"For years, I battled a drinking addiction that completely went against my identity.”
"I am a part of many support groups, and we all help each other, but this is still killing me."
I knew if I could through those last 24 hours, while in full-fledged withdrawal, I could beat this addiction.
I want my son to succeed. I want to see him clean long-term.
“I do what I can to help hopefully one day and person at a time.”
"Those minutes became hours, which became days, weeks, months, and now, two years one month and 20 days later, I’m clean and sober."
"I have kept my tools of sobriety always at hand and try to pass along my experience, strength, and hope to the next person in need."
"My journey through drug treatment court and long-term treatment gave me coping skills for the rewarding life of recovery that I am blessed to lead today."
"You have to fill the void that exists once you put down the substance. "
"Today, I have a wonderful support group, a network full of loving, amazing people who genuinely care and understand me."
