I’m Nikki I’m an addict. Today I have 533 days clean. I’m on a family vacation in Georgia. It’s been 6 years since I’ve been up here. The last time I was up here I was in bad shape. It’s nice to be around all my family clean. This is the first time me ,my sister and my brother are all clean and together up here. We’re all actually spending quality time together instead of who can get fucked up the fastest.
Appreciate The Small Stuff
Today we went hiking together and went to go see some waterfalls. Going hiking made me realize how out of shape I was in. I was dying going up those hills. Being in such a small town makes me have a lot of gratitude for my hometown Pasco. I thought Pasco was small, but this town doesn’t even have a Walmart. There is no mall, restaurants, or even a movie theater. There is just one fast food place McDonald’s. You have to drive 45 mins to Dothan, Alabama to go into a big city. I tried looking up an NA meeting the closest one is in Alabama.
Persevere With Faith
I’m enjoying relaxing this weekend. It’s a nice get away because the past month has been a little chaotic, with my dad in and out of the hospital, work, relationships, school, and my car problems. But, recovery has given me the tools on how to deal with things when life shows up. Today I’m able to persevere through things with faith, acceptance, courage and support from the people in the fellowship. I have so much gratitude for the people in my life today, my life and my family. I’m missing my Halo, and I can’t wait to get home to him.
A grateful recovering addict, Nikki
