Sober For: 2 Years & 220 Days
What it was like?
I was a functioning alcoholic...couldn’t wait to get off work to stop at the liquor store to grab my magnum of wine and couple coolers.
I was with a partner just like me. He got angry and decided to kick my son and I out of the house. Was living in a travel trailer on a friends driveway. Later things got physical between us cuz we decided to drink together again. I was in a really bad place. About a week after that I decided to get behind the wheel of my car and drive myself home from a friends place. Ended up driving down an embankment and crashed my car and got an impaired. That was then my low point and I thanked god that I didn’t hurt anyone with my poor choice. A couple days later I went to detox. Had a slip after that and asked myself what the hell are you doing?
What it is like now?
I’ve been sober for almost 9 months and had treatment. I’ve learned I suffer from anxiety and didn’t know my self worth. I am now taking care of me and my health and never been happier.
