Sobriety Date: April 9, 2007
I just celebrated 2 years Nicotine and Tobacco free on January 16, 2013
While sobriety remains the most important aspect of my life “we are not a glum lot “
In May 2011, I quit my job, sold my car and said farewell to a host of friends and family and took a flight from Los Angeles, California to Paris, France.
I am officially here to learn French, but that is but a side benefit to sharing a new life experience my significant other, who happens to be French!
RECOVERY IS INTERNATIONAL. The “City of Lights” has a huge English Speaking Recovery Community that has embraced and welcomed me.
THANK YOU ….. PASADENA RECOVERY CENTER and A POWER GREATER THAN MYSELF THAT BLESSED THE BROKEN ROAD THE LED ME STRAIGHT TO YOU

In his 2005 New York Times bestselling memoir, Symptoms of Withdrawal, Christopher Kennedy Lawford chronicled his deep descent into near-fatal drug and alcohol addiction, and his subsequent hard-won journey back to sobriety, which he has maintained for the past 24 years with the hopes of making a difference. The overwhelming response received to his book impressed upon Lawford the number of people struggling to find their own way back from addiction and the need to share their stories, which led to the development of Moment of Clarity: Voices From the Front Lines of Addiction and Recovery.
