My Mom often says 'one day you might write a book my girlie'... Well, maybe... maybe not. It sounds like a lot of work!
I do love to write. Always have. I've owned a journal as far back as I can remember... Can't say I ever intended to start a blog though. Perhaps because I've never found typing out my thoughts to be as therapeutic as putting pen to paper.
Why the blog now then? Well... I figured it's a good way to kill two birds with one stone... Yuck, I've never really liked that phrase... a) It's cliché as fooook, and b) Why would I want to kill a bird? Not to mention two... Rephrase: it's a good way to feed two birds with one scone! Ja... cheesy, but better.
I get to write about stuff, all kinds of stuff, and you get some insight into the mind of an addict. It’s all kinds of, um, fun.
This blog came from my experiences, and I intend to keep it as authentic as possible… To stay sober, I have to stay honest… and I REALLY want to stay sober. It's still early days, and already sober is lekker [oh, and non-negotiable].
As a visitor here, you're welcome to ask questions, give feedback (good or 'bad'... gulp) or share some of your experiences with me. I’d be over the moon! Keeping my pledge of honesty, I must confess that I’m pretty useless with social media correspondence [if that’s what you call it]… It's a goal of mine to improve in this area.
Oh, which reminds me... You can also get in touch through my FB page: Sober Sammy.
I’m Sammy, and I’m an addict in early recovery.
