We told you last week that Renee Graziano is currently finishing out a rehab program in Miami, FL. Renee’s never been quiet about her sobriety struggle, but this time she is determined to make it stick!
“Staying in recovery was important when my son told me I was going to have a grandson. That’s when I decided I needed to do what I had to do and get my c**p together,” Renee recently confessed.
Renee insists this time feels different, and come March she’ll be returning to Staten Island; a new, improved version of herself! “I didn’t get it the first, second or third time,” she recalled. Adding, “My dad was in prison for 13 or 14 years. Even if my ex cooperated with me getting sober, the odds of it working before were very slim.”
Shockingly, Renee had lost hope not only in her health, but also in her happiness.
“You don’t even want to feel happiness. I didn’t want to feel anything at all. I’ve been through a lot, and those experiences made it extremely hard for me to trust anyone,” she admitted.
Explaining, “I was at the bottom, well actually below bottom and that’s something I have to say I’m working on and that’s why I need to work on it longer this time. It’s not gonna happen in 28 days and it might not happen for six months.”
“It’s been an amazing 90 days at Transitions Recovery Program in Miami. I’m working the steps. I got an NA sponsor. It’s the first time I’m doing the steps! I was going to go to a recovery house, but I’ve decided to stay in Transitions until the middle of March and leave to attend my grandson’s baby shower,” she wrapped.
Best of luck to Renee on her road to recovery, we wish you continued health and happiness! Congratulations to Renee, AJ, and Andrea on the exciting baby news!
