I’m going to take a breather for a few weeks from posting on Recovery Stories so I can take a break and then focus on some Sharing Culture work. Remember, there’s plenty of content on the website for you to look at, including over 700 blogs and plenty of Recovery Stories, articles, etc.
I thought I’d leave you with one of my favourite blogs, A journey toward recovery: From the inside out by Dale Walsh.
