Tell us about your (or your loved one's) recovery journey. What has been the most rewarding part?

I've been an iv user of meth,heroin and fetnyal since I was 19 years old. I have 2 beautiful daughters,I was clean almost 2 years ago for 10 months till my brother passed away on October 29th 2018 from a car wreck coming back from a party the night before,and I used that as a excuse for my relapse. I ended up relapsing on fetnyal and od once and had to be narcaned. I finally got sober again this easter Sunday of 2020 on the 12th of april. The last thing my brother said to his dad before he passed was how happy and proud he was of me for trying to get clean and do the right thing. Now I can say I'm finally clean again and this time I truly want it and doing whatever it takes. I currently have a sponsor and doing the 12 steps finally. And was able to get my families trust back and move back in with them and I couldn't be happier and haven't been this happy in a long time. Thanks to NA I finally have a life worth living and able to make my brother proud again. I love you so much lil brother E-WILL. If I can do it I have faith anyone can. I pray for all the suffering addicts that want a way out. Keep yalls head up and keep doing the right thing and recovery is absolutely worth it. God bless and love everyone!!
