Sober Since: 10 / 19 / 2013
Sober For: 8 Years & 218 Days
What it was like?
It was like a rite. As soon as I could I would start drinking and drink until I passed out. Every day, and triple the amount on weekends. Not paying bills so I could buy.
I was 3 times the legal limit when I got arrested for domestic assault against my wife and we weren't even married yet. That was the final straw. I did not want to lose my wife and grandkids.
What it is like now?
Never felt better. My wife and I are happy, we have a nice house and car, and I now have 2 grandchildren to love.
