Let’s face it. Most of us have done things in our past that we are not proud of. Okay. ALL of us have done things in our past we’re not proud of. Especially when we were in the throes of our addiction. Today though, we’re not the same people we were when we did those things. We refuse to let our past define us. 

 

How do we do that when some of us have some really bad shit in our past? Well…. Likely, not overnight. It’s indeed a process but making peace with our past is something that we ALL do in order to have a better today and brighter tomorrow. 

 

This week we have a hell of a warstory from Christina who shares what it was like when she was out on the streets doing ANYTHING for her next fix. From prostitution to robery, her addiction literally had her resorting to some behaviors that in retrospect seem pretty crazy, as they often do when we look at it through a sober lens. Here what it took to finally get her to take a life in recovery seriously and how she works to stay sober and healthy today, one day at a time. 

 

Thanks Christina for sharing your story!
