What it was like?
Chaos, suffering and self-destruction was my world. The party was over before it began, over and over. Everything I was a part of turned into a bad situation. I was always lonely, scared, suicidal and depressed. It got to where it wasn't fun anymore, EVER. I lived to black out from pills and alcohol. I couldn't handle the pain, guilt and shame. I was dying over and over.
I lost all my friends, jobs, looks, sanity, a marriage, a home and any dignity at all. I went to rehab once to get off benzos for a month. I've had 3 Duis! I've been in jail a few months the past year from the last one. I had to start all over to repair the damage, do the work and get honest to heal.
What it is like now?
I go to AA meetings everyday! I do community service everyday at my local AA club so I stay connected to the fellowship. I'm honest now! I take it one day at a time and work the steps of AA. I meditate and excercise like a beast. I have an attitude of gratitude and the blessings keep coming! So glad to live an honest life!
