Real Addiction Stories

As a sober community and online addiction help forum we are often given beautiful, real stories from individuals who have overcome addiction. We want to celebrate sobriety, help break the stigma around addiction and provide hope.

We also get heartbreaking stories from the loved ones who have lost a son, a daughter, a spouse, a parent, a friend… and, they want to share their message to help support others who are going through the same thing. Families also want to remember their loved one and help encourage those who are currently struggling from addiction to seek help.

All stories shared here come from real people, just like you. Read the stories, join the discussion in our forum and share your own stories. You could be saving a life.

    I really appreciated finding this site. It brings a message of hope but also keeps us informed about the present situation. I will keep coming back to read and write and learn from others and I am very grateful to the people who administer this site and they have my sincere thanks. Additionally, and probably most important do not hesitate to call their number as they answer it immediately and have resources at their disposal that they can help you with if you are in need of help

    I’ve been clean sober for going on three months and I am finally getting some of my interactions with society back, I can actually talk to people and really not feel the stress of looking for my next drink. My self esteem is coming back, all in all I’m so so happy about life it’s a amazing feeling. One Day at a time. Don’t give up!!!!
