Vickie Gave Herself and Her Family the Gift of Recovery

photo of Vickie in addiction recoveryThree years ago I entered addiction treatment at Stepping Stone a broken woman who had suffered incomprehensible demoralization. I had gotten a DUI and had lost my job. I had had long-term sobriety and went to AA but that was not enough. I decided that my best hope of getting sober would be to go to treatment. I had never been to treatment before but was entirely willing to give it all I had. I knew that I would miss Thanksgiving with my family but also knew that if I didn’t change something I would not be present for future Thanksgivings. In treatment, I had a spiritual awakening through meeting with my therapist who helped me discover what my major character defect was, which was caretaking. I realized that this had affected every relationship in my life. I was able to heal from this and learn to love myself. I did, however, relapse January 28, 2016, and promptly went back to AA the next day. I realized that just treatment alone and partially working my program did not work. I had to immerse myself in AA. By doing this I have had the best sobriety I have ever had in my life. I have a peace that passes all understanding. I love myself, others, and allow others to love me. Please don’t delay treatment because of the holidays. It could be the last holiday that you will ever have or you could be allowing yourself to be transformed to have the best of holidays in the future! God bless! Vickie
