My Sober Truth (VB)

Hi, my name is Jill and I am an Alcoholic.

It’s a really hard sentence to type, speak or even admit in your own head. But it is a statement that I have identified with for over ten years. Over time it gets a little easier to say, yet there is always a lump in my throat when the words leave my lips. I prefer to say “I’m Jill & I’m in Recovery”, I really like the way that sounds. But honestly, they both mean the same. I will always be an alcoholic until the day that I die and by the grace of God I hope that I will still be in recovery when I take my last breath. read more

Ongoing Culture Shift (Ottawa)

As we continue to share with you changes and shifts that have and are taking place, we thought it would be good to revisit this culture shift:

We have had some further conversations with individuals in the community who have been able to express their feelings around the hugging culture at November Project. We want to encourage people at November Project to step outside your comfort zone, and create a safe place to do this, and will continue to strive for this. However, we are not the ones to determine your comfort zone. Everyone’s comfort zone is different and if you are consistent, you will have the choice when you want to take those steps. It’s a good reminder for everyone to show up, to be listening and respecting those boundaries.  read more
