Sober Since: 03 / 19 / 2016
Sober For: 4 Years & 251 Days
What it was like?
When I started drinking it was always to cover up my feelings of pain or fear. I drank or used over everything, I grew up going to meetings with my dad. I thought self knowledge of what an alcoholic looked like and their personalities would keep me from becoming one. But I believe I was born one.
It got to a point where suicide or sobriety were my only options. My HP was looking out for me, it gave me a little bit of hope for sobriety and a new life.
What it is like now?
Now I'm still cleaning up the wreckage of my past but I have so many sober friends that support me and help me stay sober. I have 2 friends from my drinking career that support me 100%. I'm grateful to have them in my life. Every day I stay connected with my HP. I have wonderful days, I started to care for others. I want to encourage others to stay sober too, I live a life I never dreamed of, it's far better than my dreams.
