Alcoholism is a sneaky illness that doesn’t depend on your mileage as Reeta found out.

Alcoholism snuck up on Reeta Kroner after she moved abroad to study. Soon her life was on a downward spiral and her illness was taking a toll on her relationships. To tame the beast she had to broke herself. This is her journey to sobriety.

About the speaker

Addiction had taken everything from me: my family, my relationship, my studies, home, human value and my morals.

Reeta Kroner is a recovering alcoholic and drug addict. She has been clean and sober for 2,5 years. Reeta will tell us how you can rebuild your self-esteem and yourself even after you have been BROKEN. And after you have BROKEN against all your own values and promises.

She was wondering how she could ever look anybody in the eye after the way she had treated herself and everybody around her. Asking for help took both courage and humbleness. But she realized that being honest and facing all the painful things she had done was the only way to start building a new life.

-This has given me a unique chance to get to know myself. I’m no longer scared of life.

This month’s CreativeMornings/Helsinki speech will be a powerful one.
