  • My Personal Honest and Raw Recovery Story

    So here I am almost four years later. Sober, clear headed and with a pep in my step and it took me four years to get here.

    Sobriety is not easy. What could possibly be easy about transforming your entire life? You have to relearn how to communicate, how to handle your emotions, how to allow yourself to feel them and how to deal with life on life’s terms. Basically your a toddler but you the responsiblities of an adult.

    My name is Kim and I am an addict. I started drug and alcohol use at the age of 15 and I didn’t breathe a sober breath until I was almost 32. That is almost 17 years of living with this possession, as I like to call it. A possession thats destination is death and its created by you. You have been taken over by another power and you’ve embarked on a suicide mission to death.

    At 15 I was drinking and smoking weed and ten or so years later I was smoking crack cocaine and shooting heroin. Ive been in mental hospitals, rehabs and hospitals. Ive overdosed, attempted suicide and been strapped down to gurneys and I have pulled through. And so can you.

    Sober life is the greatest gift, besides my son, I have ever been given. I am not ashamed of who I am or what I have done. This suffering is my blessing. I have tapped into the darkest crevices of my soul and Ive found the light.

        Have you gotten a hold of KimDracula? Maybe you should send her a private message?
