I would love to get some pen pals with recovering addicts. I love writing letters and would love to talk to new people in recovery. I currently have three months clean, I'm a junior in college and don't know any addicts here. I don't mind either emailing or snail mail. but email me first and I will respond with my address.

Sam I think it is wonderful you are reaching out. My son (20) and is recovering with 70 days clean. He is doing well but the one thing he struggles with is loneliness. I feel so bad for him cause he pretty much only has his dad and I. A couple good friends but they have lives and cant always be around. He goes to his meetings daily, which help him a lot, but he needs people his own age that understand. If you don't mind I would like to show him your post. Maybe he would be interested in talking. He is looking forward to starting college and to talk with someone that is recovering and still going to school I think would be a inspiration. Let me know if you are ok with corresponding with a male.

Hi I’m Brittany. In 2016 I started using meth to numb the pain , guilt, and shame. I was in and out of jail a dozen times until my dad begged the judge to court order me to inpatient rehab. In those 90 days my life dramatically changed. God worked a miracle on me and is still to this day. Feb 20, 2020 I will have finally made it to my one year meth free. I’d like to help set someone free if I can or just be a positive word to someone’s negative. I know what it’s like to want to quit and fail and relapse and hurt everyone who loves you. If anyone needs a pen pal that’s still in their addiction or in recovery. I’m here. Anytime.
