Hey Friend! There’s good news and there’s bad news. Which do you want first? I’ll give you the bad news, because by now you already kinda know… This blog series is no longer available on this website. I’m sorry! I have always dreamed of writing and publishing a book, ever since my Dad bought me a typewriter on my 6th birthday. The good news is, It’s finally happening! My book is in review on the Amazon Kindle website, and within the next few days will be available for pre-order! I know you are probably still mad at me, but I hope that you understand that this a huge goal, that I am actually about to freakin’ accomplish, and I want you to be excited with meeee! I will post a link to the book here as soon as it becomes available, as well as share it on my facebook @ http://www.facebook.com/jugglingthejenkinsblog Thank you for being interested in my stuff, it really means more than you know. And thank you for being a part of my journey. You may not realize it, but it’s people like you that inspire me to get my lazy ass out of bed each day and create content. Me love you long time… Tiffany Jenkins

  1. I know this was a defining moment, but now that you have a few years of sobriety, a beautiful family, and great friends, i have to admit- its kinda hard not to want to giggle when i imagine the moment you realized it was a SURPRISE PARTY for YOU. ? Smooth Tiff! This would have been a great time to bust out with the WORM????

  2. I am celebrating 6 months clean from opiate addiction. My drug of choice was fentanyl. I was on the 100mcg patch and sometimes I would wear 2 at a time or I would chew on a little piece of one. When I didn’t have it I would settle for whatever I could get my hands on. Oxys, hydros, morphine, anything. I would sleep for days at a time and just forget that the world and the people that I love didn’t exist. My husband and 3 daughters suffered in the process but at the time I didn’t care. One day I woke up and looked in the mirror and didn’t recognize the person staring back at me. At that point I knew I needed help so I went to rehab. I was only there for a week but I am still active in the aftercare program and I am currently on Suboxone for the withdrawals and cravings. So far it’s working but I’ve heard it’s harder to get off of than the other pills I was taking. It’s like a bandaid I guess but I don’t want to be on it forever. I’m also scared of what will happen when I have to stop it. My daughter’s are now 22, 21, and 18 and this is the first time in their lives that they have seen their mother clean. We are learning together who I really am because I honestly don’t remember who I was before my addiction. It’s been a long hard road and I know it’s not going to get any easier. I’m extremely lucky to have a great support system in place. I am looking forward to living the rest of my life clean and having the relationship with my family that I have never had before.

  3. I am so happy I found these! I am not an addict and have never been, however, I am raising my great niece because her mom is an addict. She has been to rehab twice and jail 3x since baby girl was born not even two years ago! She has an older son that just graduated kindergarten, she lost custody of him when he was 2, I’ve had baby girl since she was a month old! My husband and I plan on adopting her eventually! Dad has never been in the picture he is an addict and on his way to prison! Your story is helping me understand a little bit better! I am a Social Worker but I work with the elderly! lol I absolutely love reading your stories!

    1. I thank God for those who are able to care for anothers child when the parent is incapable. What a wonderful heart you must have, she is lucky to have you guys. Thank you so much for reading and i will pray that your great niece finds her way to recovery ????

  4. Just found your blog today when a friend shared your “facebook mommy groups” video (I’m not a mom and I still died laughing).

    Had to comment to say thank you for sharing all the gory details of addiction so honestly! My brother is a recovering addict and alcoholic (15 months clean from heroin and 18+ months sober), and as much as I try to understand, as a “normie” (as he calls us, ha) it’s hard to truly and fully comprehend the pull of addiction. This makes it much clearer, and I can tell will be helpful not only for my relationship with my brother but my clients – I’m in school to become a therapist, and I am working with veterans, so many of whom are struggling with some kind of substance abuse/addiction.

    So thank you for your candor, and huge congratulations on maintaining recovery! Looking forward to reading more in this series.

  5. I just found my way to your blog via a share on fb, and I am so glad I did! I love your writing style and brutal honesty.

  6. Thank you for this. I just stumbled across your fb page and am now eagerly devouring your story blog posts. I’m in the beginnings of recovery from opiods. It’s been almost a month since I was arrested at my work, and lost my job and went to jail. It’s been so hard. So so hard. But your story and others comments give me hope that I can and will cone out of this better than ever. My question is, when do I get to stop feeling so damn guilty. When do I get to stop hating myself for wrecking everything???
