What it was like?
I felt like I wanted to die but didn't want to die. People were always telling me what to do because I had no self control over my life. I knew what I wanted to achieve but never could get there.
I was arrested on a felony dui. I was in jail for 5 months and knew things needed to change. I lost everything. My son didn't know where I was. I was just taken from him in the middle of the night. I knew I never wanted him to go through that again.
What it is like now?
I have gotten thing back in my life. I have a vailid drivers license, I own my own home, I am going to college and finally getting my degree in the fall 2017. I am finally living my own life and getting my wants and needs. I have a own personal freedom and its due to staying sober!
