Sober Since: 12 / 14 / 2017
Sober For: 3 Years & 281 Days
What it was like?
My bottom was when I was fired for an alcohol related incident. It was humiliating and I was as depressed as I’d ever been. Before then I was nearly blacking out every night trying to escape who I was, with the substance that made me that way. Until then I never thought about taking my own life. I remember driving home over a mountain range and highly contemplating driving off. Then I thought about my children, and my wife and started praying. Out of nowhere a friend who I haven’t spoken to in over two years called me and talked with me the entire way home. Immediately drove to a meeting and never looked back.
What it is like now?
A miracle! 6 months as of the 14th and my life has done a 180. I no longer wake up with a hangover, my mind is clear and I am present today for my family. I haven’t been able to say that in years! If I can do it, anyone can!
