600 Days Sober – @SoberMovement
This is a vulnerable post for me. My story is something I’m always willing to share because for the first time in my life I can say “I’m proud of myself”. The picture on the left still stings my heart. Some of you know how that photo came about, some don’t, but the story is not what is important. After this awful situation my disease was stronger than me. It still consumed me. I didn’t stop drinking after that experience. I didn’t want to admit that I had a problem. I’ve always had a problem with alcohol, yet I couldn’t put down the bottle. Life leads us to unexpected places. More years of damage and hurt continued as I let alcohol be in my life. 600 days ago I stopped drinking. I’ve never looked back. My future is bright, I love myself, I appreciate all those who have helped me walk this path, and those who were there for me when I said “I need help”. Asking for help is hard. I want people to know that if they are struggling with addiction I am ALWAYS here for you. I do not judge. I welcome the conversation even if your goal is not to quit completely. I love you all. I am here for you. Thank you for being here for me.
