BW: How’d you stay sober for 5 years?
Jennifer: I met my husband Marcus. I went to meetings and I met him there. I had 9 months sober and he had 4 years clean. We built a home together. We had a recovery wedding. A beautiful wedding.
Marcus and I had a wonderful life. My kids were back in my life regularly.
But, I relapsed about 3 years ago and I hadn’t been able to get it back together. My husband died on me 2 months ago. He had a heart attack in our home. Two weeks later my brother killed himself. Since then, I’ve just been out there. I’m lost. I’m just lost right now… my life is drug addiction.
I just wish I could O.D. and I can’t. I just can’t.
