Top Recovery Blog List from Addiction Unscripted

 

I am deeply honoured that UnPickled has been included in this list of addiction unscripted badgetop blogs from Addiction Unscripted and encourage you to check out the Top 25 Recovery Blogs in 2016 list, as well as the rest of site which is chock-full of recovery resources and articles.

Addiction Unscripted also invites reader
s to submit stories and articles, and I hope you’ll consider doing that. If you’ve never written down your own story before, you really should! It is a powerful exercise, and sharing our stories is a healing gift to both writer and reader.

Sifting through the piles of solicitation emails I get every day is becoming a big job. A lot of people make a lot of money in the *business* of recovery, and if they are doing good work and saving lives then I think they deserve every penny. But it gives me an uneasy feeling to see the eagerness that exists for access to readers of recovery blogs who are often in a vulnerable position. If you’re struggling and suffering and looking for help, I want to protect you and offer you a safe place to explore. I love sharing new resources, websites, other blogs, and cool stuff that’s useful and reputable.

Here are a few things I said a firm “no” to recently who asked me to promote their stuff: a pocket breathalizer company, an online hypnotist, and an online pill warehouse. They want your money, and they don’t care if you benefit or not.

Still, I hope everyone buys a pair of UnPickled underwear and a tank top because they help support the cost of this blog, but please know that my goal at all times is to just be a good steward of this space.

There is SO MUCH GREAT CONTENT out there and information is POWER in recovery, so dig in! The list of blogs above is a great place to start, as are all of my bloggy friends on the side of my webpage on www.unpickledblog.com (view the desktop version if you can’t see them on your mobile device).

Happy reading, and thanks again to Addiction Unscripted for noticing the good things happening here on UnPickled!

About UnPickled

I am learning to walk without the crutch of alcohol. As I begin I am 1 day sober. Gulp. I drank in private and hope to quit just as privately. The purpose of this blog is to help make me accountable - just by following you will give me enormous support and encouragement.

  1. I listen to the Bubble Hour while I travel to and from work. Hearing you today, speaking about your struggle with excoriation as well as alcohol addiction hit home as I also deal with both issues. Your candor is touching! You press on even though it is so painful to reveal these very personal struggles! Bless you for that Jean! How surprised I was to find out that you were the lady with the cool voice, singing the theme song, which is really good and inspiring! I doubt I’m the only guy who listens to the show and reads the blog, but even if I were, would continue to listen and read. Thank you for all you do! ☺
