Hello and welcome to my first post. For this entry I’ve decided to write a little background information about myself. First off, my name is Jessica and I am 25 years old. I currently live in the frozen tundra of Green Bay, Wisconsin. I live alone with my kitty companion, Pip. Some of my hobbies and interests include reading, artistic and crafting pursuits, playing video games, cooking and baking, and I am planning on expanding my hobbies and interests as I go through my recovery journey. I have recently just come to terms that I am an addict, and have been for about 7 years now. They say the first step is acknowledging your addiction and the second step is receiving help. I am now on the second step on my journey. I just recently started seeing an individual therapist. After two sessions she made the requirement that I need to enroll in a support and treatment program for my addiction. I chose a program that caters to women only, however, I’m still on the waiting list. I have to call the program every week to make sure I am still on the list. I sometimes feel like I’m in some sort of a limbo. I want to start my group therapy as soon as possible and attack my addiction head on. I’ve been doing well staying sober lately with the support of my family, self-control, and staying away from my triggers. If you are reading this, I would like to know, where you are in your recovery journey? Are you just now realizing that you have an addiction? Are you attending some sort of individualized therapy, group therapy, or AA/NA? I would love to hear from you and I do respond to my comments. Thank you for taking the time to read my post and have a wonderful evening!
