This is me now, after quitting those 3 addictions I had.


Background Information

I grew up in Farmington, Michigan and was a very popular little girl.  I almost got straight A's and was well-liked by all of my teachers.

When my father and mother told me we would be moving to California I was devastated.  I even had to leave my precious dog Shadow behind which was the worst aspect about moving for me.  I didn't like it here in California and only made 1 friend in junior high school.  My best friend I guess you could say was food.  I gained 90 pounds in 4 years.

I also started drinking alcohol at the age of 19 and drank heavily for 12 years.  I smoked cigarettes for 28 years and have quit for 8 years now.  I wrote a book which was just published this September titled "I Quit!" telling my story of having these 3 addictions, then of quitting all of them.  I live a life of freedom from addictions now and I wouldn't go back to those addictions for anything.  I don't want them either which is where the freedom comes in.

I know how futile it seems when you're addicted---how you think you will never be able to quit.  I share my story so people can see that yes, it IS possible to quit....and it may not be as difficult to do as you thought.

Birth Place
Detroit, MI USA
Additional Information

I recently went to the Book Expo in Los Angeles and signed up for the book signing. It was great having so many people come up to me saying they were addicted, or someone in their family was addicted and they were so appreciative to be able to get my book.
