Recovery Story

First, I want to thank you for this wonderful site. I have no words for you how this site saved my life. B'chasdei hashem, I am sober since I started the 90 days, which is almost a year and a half ago. This is a great miracle, and I am very grateful to Hashem for this site and to Dov and to a few guys on GYE that were very helpful in the beginning of my journey.

However, after becoming sober I had terrible withdrawal symptoms. I went for consultation to Steven Friedman from Monsey. I followed his advice to start going to SA meetings. B"H, in my town there is a very strong heimisher Fellowship. I am in SA for the past 7 months. B"H, I am doing fine and at step 9 of the 12 steps. I have a good sponsor and made many wonderful friends that understand me, with whom I can share in a safe way.

My life had a big turnaround in the last year in a positive way, and thank you, Hashem, for this wonderful gift.
