What it was like?
What started out as partying with friends, quickly progressed to around the clock drinking alone in my room, afraid of my own shadow.
I lost count of rehabs, hospital stays, geographical changes, and near death experiences from withdrawals. I came to in a hospital bed and had lost custody of my daughter, I begged for help! For the first time in my life, I wanted to live more than I wanted to die. I was no longer alone!
What it is like now?
A life beyond my wildest dreams is not just a cliche, I loved my life..the good times and the bad! I have a beautiful family who never gave up on me, a strong network in my fellowship, and I like the person I am today. No Matter what happens, I don't have to drink over it.
