About Nicola

“Writing has always been a passion of mine. Even as a child I would scribble away for hours on end, creating stories or lyrics for songs. Writing has become particularly relevant in my life since I sought recovery from addiction and mental health issues.  It is now my full-time occupation and a dream come true.  I am Editor-In-Chief at http://www.iloverecovery.com, a part of http://www.intherooms.com, the worlds biggest social networking site for recovering people and their families. I’ve written extensively for http://www.afterpartychat.com, and had articles published in In Recovery Magazine, Recovery Today Magazine, Psychology Today, Reach Out Recovery and many more. 

23RD January 2010 I began my journey of recovery from addiction.  This blog describes in brutal honesty my thoughts feelings and reality as a recovering addict. I’d love to hear from you so please don’t be shy! Contact me through the form below.

  1. Wow! I just read Hearts and Scars…your part at the end really really spoke to me. I’m currently in a very dark place. In active addiction. I’m almost 30 with two kids. I’ve been depressed since I was little honestly…i feel as though I’ll never snap out of this..i think I’m at rock bottom…

    1. Thanks so much Amy. All I can say is that it is possible to get well and feel well. I thought I’d never get out of that horrible cage either, but I did. Self-care needs to be your priority. Start with the little things. I wish you the best.

  2. Hi Nicola, Thanks again for finding me. Congrats on your four plus years of sober and clean time — that’s awesome! Look forward to sharing with you.
    xo, Christy

  3. I TOO found my passion in writing! I used to write often when I was a teen. It helped me through some very dark days. Thanks for sharing a bit about yourself! I’m now a follower! God Bless, Author, Catherine Lyon 🙂 🙂
