Good morning! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. With my story, I want to share it with others, recovering or not, that there is hope. I hope that me sharing, will help just one person. Help one person to find themselves. To love themselves again. To be open and honest with themselves. To know what is best for them and their family, and do it. I have told some people some pretty sad, dark things, but that is how I felt at the time. And from that came the "new" me. The title of my book, "From the Weeds" is based on my life. From the weeds a beautiful flower emerges. With all the crap I have made myself to go through, I have come out on top. So now, the best way to multiply my happiness is to share it with others. Amy Poehler said, "Continue to share your heart with people even if it's been broken." I love that. It doesn't matter who you are or what you have done, you are worth it. You sharing your story may help someone else. Some people are too ashamed of what they have done, or not done, to think there is any hope, or that they deserve anything better than what they have. You are important. You are special. You matter. Know that. Well, that's all I have for today! Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
