What’s it all About?

It’s all about Recovery for me.

Recovery from Alcoholism.

Recovery from the years I spent housebound then in a wheelchair.

Recovery from fear. From being a person who only knew how to exist- to one who really learned how to live.

I believe that Recovery is always possible. That every second of everyday contains limitless potential for Recovery. That a New Life is there for all of us-and is easily achievable.

That it does no have to be about struggle or fear or effort.

When I realised that I used exactly the same tools to get out of my wheelchair as I did to get sober, I knew that all recovery was essentially the same. And that if someone like me could achieve sobriety and a full physical recovery- then anyone could.

I set this website up as a resource for anyone looking to start their own Life After. Now people from all over the world use it to get from where they are, (whether that place is one of addiction or physical ill-health) to where they want to be (happy, independent, thriving and really living).

The more people I meet on this journey, the more I believe it is possible for all of us.

So stick around, come say hi, let me know how I can help. Everyday someone starts their own New Life After;

Why shouldn’t today be the start of yours?

  1. Dear Carrie

    I think your article on pretty girl alcoholics is superb, one of the most honest and true pieces of journalism I’ve seen in ages. It also raises lots of issues about how superficial we are and how superficial many of our relationships are.

    I work for a rehab clinic in Scotland (you should come and visit us: check us out on castlecraig.co.uk!) and I had heard that people in recovery shouldn’t have a relationship for at least a year. Until this moment I never really understood why. Thanks for explaining it.
