I did everything Sara, my sponsor, and my halfway managers suggested I do; go to 90 meetings in 90 days, get a homegroup, do service at that homegroup, start working steps, and no matter how life shows up never use ever again. it just was not an option anymore. I knew in my heart that if I did all of these things I would be safe, my life would change for the better, and I would not die from my addiction. I trusted these women, my higher power, and more importantly I had trust in what my own heart was telling me.I was terrified from passing away from using drugs and that was a beautiful thing for me because it was the first time I was afraid of anything, and I wanted nothing to do with drugs anymore.
As I completed my 90 in 90, I landed a job and was given an opportunity of a lifetime. My bosses saw something in me that I always knew was there but never thought would be tangible unless I were clean, and finally I was!! They told me that if I stayed clean for one year, work hard, and save my money they will help me open my own business.
