unique, it was only me that had it. Who’s fault was it?¬†Certainly not mine! Everything and everyone around me, that’s where I put the blame. I just didn’t care, and not surprisingly, neither did anyone else. It very nearly cost me my life. And at the time I didn’t really care about that either.

Enough was enough…

I said to myself whilst having a drink after 10 days in a hospital. I was sick of being sick. I needed help and accepted this for the first time in my life. Why? No idea! someone or something was watching me. I¬†am on a journey, if I ever say to myself I’m fixed… That’s the day I will no longer be!

Where are we going?

There are NO governing body/parties.
