“I got sober when I was 33, and being an alcoholic is the best thing that ever happened to me. In my journey of recovery, I learned that I could be dedicated to something (other than drinking), and I learned that I was strong. I got to rebuild my life, go to college, and reclaim my self-worth and confidence. The truth is, this is what I was put on this earth for: to help others navigate this awful illness and help create a plan to nurture recovery through the long and winding road of addiction. Some people are uncomfortable talking about addiction and some are embarrassed to be addicted. For me, through my addiction, I found my purpose. And I couldn’t be more grateful to say, Hi everybody, I’m Angela. I’m an alcoholic’.”
