What ever it takes.
I grew up in a very crazy & a very alcoholic household. Raised into the oil and gas industry. Drinking was natural, in fact if you weren’t drinking then something was wrong. I had my first drink when I was 7 years old and it stayed the center of my life until 11/26/16. I have lost a lot of friends and family from drinking including my dad, my best man, and many more. I knew I was gonna die and had to take the steps to get sober. I divorced my wife who was toxic to my sobriety, program and sanity, it was the hardest thing I ever had to do next to detox. It broke my heart to have to do that she brought me down and staying sober with her was impossible, but I had to do what I had to do to live. She died 10/22/17 while she was driving drunk on a four wheeler.
I have been sober a year and a half. I devote my time to my sponsee’s, program, and helping others. I give away what was so freely given to me and I have to pass it on. I keep Christ the center of my life and always try to do the next right thing. Life is life and sometimes it gets rough, but sticking with the winners, my sponsor, my program and my God. I get thru life peacefully at last.
