Honesty, Recovery, and my 10 in 20 day detox

This post is very hard for me to write. Until recently I believed my family were the only ones who read these posts, so I didn't feel a sense of responsibility to my readers. But words matter, written, typed, texted, or spoken, words can raise us up, or break us down, they can heal, or …
