What it was like?
It started out fun and cute but my God, once that monkey was on my back...I couldn't get him off! Jails, institutions and near-death experiences all are a part of my journey. The brokenness and lost of self was at an all time high and a way up and out just seemed impossible at times. My allergy to drugs and alcohol became unbearable. Relapse after relapse...try after try...program after program...failure after failure became my mantra.
I FOUGHT! I LOST! I S U R R E N D E R E D!!!
What it is like now?
TODAY...let's just say...I WON'T COMPLAIN!! I've had some good days, I've had some hills to climb and some sleepless nights but when I look around and think things over, any day clean, good or bad, is better than any of my using days. I make an effort to surrender on a daily basis. I made a commitment to self and I made a covenant with my Higher Power.
