I picked up my 3 year chip last week !!!!!
And that's all down to you guys........stripping me back, building me up, showing me the way and giving me some tools.
All I had to after leaving you was do as I was told. Work the 12 step programme, learn and grow. And I have, by the grace of God.
Sadly I am mortally aware that not everyone makes it, having lost two of my peers and seen a number of others 'go back out'.
The pompous bitch with her head up her arse that God sent to the Providence Project 3 years ago is no more. (Thankfully). In her place is a bog standard alcoholic trying to stay sober one day at a time, help others to do the same, who is comfortable in her own skin and who I hope has found some level of humility. ( I think being made to clean the toilets for 28 days helped with that)!!!
Joking aside I would not miss the reunion for the world. When I left Provy 3 years ago I made a resolution that wherever I was in the world I would always return for that. My roots are there and it is an opportunity for me to give personal thanks to all who have been part of my journey.
This time 3 years ago I wanted to die, Today my life is happy, joyous and free. I have achieved pretty much everything I wrote in my 5 year sobriety letter, and my recovery continues to strengthen and expand, along with life, as long as I keep doing the do's.
Please would you be kind enough to circulate this email amongst the staff so that they have some positive feedback and gratitude for the amazing work that they do.
You did it for me guys.
Thank you again from the bottom of my unbroken heart, my whole soul and my restored spirit.
I would be thrilled to attend the reunion and look forward to seeing you all there.
Lots of Love and Every Blessing
