Which is fine if she was telling the truth. I am an ex heroin addict, I'm almsot 5 months sober and am VERY active in the alcoholics anonymous community. I'm in the 1% result in those great statistics you read about heroin addicts that stay clean longer than a month. I'm currently working the 12 steps with my sponser and have changed so much already. My mother does not support me or my recovery, in fact, she has done everything she can to cause harm. She told my father, she'd rather me be dead before I get custody of my daughter back. All my drug counselors have met my mother in family sessions, and gave me the advice to stay away from her because she's harmful to my sobriety, and that I need to get my daughter out of her house asap. They think she's an alcoholic, but I told them I wasn't sure. She claims to be in naranon, but it's obvious she's not or she would be working the 12 steps of naranon, and she's not. She says on here that I'm lying about my sobriety, which if she was going to naranon or al anon she'd know AA is a program of rigorous honesty, and I'd have to change my sobriety date. And withholding a secret like that could kill me. And face it, I wouldn't be so clean and clear-headed every day. This stuff my mom has said and done not only makes me angry it hurts, I feel completely rejected by her. I understand us addicts cause emotional harm to our family, but shouldn't our family just be happy that we're clean and sober and alive? My dad welcomed me home with open arms after rehab, and I hurt him more than my mother. He told me he's just happy I'm alive and well and in active recovery. When I get to step 9 (amends) my sponser said I won't be making a formal amends to my mother because she's so harmful to my sobriety. You want advice family and friends of addicts? Go to al anon...and please stop believing the sob stories of a certain "cola" from las vegas. Get both sides, just ask me. I'm honest today and living in reality.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
