Well, Cathy has been busy again this year, and she just posted her new list of 75 Amazing Addiction Recovery Blogs 2015 over on her CathyTaughinbaugh.com website. I am incredibly honored to be on this year's list (at number 58), in the company of so many terrific blogs, several of which are written by people I consider my friends.
In addition, the Heroes in Recovery blog--which I have been contributing to for the past year--checked in at number 28 on the list. That, too, is quite an honor.
As Cathy states on her blog, "The purpose of this list is to have an easy way for you to check out the information that so many bloggers have created to be another voice spreading the word about recovery and resources."
Every single one of the 75 blogs on Cathy's list are important, as is any blog about addiction and recovery...even if it's not on the list. These blogs are written by people who are passionate about recovery and helping others. People who speak from the heart, whose goal is to share information and experiences that may help or comfort others who are struggling. And to take the stigma associated with addiction back behind the wood shed and kick its ass.
Please go to Cathy Taughinbaugh's website--which is full of amazing resources and tools--and check out the blogs on the list. If you are going through a difficult time with addiction--either your own or a loved one's--you may find solace in something someone else has written. If nothing else, you will surely discover that you are not alone.
