Little J Jr.: My Recovery Story

A man shares his story of recovery from alcohol addiction.

Hello every one, I am a greatful recovering addict, in long term recovery. I was born in the addictive world, grew up in a strict but loving home with two sisters.I went all the way through school but stayed to myself, and with little freinds. After I was out of school is when I was getting in trouble with the law and drinking, not knowing I was headed for my own addiction. Well after I've seen part of the world, got married, had two boys and got separated from my wife, that is when my addition took off. While in the act of my addiction, I told myself I was not hurting no one but myself—I was in denial. My addiction led me to take from my family, leave my boys home alone, and hurt every one around me. When I finally got sick and tired of being sick, I had to admit that I had a problem, and that I needed to get help.

I found this wounderful program with IOP groups, but I needed more, and found out about New Visions. I went through detox and never looked back. That was July 21, 2014. Ever since my clean date I have been through some training. I am in training to be a Recovery Coach, I have a home group in N.A. and the best thing I have acomplished is my CDCA, which means Chemical Dependency Counselor Assistant. I would have never thought I would ever do this in my life. I want to thank every one that helped me get my life back together at New Vision, thank you all from the bottom of my heart for not saying no, I love you all. So, to any one fighting an addiction, there is help out there. Thanks again, and love each and every one of you.
