Sober Since: 12 / 01 / 1989
Sober For: 32 Years & 179 Days
What it was like?
I was a blackout drinker and cocaine addict and I couldn’t stop. I was full of shame and I wanted to die.
I attempted suicide and I ended up in treatment for three months. I was told in treatment to get outside help for my sexual abuse trauma and I’m very grateful that I did. I don’t think I would’ve stayed sober without doing the painful work. I’ve had continuous sobriety since I picked up my White chip
What it is like now?
My life is beyond anything I could’ve imagined it to be. It’s been a lot of painful work but so worth it. I’m beyond grateful for the 12 steps of AA, sponsorship, sexual abuse therapy and not giving up one day at a time.
