  1. I’M ENJOYING THIS AMY, IN THAT IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR TELLING MY STORY, SAME KIND OF THING, DIFFERENT PLACE! I HAD A LOT OF THE SAME THINGS HAPPEN TO ME AS A CHILD, INCEST, SEXUAL ASSALT, LOTS OF VERY BAD DECISIONS THAT LEAD TO YEARS IN PRISON, A BAD ATTITUDE, AND SERIOUS HEALTH ISSUES. DURRING MY LAST TRY AT BEING A SUCCESSFUL DRUG ADDICT I WAS ARRESTED FOR BURGLARY AND GIVE THE CHOICE OF DRUG COURT AND REHAB OR ANOTHER 4 YEARS IN PRISON. DRUG COURT SOUNDED REAL GOOD ! SO HERE I AM AT 55 YEARS OLD STILL FINDING MY NITCH AND LEARNING HOW TO LIVE THIS NEW LIFE ! I JUST WANTED TO THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR LIFE, YOU NEVER KNOW WHOM YOU MIGHT HELP BY LETTING THEM KNOW THERE IS LIFE AFTER ALL THAT, A GOOD LIFE WITH REAL FRIENDS, LOVE, CAREER, CHILDREN, FAMILY. OH AND A LOVING GOD OF OUR UNDERSTANDING. AIN’T LIFE GRAND !!!

    1. Yeah, I think that a lot of us addicts have very similar stories in that we all have very rough pasts (most of us at least). I have been so scared to share my story for so long, and I am tired of being scared. I am going to turn 30 in May, and I want my 30’s to be very different from my 20’s. I’m glad that you took drug court. Good luck on it and keep in touch!

  2. Im glsd i took drug court too, thst and the program i went to helped save my life. I to was leary about sharing my past, then i found out that in sharing these things, openly at NA meetings helped me, and in turn helped others, to not be so afraid of the gilt and fear i had over somthing in my lif that was a part of me. I run a survivors group where we share our secrets , its very rewarding to have someone open up and let go of that poison
