AA has helped me get through some things in my life I would normally use over. I have gotten to meet so many people on this recovery journey that are fighting the same diseases as I am. I have regained my integrity, dignity, morality, my conscience and my confidence. I get to make conscious and healthy decisions today. I get to be a source of strength and hope for the newcomers. This Recovery Journey has given me the opportunity to meet and help people the way others have helped me to get through some situations where I have struggled and I have overcome in my own recovery.
I’m grateful I get to look at myself on a constant basis and see what I can change about myself to be a better person. I could not have done any of these things without the help of you all. People in recovery working a program, the Fellowship family, my sponsor, but most importantly God. I have my relationship with God that I get to build on a daily basis and a faith that is unwavering.
I am so grateful to Fellowship RCO for accepting me, the judge who took a stand for me when I felt hopeless. and I am grateful for the recovery community for welcoming me into their family. I have met and built relationships with people I never would have met without the turn my life took over 4 years ago. Because of my new relationships, I have been able to grow, learn, and become the best version of myself. My life is forever changed. I was able to get a job and have held the same job for over 4 years, I have started my own business, taken on my own sponsees and continue to work on my own program on a daily basis all while being on community control. Recently, Rick Riccardi and Kyle Pollock represented Fellowship RCO in court and spoke on my behalf which resulted in me becoming ankle monitor free!
