Out of the Woods begins

Out of the Woods...When I was newly sober I heard people say, "it takes three to five years to get out of the woods". Then, after I had that many years I realized that it takes just that long to get into the woods and to be able to see what's around you, to see the trees and to be able to identify the flora and fauna. Then, after crossing the ten-year mark, I began to feel that in fact sobriety and recovery really do change and you can indeed come out of the woods.

So welcome! Out-of-the-Woods is a place to read and think about longterm sobriety and recovery, especially for women. Every week you can join me here for new ideas and perspectives on sobriety, growth, change, challenges and the miracle of recovery.

I'll be back with more next week.

Welcome to Out of the Woods.
