September 12th, 2019

I didn’t know what recovery meant until a friend asked me if I was still “in recovery.” Confused, I responded, “Yes, I’m still not drinking, if that’s what you mean.” I know now what I didn’t know then: Recovery means life after substance abuse. It means having a clear mind and a healthy body. It…
