little about me
Who is Addict Named Mom?
For my own personal reasons, if it’s alright with you, I’d like to remain anonymous.
There’s something exciting and mysterious about that. Don’t you think? Not only that but the unknown scares the shit out of people! I kinda like that!
The truth is, my name and face are not important anyway. What is, however, is what sets me apart from all the other blogs out there.
Before I get started, you should probably go brew yourself some coffee and get comfortable because you and I are about to get intimate!
Besides, isn’t that the whole point of all of this?
Hopefully, you’ve found yourself a nice comfortable spot on the couch with a cup of coffee with your feet propped up because, well, you deserve it!
Now, who am I? I am you, and you are me. We are the same. Our features, names, and sizes along with whatever else you can (insert here) to differentiate us; don’t matter.
What matters is that I am an addict and if you found yourself here, you probably are too.
Beyond that, we are moms. And, being a mom is hard enough as is. Once you place this relentless mental anguish caused by addiction into the equation… Well, shit can get messy! Cant it?
Not the stinky diaper kind of mess either! Ya know, when newborns have a blowout kind of mess –– yeah not that kind.
For us, it’s bigger than changing diapers and getting shit on our faces. I mean, if it was as simple as wiping the shit off our face –– everyone would be doing it.
Anyway, I have been clean from drugs a few Just for Today(s).
This is a miracle, of course, but if drugs were my only problem when I found myself in the rooms of a twelve-step meeting, then I should be cured.
Problem is, you can’t cure addiction. You can only arrest it. Which by the way, comes with a lot of work.
Being that drug use is merely only a symptom of The Disease of Addiction… What happens when you stop using drugs? What are the other symptoms that begin to surface? These are only a few of the things I will be sharing with you.
The kind of information that only an addict in recovery knows through the personal experience of living with the disease and placing it under arrest.
These other blogs on the internet are great resources for help, but I found myself called to a greater purpose when I realized that the amount of personal blogs available for addicts is few and far between.
Mostly every one of them talks solely about alcoholism because let’s face it, it’s more social media acceptable in today’s world to concede to being an alcoholic than being “addicted” to anything not sold in stores.
By no means, am I some sort of professional.
I don’t have a Ph.D. or some other high-ranked degree from a prestigious school of my choice.
I am just your average thirty-something wife and mom that once lived a life hopelessly addicted to drugs –– engulfed in the belly of addiction –– that found a way out.
I hope that you will stick around to get to know me better as I take you into my life –– The good, bad, and the ugly.
I don’t write here to get rich or to be famous. I write because it helps me and gives me a sense of purpose and direction. I love to read and write and most of all, helping other women follow this same path. If I can do it, you can too. I believe in you.
