One Year Sober😊

Hi! My name is Brittany and I am celebrating one year of sobriety today! In my disease, I lost so much. I lost money, tore down relationships, and wasn’t there for the moments that I needed to be the most. But, finally, I got sick and tired of being sick and tired. I remember thinking, “What is the point?” “Why am I defending this relationship with booze and drugs, when it does absolutely nothing for me?” I decided that I was done putting my life is the hands of booze. I wanted more. What I had been doing was not working for me anymore. I was ready for something different. For something real. I was ready for a big change. And that change, I new that change had to start in me. So, a year ago today, I went to my first meeting and haven’t used drugs or alcohol since.

My life is completely different today! I have an amazing job, I have people in my life that love me, I have countless opportunities for my future. I HAVE A FUTURE! And guess what! I want it! I want to live, I want to explore all this life has to offer, and I want to be present in each and every moment. My sobriety has made this beautiful life so precious. For the first time, I’m not only living, but I WANT TO LIVE. I am incredibly grateful to be alive and sober. I can’t wait to see what else lies ahead for me in this new life.
