update from jeepgirl

Hi everyone,
I am doing very well these days. I have a new job, and have become a consistent attender of Naranon meetings. I am at a meeting 1 to 3 nights per week, and it has helped very much.
My daughter is sober today (after 5 years of heroin addiction). She has just detoxed from 7 months on methadone, and is very motivated, has a great sponsor, and goes to meetings every day.
Its as if I have a young teenager in my home again. She doesn't know what she wants, where she wants to go, so she's taking it slow, and she is rediscovering friendship, family, and fellowship. Eventually, she would like to help young girls like herself.
My prayers are for all of us. I'll stop by to see you again.

Happy to here life is good for both you and your daughter.
Addiction kills sometimes. But like your daughter, often there is recovery.
Reasons to keep faith and hope alive.
You deserve all this happiness.

It's been a long journey but I am so happy that it has taken you and your daughter to a better path. Meetings are what helped me find my balance, discover who I was and taught me how to live well, no matter what was happening all around me.

Big huge hugs for you and your girl, it sounds like life's blessings are smiling on each of you.

So good to see you and hear that things are going well.

I, like you, love the help that my meetings give me. If it's up to me, I'll never stop going to them.

Big hugs to you and your daughter. Tell her Hangin' In said she's so proud of her. And you...well, you are an inspiration.
