My journey to recovery was a long slow process, full of impulse-led decision making and a hundred day ones.

Nicole is an east coast mama in recovery. A survivor of all the things, she is a fierce advocate for women, loves the "f-word," practices kindness, and loves patchwork. Nicole is a newly single mom living north of Boston with her two sons.
This is by far the hardest time in my four and a half years of recovery. I haven’t thought about drugs much, but man…that devil drink.
My life has crashed…and I can’t turn to using drugs or alcohol. So I’ve turned to my old friend. Sex. And I’m beginning to wonder if I’m still “using.”
Finding that I had the freedom to choose whether or not to have sex was a revalation to me after I got sober. I’d never felt like I had the choice before.
When I got sober, I had zero aspirations beyond wanting to stay alive and keep my son. Thankfully, the longer I stayed in recovery, the bigger my world got. And now I want MORE!
