I’ve amassed a great resume of the years since
joining the military in 1986. This mass was not due to service or goodwill by
any stretch, but rather so I could gain the recognition and respect from family
and friends (not strangers, mind you, at least not yet anyway…) Once I found
recovery from my own addiction to controlling behaviors and drugs (my DOC is
Pot, Maryjane, Cannabis) I would wipe my resume clean and just put on a
business card my phone number and…”Hello My name is Mark Gladden, I am a person in long term recovery, which means to me that I have not used acohol or mind
altering drugs since September 24, 2014…..(I wonder what the employer would say
to that! 😉 ) I look forward to meeting
your challenge Mary!
Cooper, struggled with an alcohol
and painkiller addiction prior to getting
sober at 29 in 2012. With
over a decade of sobriety under his belt, he says that he wouldn’t be where he
is today without his recovery.
