Sober For: 5 Years & 106 Days
What it was like?
Deep in my addiction I was confused about life and what exactly I wanted out of it. I never thought about the consequences of my actions and I had many close encounters and experiences with death. I’m honestly surprised that I am alive to tell my story. Everything that I thought was important was not really that important. I had childhood trauma that I couldn’t get over and I had no idea how to properly cope with my emotions or my life.
I hit rock bottom. I lost absolutely everything. It was either get sober or die and I had too much to live for to allow myself to be taken out by my addiction not giving this world my full potential. The version of me that I deserve to be.
What it is like now?
I have three years sober from alcohol as of a few days ago! I was meant to be here and I was meant to share my story. I changed everything in my life to get to where I am today. I am currently going to school and I have maintained a 4.0 for the last year and a half. I have an amazing relationship with higher power. I’m exactly who I want to be and I’m exactly where I want to be in life. I have so much more growing to do but it feels so good to do it when I am sober!
