Hooray!!! for recovey

Thank God!!! People will stand up and say Hooray for recovery!!! Bill Moyers in his documentary "Close to Home" states, "Alcoholics and addicts who are in recovery need to stand up and say, I am free of alcohol and drugs and treatment works." No, we would rather spend our money on building bigger jails. I loved my work with the FASD families and with alcoholics and drug addicts. I have lived with the stigma of being a "women addict and alcoholic." But I am Free At Last.

I intend to make the women's group of AA @ 1736. 5:30 PM Thursday my home group. Hooray for Bonnie and all people that overcome the "brain disease of addiction." STAND UP AND BE COUNTED AND HELP THE ALCOHOLICS/ADDICT THAT IS STILL SUFFERING.
