I’ve been clean from alcohol for 9 months. It’s been such a rough road, alcohol consumed my entire life, it was apart of me. After waking up in the hospital for attempted suicide I realized I need to change. I am important and do matter. They say not to make any big changes in the beginning of your sobering but I moved miiiiiles away from my home and started fresh. Started going to meetings 12 times a day and making sober friends. Now I have a job and I’m saving to get my own place. I couldn’t be happier. I’m able to feel emotions I would try to numb in the past, and work through them. I love myself and the person I’m growing in to.
