Things to think about....The journey to recovery is a life long process. Use the same energy for progress as you did when you got in trouble. I won't lie to you. It isn't easy...but your worth it. Your loved ones will be proud of you.. Most importantly, you will be proud of yourself. Lastly, if you have kids. They will look at you as a mother or father instead of a thief or addict.
Get a fresh start.... as a non-violent ex-offender get your record sealed.
Do some volunteer work. It will count toward getting your record sealed
Attend peer groups or substance abuse groups, it counts toward getting your record sealed.
Get Educated.. Get a Technical Skill or go to College, it leads to financial freedom.
Be around people who are trying get ahead in life. That's not being a square!
