What it was like?

At first I thought it was fun, then it was fun with consequences, and then it just became a downward dark spiral of just consequences.

What happened?

Mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally dying. Break ups, bad decisions, heartaches, pain, falling, blackouts, depression, DUI, sadness, madness, sickness, and suffering. Then I thought I was going to physically pass out and die. In desperation, I was terrified, and I prayed to God, "If you let me live, I will quit drinking." I was miraculously saved, lived, relieved of my addiction. I surrendered. It was no longer fun or cute anymore. This was serious. I was dying..

What it is like now?

I'M FREE!! I feel amazing! I'm living a purposeful life and fulfilling my dreams. I have a second chance at a life without depending on alcohol.
