My name is Sara and I live with my 4 children and significant other of 6 years. I am a recovering addict and have been clean for over 2 years. I could say I have lost a lot, with my past drug use, but being in recovery I have gained even more. I have a open mind and I can see more than most. I have appriciation for things that I feel most people take for granted. I write now to tell my story. I feel that there are people out there struggling with addiction, that need to know that they are not alone, and there is hope for them, even though most days they don't feel that way. I know how it feels to be there, and I know how I got out. There are others that have been lucky enough to never of had to struggle with an addiction to drugs, but they have a loved one that currenty is, it is my hope that by me telling my story to them that maybe it will help them gain a special insight on what it is like for their loved one, to know what it is that they are going through, and with that insight be able to reach out to them and maybe help them into recovery. I know that when I was active in my addiction I not only hurt myself, but I hurt the people that I love and that love me even more than I hurt myself. I know that I am asked all the time what it is like to be a addict, and I know that I meet people all the time who will tell me that they have never struggled with addiction, yet they take precription pills that they can't go without. There is a lot of misconception about addiction, what a addict is, and about recovery of addiction. I always say that recovery is life, there is no real difference.
