"I’m 30 years old and I am 8 years and 8 months clean. I was born in New York, but I grew up in Boca Raton. In high school is when I casually started dabbling in substances and around that time in Boca, heroin wasn’t a thing. But in South Florida, we had a serious pill problem. It spilled into Boca and I was introduced to oxycontin and all that stuff when I was 16. Unbeknownst to me, they had the same side effects as a heroin withdrawal does. I thought it was just another party drug cause I used everything else as a party drug. Started dabbling into that, and physically got addicted, and then mentally of course. I was always very insecure, so for me it was a form of getting outside of myself; especially with stuff that was happening in the household. Addiction was the darkest times of my life. And it’s so crazy because I don’t even remember a lot of it, but it’s just pure misery. Honestly, the one sole reason that brought me to recovery was getting pregnant with my son. That was the start of it. Of course I was miserable, and I felt defeated, but he’s the one that helped me get clean. Being in recovery is amazing. There’s a saying in the rooms, I may be butchering it, but “my worst day in recovery doesn’t even match my worst day in active addiction.” So, not that everything is always peaches and cream in recovery, I mean everybody has their ups and downs, but I wouldn’t trade that for going back to how things were before. To any others or families struggling, my advice is to hold on, pain ends."

July 10th Inspired by-Strange Changes~David Bowie At one point in our lives a lot of us lived in an environment in which change happened suddenly, violently, and traumatically. It’s no doubt that the reverb from such an upbringing has a lasting effect on us. When triggered by change, old responses within us show up without warning and create tremors of terror within us. 😬🤭. Today, when faced with change, we must remember that we are no longer vulnerably alone, but securely connected to a community of people that want nothing more than to foster our well-being🥰. In order to keep this connection strong💪🏻, we must continue to reach out🤝 to others and talk about the changes we are facing. Today’s Chorus: 🎼When faced with change, the only change we can really make is how we respond to it.🎼#soberlife #recoveryrocks #recoveryispossible #serenity #addiction #addictionrecovery #treatment #supportrecovery #rockingrecovery #traumahealing #musiccares #recoveryunplugged #rockcoverymeditationbook #amazonbooks
FRESH is in! Here, I prepped Crystal’s face, neutralizing certain areas (rosacea), for a “healthy no-makeup” lightweight finish.

Enjoying food is an easy way to reconnect with yourself and your body. Just breathe, focus on your body and eat. No walking, screens or music. If you want to take it to the next level, try thinking only about food you're eating. Try to notice all the tastes and textures of what's on your plate. Pay attention to your belly too - it will be able to finally relax. Notice your breathing - make it deeper and more steady. You will see how the body tension will subside. It may feel uncomfortable at first. It will definitely be "unproductive" time. But that's not the point. We are already being too productive and work too hard. We deserve to take a break and enjoy ourselves. This is the easiest way to unplug and unwind during the day and also to pay attention to yourself. We don't do it often enough. Be kind to yourself:) . . . . . #lunchtime #unplug #unplugandplay #recoveryunplugged #lifeunplugged #selfhealing #highestself #selfacceptance #selfhealing #selflovejourney #lunchoftheday #lunchspecial #worklunch #sparkjoy #findjoy #disconnect #reconnect #reconnectwithyourself #reconnection #reconnectwithyournature #wellnesstips #wellnessjourney #wellnesswarrior #wellnessblogger #emotionalwellness #wellnessjunkie #naturalwellness #mentalwellness #wellnesslife #wellnessgoals

“I was a 25M, which is a multimedia illustrator, and I was stationed in Fort Meade, MD. When I was 19, I got caught underage drinking and I received an article 15, and I had to do the Army Substance Abuse Program. When I left the military, I went back home and started school. I think I’ve always been an addict. I started using recreationally around the age of 18, but I really started full fledge using to cope with things when my boyfriend passed away in 2016 from a heroin overdose. That was the first time I ever did meth, August 1st, 2016. I will remember that day forever. I called Dane and told him I used, so he told me he was going to get heroin sent to him because I got high. His friend mailed him heroin from New Jersey, and he was dead by the 8th of August. Dane had 4 years clean before he had used that weekend. After that I started using habitually, I lost everything in such a short amount of time. I wanted to get clean for the last couple of months that I had been using. It started just getting worse and worse, I was homeless and I was in a really abusive relationship. I just remember crying and talking out loud saying ‘I need help, help me get clean.’” Jessica M.
