Sober For: 5 Years & 279 Days
What it was like?
I was emotionally, physically and spiritually broken. I was lost and was deathly afraid of where my addiction was taking me. It was only a matter of time before I would lose everything.
I could no longer be the person I had become. I could not stand to look in the mirror and could no longer deal with the shame and guilt. I got on my knees and desperately asked God for help. He spoke to me and led me to Alcoholics Anonymous. He gave me the courage to walk in the doors and reach out for help. I was welcomed with open arms. It was then that I realized I no longer needed to deal with my addiction alone.
What it is like now?
I am forever grateful for where I am today. I am now comfortable in my own skin and have so many wonderful people in recovery that support me. My sobriety I consider a gift from God and i protect it one day at a time. My recovery is a journey not a destination. I pray for continual growth emotionally, physically and spiritually. I am truly blessed and wish to reach out and carry the message forward to those that still suffer
