Name: Gabby

Age: 34

Sober Since: 10 / 24 / 2015

Sober For: 8 Years & 45 Days

What it was like?

Quitting drinking was something I always said hungover because I knew I overdid it. But this time I meant it.

What happened?

I woke up the day after celebrating my birthday to what would be the last time of blacking out and pretending like it was normal to do that.

What it is like now?

Today I’m 5 years sober and not only is my memory incredible but I value being present in my life so much more. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without meditation, writing and the power of prayer.
