If you had asked me why I was the way that I was, why I cheated, stole, lied and took advantage of people, I would have told you that I had no choice but to behave that way. I had to look out for myself -- no one else was going to.
Articling student. Recovered drug addict and alcoholic active in Cocaine Anonymous.
My name is Kerri. I'm a student in Toronto but more importantly, I'm a recovered drug addict and alcoholic very active in Cocaine Anonymous -- a 12-step fellowship promising freedom from all mind-altering substances, not just alcohol. I flirted with freelance writing ten years ago, to some success but spent most of my 20s in active addiction. I've since recovered and spend most of my free time helping addicts and alcoholics to the solution so freely given to me.
