I'm using this journal to express myself freely, throughout my journey in early recovery. I don't have very many people to speak with about my addiction outside of my family, which can make facing the struggles of addiction especially challenging. I have already received countless positive responses from other members of DF; I look forward to sharing my story with others who may benefit from its presence. I appreciate all feedback. I need help; I'm ready to face my addiction head-on, and I'm ready to heal.
