Sober For: 8 Years & 356 Days
What it was like?
I started drinking and using at a very young age. It was a way of life, drinking everyday to forget about life's stresses and the bad days. Drink to forget, use to get through the day. Everyone else did it I just used more, wanted more, and never felt fulfilled.
Before I knew it I was living a life I hated, I lost myself and didn't know who I was. I only knew using, drinking, partying. I knew there was more to life then the endless cycle of getting fucked up, to feeling terrible and getting fucked up to feel better.
What it is like now?
I've finally found out who I am a strong independent woman that loves to travel, meet new people and experience a life that I remember. As I've hit life's road blocks I use my sobriety to hold me up and move me forward. No regrets in life only lessons.
