What it was like: 14 years of humiliation, degradation, loneliness and sadness –broken promises and shattered dreams.
What happened: A strong desire is born. A decision is made. A commitment is instituted.
What it is like now: Reconnection with myself, my family and my God.
What I learned: God doesn’t make junk.
What I do: Help others whenever possible. To the world, I am only one person,but to one person, I could be the world.
How I feel: So very grateful for 30 years clean of any mind altering substance.
I used drugs of different types until I got sober in 2013. Sadly, my brother did not win the battle but remains as always very close to all of our hearts.
I have remained sober through all the loss and hardships life has given me to handle since. I reached 3 years of sobriety this past Thanksgiving. One for the records, that I can say I am truly thankful for, is to be with everyone that I truly cherish and love.
