Submit Your Story

Our stories connect us. A tremendous part of what has kept me going in recovery, and what helped to inspire it in the first place, had to do with the stories of other women. Women who I found were just like me. Suddenly, I didn't feel so alone on this journey and that forever changed my life. If you are a woman in recovery, considering recovery, or touched by someone battling with addiction or recovery, I'd love to include you on the Our Stories page, confidentially, of course. Please fill out the submission form below.

A few things to note:

  • Recovery does not just mean alcohol or drugs are involved. Many of us are recovering from any number of things, perfectionism, anxiety, codependency, workaholism, eating disorders, etc... Whatever you've been battling, we hope you will consider sharing this truth with others.
     
  • Your story can include your history with addiction, your journey in recovery, or something else you feel may help a fellow sister with her journey. In other words, write what you feel. Write from your heart and write what you want to share. Long or short, every story speaks to someone. I also cannot stress enough that it does not have to be perfect, just write it out and send it as is. I believe you'll be glad you did.
     
  • Your identity will be kept confidential.  The only thing I need is your email address and story. You can create a new email account for this purpose, if that is preferrable. My reason for needing your email is to ensure your permission to post. Upon receipt of your submission, I will reply directly to confirm a few particulars along with the date the post will be placed on the site.
     

If you have any other questions, you can contact me here. I look forward to hearing from you!
