Sober For: 6 Years & 352 Days
What it was like?
I was lost hurting and turned to drinking to fill the void. Over six years I turned from drinking after work with friends to drinking in the morning before work, on lunch breaks and into all hours of the night. I couldn't imagine a life without a cocktail in my hand, or very close by.
I woke up one morning so sick I thought I would die. I could barely stand, my mother found me crumpled in a ball on the floor and called an ambulance, I spent the next few days looking for help and getting connected with AA group.
What it is like now?
Life is beautiful. I no longer run to a neon sign for my joy and happiness.
