My name is Jami DeLoe and I am a recovering alcoholic. I have found that the only way I can stay sober is by the grace of God, so I thought that I would try my hand blogging about some of my thoughts, experiences and challenges in sobriety.
A little bit about me: I am 41 years old, married to my best friend (he’s also in recovery) and I live in Tucson, Arizona. Like many alcoholics and addicts I have a dual diagnosis. I suffer from chronic depression and post traumatic stress disorder in addition to my alcoholism. Over the last couple of years, I have been to treatment for addiction twice, spent time in the psych ward, and sufferred lots of negative consequences due to my drinking. There isn’t much that people could share with me about themselves that would shock me anymore. There’s no doubt that I have done or said or thought the same thing myself.
What I have learned is that recovery, for me, only works when I recognize and accept God’s grace. I know that I can’t do it alone, I tried that for many years unsuccessfully. But thankfully, with God’s help, I am able to clean up the wreckage of my past and live a new life.
Thank you for looking at my blog. I hope that something I have written will make a difference…maybe bring a little bit of grace to your life.
I would love to hear from you!
