What it was like?
I'd find myself going out every night. I liked to be social,gamble and not be at home. I had ran into a bump in the road because of my drinking and was on the verge of self destruct. I'd use drinking as an outlet of facing my real problems and they all caught up to me at once.
I had gotten caught for my 3rd DUI. 2 in the span of 5 months. I got caught speeding in a new car I just bought(then lost,with everything else) one thing led to another and I was arrested. Right then I hit rock bottom and decided change was needed or I'm going to kill somebody or myself. I checked myself into a 30 day rehab a week later and never looked back.
What it is like now?
I've never been better, especially health wise. I do all the activities I used to do and don't ever think about drinking or anything associated with it. I'm a better spirited person. I've paid all my dues,can drive again in January of 2020 and I'm looking forward to rewriting this chapter I started 4 years ago before I lost everything.
