Sober Since: 10 / 10 / 2014
Sober For: 7 Years & 227 Days
What it was like?
Dark. Scary. Lonesome. Death was looming. King Alcohol was destroying me from the inside out. I was dying!
I was afraid to die. I just couldn't stay stopped. I was powerless over alcohol and my life was absolutely unmanageable. I found A.A to be what everyone else had promised. I have God standing next to me in all I do. I wouldn't have it any other way.
What it is like now?
Beautiful. Blessed. Grateful! Sobriety truly is a life beyond my wildest dreams. No, not everyday is a great day, some days totally suck. But when I look at the life I have today compared to what it was just 2 years ago before I hit my real bottom, I wouldn't change a thing. I am so grateful for this thing called life.
