One year ago I chose to drop the victim mentality in exchange for personal responsibility. This is an introduction of me, my story and how I may be able to help you or someone you know struggling with the challenges of addiction and truly finding the road to recovery. In 2011 I consumed 7,200 pills and smoked 12,000 cigarettes. I chose the method of “cold turkey” and since February 14th, 2012.. I am chemical free.
