I do talks in schools, workplaces, and other organizations about addiction, codependency and recovery. The most rewarding thing about that is seeing in the eyes of the people who get what I’m talking about. Seeing the relief in their eyes that there is someone like me who is able to talk about it in a relaxed and inspiring way. I focus on the flipside of addiction and codependency which is that there is a solution and that there is
recovery. I don’t try to scare people. Most people already know how dangerous drugs can be. I talk about how recovery is possible and if you are a kid in a classroom worrying that her mother is drinking too much, that kid can get a lot of hope from my words.
