Sober Since: 07 / 26 / 2016
Sober For: 5 Years & 300 Days
What it was like?
I always knew I was an alcoholic but couldn’t face the fact that it was true. I went through many Traumatic events and developed serious depression. After that I just didn’t care anymore and continued to drink no matter what the consequences were.
I’ve been through pancreatitis, DUI, broken leg, eye injury, and plenty of hospital visits. I have gone to three rehabs in 11 months and it took lucky number three to finally realize that I cannot live this life anymore.
What it is like now?
After I got out of my third rehab I made a promise to myself and my higher power that I would live my life sober. I’m extremely grateful that I found AA, my higher power (who I call my Creator), and found a life worth living. I just received my two year chip on July 26 and I am back in school, got my own apartment, and just bought myself a new car. None of these things would’ve been possible if I were still drinking and every day I am so grateful that I am sober, healthy, and finally happy!!
