Whittni says, “Change is difficult and takes time! Don’t ever doubt the amount of progress being made each day in recovery. Each second, minute, hour continues to remind yourself that you are doing the best you can and continue to get up and fight. Do the one thing you fear and the death of fear is certain!”
