TODAY, Yvonne has been sober for 1 year

I started doing drugs and drinking at the age of 13. My parents partied when I was younger and addiction runs in my family. After hitting my rock bottom at 36 years old, rehabs, and jail, I finally decided to change my life. My dad has been clean now for 15 years. My brother has been clean now for 2 and a half years. They are both inspirations for me.

On January 3rd 2017 I will have 1 year. I couldn't do it without God, narcotics anonymous, my family (real friends), and my super supportive boyfriend. Now I do step work, service work, have a sponsor, and do whatever I can do to inspire others.
