How to overcome your addictions and become who you REALLY are . . .

Updated on September 6, 2008

Do you struggle with overwhelming attachments (addictions) to substances, behaviors or people?

Are you trying to find a sense of peace and serenity that seems, thus far, to elude you? To you find "answers" and "fixes" only to watch them evaporate in the cold reality of daily living?

I've been there too and Iwant to help. In the process I know I'll grow in wisdom from sharing with you from the heart. Having lived "clean and sober" and (increasingly) with wonderful bursts of sanity and serenity for over 30 years now, I want to try this new-to-me online means to connect with others who are on this journey.

This "connection" is vital! Experience has taught me that it is precisely these sorts of authentic human to human linkages that can and do offer a lasting "balm" and a "way through" for those of us who have tried everything and anything to escape our terrifying awareness of the "empty hole" that lives at our core . . . But there is a way - a way to leave the pain and fear behind . . . and you and I both know that we already have it within our grasp. The "secret" is that we need each other's fellowship and "compassionate presence" in order to be reminded of how to crawl out of the "holes" into which we are prone to stumble. And those "holes" are there for us to trip into for as long as we need them.

If any of my rambling makes sense for you - then you are a probably either crazy or a kindred soul - or most likely both. I am honored to share this path with you.

      Marina:) I love my addictions and would never give them up for the world! Having said that other addiction could help me become more me if i were to give up but it's very hard!

      from a crazy or a kindred soul;)
