First I’ll start by saying, I’m Kjarsti and I’m a grateful recovering Heroin, Coke, Alcohol, basically anything I can get my hands on, addict.
I have been sober for 220 days today! What a miracle. It has been the most challenging and amazing thing I’ve ever gone through. This is my first post so bear with me.
Because I was numbed by drugs for so long, I’ve never known what truly makes me happy. But the day I got off Heroin and Coke, Nov. 11 2015, I knew that was the beginning of a whole new life. That was the day I was caught for selling drugs and taken to jail for 2.5 months. This is where my recovery really began and the first time I was actually absent from any mind altering substance in about 12 years. I’ll say that going to jail was one of the best thing to ever happen to me, other was becoming a mother, of course. But while in jail I thought I could get out and just drink, so that’s exactly what I did. I learn very quickly that that wasn’t possible and moved into Sober Living. We’ll get more into that.
This blog is just a beginning for me to learn my own way of communicating my thoughts and feelings. I hope that by starting this I can help someone along the way. I feel a passion for expressing my experience, strength, and hope. So please if you have questions, do not hesitate to ask.
This post is to just open up this blog so there will be much more to come so stay tuned. Thanks!
