What it was like?

Living an life that was not managed by me, Alcohol managed my life and it was out of control

What happened?

After many years of drinking, on June 22, 2013 I knew I needed to change me, my ways and I also knew all these changes that were needed in my life needed to happen that day, because another day might not of been available to me by God. My strong will for change and my desire to have God guide me, control me is what made me a whole new person.

What it is like now?

After 5 plus years of sobriety, I have become an Addiction recovery coach, an Life coach. I started my crusade of sobriety by creating my own YouTube channel with a show I host called "Take Your Life Back Today Show. I have hosted over 2500 shows and have as many videos out for viewing. Recently I finished and published my first book titled " Bottoms Up- Surrendering To God, Not To Booze!" The book is available on Amazon and Kindle, May God Bless You all
