Good morning! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful recovering alcoholic/addict. I have overcome a lot of things I thought I couldn't do. I didn't think I could ever get sober, none the less stay sober, or want to stay sober. I started working out every day and have been for almost 2 months now. I didn't think, I could do that. But if you really put your mind to something, you can do it. That happens with good things and bad things. People get strength from good situations and bad ones. Like the tornado in Washington, over a year ago, that made Washington stronger. It wasn't something we wanted to happen but we overcame it. We came together, worked together, helped each other. Now when another town, close, like Coal City, got hit, it hit close to home, some reached out a helping hand. Mahatma Gahdi said, "Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from indomitable will." You CAN do it. Whatever you want to do, get sober, get a new job, lose 10 pounds, be happy. Put your mind to it and you can do it. You have the strength inside you to do anything you want to. That's all I have for today. Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
