Hello:) I'm a trained listener and look forward to talking with you! I am 31, live in Florida and Minnesota. I am a former addict and have been through a lot in my life's journey. I am a brother, a son, a dog enthusiast, a hockey player, a golfer, a freight broker, a decent painter and an addict in long term recovery. I have been in and out of recovery for 10 years (since the age of 21). I have lost everything due to this disease, I have gotten it back due to recovery. I lost it all again because of the disease and I am still working now on getting stuff back. When I say stuff it isn’t all material, in fact it is the opposite. I am getting back my honesty, my courage, my faith, my hope, my trust, my integrity, my family, my friends, my dogs😉 back. It isn’t an easy road but it is a road worth traveling to get your life back. I no longer have the pain, shame, guilt, hurt that I once had. I owe it all to recovery and I wouldn’t trade it for the world! I can relate to pretty much any situation so don't be shy with me. I am very outgoing and will be here for you no matter what. Currently I am in the intern program with 7 Cups of Tea. I look forward to helping:)
