Sober For: 9 Years & 257 Days
What it was like?
It was never good. Always chasing the right drunk. I thought I’d get it right sometime. Never did. Almost killed myself trying to chase that “right drunk”. Couldn’t function.
Reality slapped me in the face and it all caught up to me when my kids were taken from me temporarily.
What it is like now?
Amazing. I don’t romanticize how it was. I am very straightforward about how bad it got. And I am so grateful for each sober day!
