Seawife


Hello, everyone. I am new to this site. I haven't been on a recovery site in a long time. I have been in recovery for about twelve years. I drank beer and wine. I also did drugs all through my forties. I feel that I wasted some of the best years of my life. I had a loser boyfriend that didn't help. I am taking care of my sister, as she has esophageal cancer, which has spread to her liver.
