Sober Since: 11 / 01 / 1988
Sober For: 33 Years & 209 Days
What it was like?
Escapism in a bottle. Instant self esteem, and feeling part of. Mental obsession coupled with a physical allergy. Looking for love in all the wrong places.
I was a drunken slut. Insecure and impulsive I sought out love through booze and men from the ages of 17-23 when I got sober. As a result I took a lot of showers trying to wash the filthy off.
What it is like now?
Sobriety is a way of life thanks to the planned program of action in AA and G-d. I have recovered from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body. The promises have come true.
