Greetings, my name is Tim. Iím a person living in long-term recovery from addiction. For me that means I havenít had to use alcohol or any other drugs for the past 23 years. ďRecovery... is habit-forming.Ē © 2018 - Ryan Hampton. Iíve achieved most of my recovery by working 12-step programs. I switched to SMART recovery in 2018 because the scientific approach appeals to me. Today I continue to struggle with a severely dysfunctional family & chronic loneliness.
