Alive and Sober
Today I am celebrating one year of sobriety. I was the typical high functioning alcoholic mom. I worked hard, maintained a full-time job, raised my children, volunteered and went to church. However I would end each day with 1-2 bottles of wine and a few lorazapams. I should be dead… I would be dead today if I did not stop! The year ahead is now about rebuilding my body and mind to reflect my sobriety. It is time for me to tell my story and I pray that God will lead me in this endeavor. God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
