Good afternoon! My name is Lauren, and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. When I was drinking/using, there were times when all I wanted to do was get out of the situation I was in, but I didn't want to DEAL with it. I wanted an EASY way out. I would be in trouble with the law or have bills in collections. Of course I wanted it all to just go away. But that obviously wasn't gong to happen, but you know what I did. I didn't face my problems head on, I didn't suck it up and deal with them. I finagled my way or cheated my way through them. The bills just kept piling up. For me, out of sight, out of mind, so I really didn't care at that point. But sure enough when I got sober, and wanted to clear up all the messes I had made, that's when I realized how many messes I really had. Today, I try to face all my problems head on. I know I am going to eventually have to deal with them anyway, so I might as well get it over with. Or at least start on it. It isn't always easy, and some days I still struggle, but I know I am not alone. God is always there for me to ask guidance from. I can pray to Him anytime. I also have friends today that give good advice and that truly care about me and my family. So know you are not alone in this either. Don't forget to sign up for my book giveaway.

Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
