Sober Since: 05 / 22 / 2007
Sober For: 15 Years & 265 Days
What it was like?
I’m a War Veteran and the battles with depression and PTSD led to a lot of different addictions,with alcohol being the worse. I was “Switching seats on the Titanic” to try to cope with everything,but nothing worked
Thinks had gotten so bad That I tried to commit suicide by overdosing on alcohol,benzodiazepines and pain killers, but I realized I made a mistake and called a friend,I blacked out and woke in a hospital 2 days later,but that didn’t stop the drinking. I finally had an epiphany while sitting in a bar and told myself,”This is it,I’m done”
What it is like now?
Life is Great! I love dogs and I have had 2 that helped me get sober and 2 stay sober. The did pictured is Macy,she’s my Service Dog and has helped me through many health problems through the years. I give God all the Glory for My Sobriety and I’m thankful everyday for the second chance I have been given
