Amy McCalister – about this blog
This blog is about addiction. Some entries are about my journey through addiction and recovery. Some are based on information for different treatments for addiction. Some entries are like journal entries. This is a place where I vent, share and hopefully help other addicts find information on where to go for help.I hope this site can help at least one addict, maybe more, identify with my story and my path to recovery. I have found a new way to live, I love my new life, the ups the downs and the in between. I write out my gratitude list everyday and give thanks for the life I’ve been given.
I will also be writing about the book I am publishing soon. I will be posting so excerpts from the book, I would love your feedback! I am hoping to publish it by the end of March as an E-Book. I am also working on a collection of short stories. My first novel is ready for publishing but I am still not sure about the ending, I am thinking about leaving a twist for a sequel. I also am writing my life story. I have many pages from the past few years and I’m organizing them, so far I have 50 pages. It is a lot of work since some of it is very chaotic since it was written in early recovery.
I would appreciate feedback, especially constructive criticism. I would like to know what I can improve, I am always interested in other’s opinions and interpretations.
