Sober For: 2 Years & 75 Days
What it was like?
After years of struggling with depression and anxiety, I started turning to alcohol to make myself feel "better". Little did I know I was actually making things much worse for myself. I quickly became addicted and depended on alcohol to get me through everything. I could barely look at myself in the mirror.
I knew it was bad when I got in trouble with the law and lost my father due to alcohol, and still didn't want to stop drinking. It finally took an attempt at ending my own life (while drunk) to make me see there was a big problem.
What it is like now?
Freedom is the best way I can describe my sobriety. I am 500 days sober today and I don't ever want to go back. My life is calm, in the most exciting way possible. There is an ease to my life now that I would never have had, had I kept drinking. This is the life for me.
