Sober Since: 01 / 20 / 1990
Sober For: 31 Years & 257 Days
What it was like?
I couldn’t live life on Life’s terms, was miserable and blamed everyone else.
The last two years before I got sober I was drinking every afternoon and feeling remorse and complete inability to stop the next morning. My father asked me to do an intervention about my mother’s drinking. After researching alcoholism at Stanford Medical Library, I was driving home and a voice that sounded like it was in the back seat said, “Everything you just read you can apply to you”. I pulled over and cried. It was true.
What it is like now?
I am happy, joyous and free one day at a time. I truly comprehend serenity and live a life of purpose, being of service.
