Sober For: 3 Years & 256 Days
What it was like?
I had gotten so used to putting alcohol first before everything. I didn't care about my health, I didn't care about my relationships, I just cared about when I'd get drunk next.
I had a baby, which stopped my drinking for 9 months, but the MINUTE I could drink, I did. And you bet I made up for lost time. It got to the point where I'd wake up after blacking out, and ANYTHING could have happened to my son and I wouldn't even know. I hated not being reliable and dependable for him. I hated the mother I was. My son didn't deserve it.
What it is like now?
It is amazing now. I am so happy I made the decision to cut alcohol completely out of my life. My relationship has improved, my life has improved, I saved up money to buy a house and am now living in my dream home. Everything I have now I owe to getting sober. I am finally in a good place for the first time since starting drinking.
