Day 15:

Today I am thnakful for prison <- weird I know.

I was thinking last night where I would be if I had not been put into prison. I would be dead, or lost, or have no family.

So for that I am turly thankful that I had to go though prison so that I could be where I am today.

I have grown and become more of myself then I have ever been. It would not have been possible without prison.


  1. Hey. I have been reading your blog for a few months now. I even went back and read the archives from day 1. I wanted to let you know that you really are an inspiration to me. I read this and figure - If she can do it, so can I. So, I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your daily posts. Most of the blogs I read are from parents or some one who is related to an addict and not the addict him or her self. So it's really helpful to me to read a blog that is from an addict's point of view. I read in one of your archived posts that you would accept text messages from people who may need to talk to you. Are you still willing to do that? Because, some days I could just use a little help. Anyhow, just wanted to tell you that today I am thankful for you.

  2. Thank you so very much...you are an inspiration to me as well...all that are coming into recovery are. Yes I am still willing to do that. Send me and e-mail at cutiekellismom@hotmail.com and I will send you my phone number. Good luck in all you do and I know that you can do this!

  3. Thanks so much! I will shoot you an email when I get home from work. I gotta stop goofin' off and actually do some work at some point. LOL. And truly, sincerely, and honestly, thanks for sharing your story and for being there. You have helped me more than you will ever know.

  4. She really is a great friend and I've been blessed to have her in my recovery. I personally had to be around others who had struggled with addiction like I had, and learn from them. But what really helped open me up to admitting my own problem, was seeing the hope in others who had been where I had been in life, and found a way to change. Congratulations on deciding you want to change. It can be done, trust me I'm living proof today. Brandi is an amazing friend and I'm sure she'd agree with me in thanking you for sharing your story and struggles in life bc I know I need to be reminded where I was, so that I never have to go back.
