Sober For: 9 Years & 280 Days
What it was like?
I was miserable, unemployable and broken. I had lost everything and lived in my moms basement. I was a liar and a cheat and a thief. I would do anything just to drink.
I'd love to say that I got sober by choice. My body finally had enough and I started throwing up and didn't stop until 5 days later. During those 5 days, I saw myself for who inreally was and what I had become. I was disgusted. I knew I had to stop. I now know that it was not my body telling me it was time to quit, but my HP.
What it is like now?
Today, I have a life beyond my wildest dreams. I have an amazing sponsor who checks me when I need it but does everything with love. I am gainfully employed with a license and a car. (After 3 DUI's, that's a huge deal to me.) I work hard for my sobriety because I have to. intry to live as honest of a life as I can.
