Lucky number 7️⃣!!! That is 2,556 days of continuous Sobriety. What a gift. When I hear people say, “people don’t change” I always say the fuck they do and I’m living proof that change is possible. So please don’t let that mindset keep you down and in it.
I went from a decade long addiction with alcohol, binging with drugs, waking up in jails, hospitals, sleeping with men I had zero clue what their names were, sabotaging opportunities, ruining friendships, relationships, bankruptcy and slowly committing suicide every time I drank.
I wanted to die because that is how low I felt and was. Drinking for me is a matter of life or death. So when people ask why can’t you have one, because I can’t. My brain is not wired that way and I’m an alcoholic.
I’m now living a thriving sober life. Took me years to get here but I’m here! I had to trust the process and focus on my own journey. This by know means that my life is perfect and that I have it all because I don’t. Some days are still a little bit trying for me and recovery is not an easy road but one that is worth it because I’m and YOU are.
What I do have and cherish most in my life is my sobriety. I’m forever grateful for my hundreds of rock bottoms because it brought me to the place to finally say I’m done 7️⃣ years ago.
Sobriety/Recovery for me is the gift that keeps on keeping on!! Year 7️⃣ is going to be a TIME. 💜🚫🥃✌🏻
