“I am not perfect, or am I a professional writer. I share my recovery words, thoughts, and experiences so others may have HOPE that they to can recover from any addiction.”

In honor of my blogging anniversary here on WordPress, my current E-book is now promo priced at just $1.99 on Amazon for the whole summer! A special for those who have not had a chance to read my book titled, Addicted To Dimes, (Confessions of a Liar and a Cheat).
I truly can not believe that it has been 2 years already that I came to WordPress. I have blogged a lot longer than 2 years, as I started a blog with another hosting site, but I was displeased with the lack of sharing tools to share my blog posts. So I came to check out WordPress, and I got hooked! It is the best place to have a free blog to connect with all my readers and recovery friends on a more personal level. I have enjoyed my time here on WP, and I want all my friends and fabulous recovery followers to my blog to know that I really appreciate you all very much!
Having all of you visit here is a tremendous support to me in recovery. I enjoy all the humor, banter, and all your comments and sharing of your thoughts on the different, and at times, difficult subject matter and topics I blog about here. It is like sharing a piece of your heart. And as many of you know, I do this to hopefully raise awareness and put a spotlight on issues that not only has touched my life, but the lives of many who come here.
It is the only way I know to share the truth about some ugly topics that need to be shared and talked about.
Of course that is only my opinion, and all I share here is just my own thoughts and opinions, not anyone else’s.
Trying to share the dangers of addicted gambling is very important to me. It is a way to let others know that it does happen, and it is a real addiction. So I try to inform and educate visitors and also through my book, which is my own story of what gambling addiction and alcohol abuse took from. And not just the money.

So in closing, I would like to say “Thank You” to all who have come to visit, to learn, and for accepting me for who I am, not as a recovering addict. You all have shown me that there are still people in this world who care for others by what is in their heart, not by their past . . . .
God Bless Friends!
