 In recovery, one of the things we learn very early on is...

I completely agree with this philosophy and have adopted it as a way of life. But after awhile these individual days start to add up to weeks, months and years. Today marks 335 days I have been sober. 335 days is also equivalent to 11 months.

A very important milestone is 30 days away.  By the grace of god, I hope to be able to say on August 30th that I am ONE year sober. 

As a preemptive celebration, I am raising money for Minnesota Recovery Connection's third annual Walk For Recovery. I will be participating in the walk and hope to raise $365 by August 30th - a dollar a day that I have been sober.

Minnesota Recovery Connection has been a resource I have leaned on during these last 11 months and will continue to do so in the future. They work locally with Hazelden where I attended out patient treatment last fall. The recovery community has been very important to me as I re-learned who I am, what I believe in and how I plan to live my life each day.

Addiction has affected a number of family members in my life and a number of friends. It's a very real disease that affects all aspects of living. I choose to talk about living in recovery because I hope to help others who are affected by this disease see that recovery is possible.

Thank you in advance for your support!
