Tiffany Jenkins, the mother of three and blogger, joins The Doctors to share how she transformed her life from one of addiction to sharing her ups downs as a mom with people around the world.
She tells us that she started drinking at the age of 18, which then led to pot, cocaine and then injecting herself with painkillers. She says she stole things to support her addiction and was arrested for stealing a firearm. She was charged with 20 felonies and spent 120 days behind bars. She says she then went to rehab and a halfway house, where she found out that she was expecting.
Tiffanys explains that around a year ago she discovered that writing was a good outlet and she began to blog, where she speaks out about her addiction.
"When I honestly started sharing about the struggles that come along with being a mom and depression and anxiety, I was amazed at the amount of women that gravitated towards it and thanked me," she shares, explaining that when she then began writing about her addiction she received a great deal of positive feedback from readers.
To ensure that she keeps up with her sobriety while dealing with the pitfalls of motherhood, she tells The Doctors that she stays connected with her community and her sponsor. She also allows time for herself when she needs "self-care."
She explains that she loves being able to show people who might be struggling with drugs that a fulfilled and wonderful life is possible after addiction.
"It is possible to have an amazing life after addiction. This is not how your story has to end. Regardless of the judgment or hatred you receive, you have to reach out for help and you have to do what it takes to get your life back... and there's no such thing a lost cause," she says.
If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction please call the confidential and free National Helpline at 1-800-662-HELP or visit their website.
