sober 3 years now

Unread postby saved by grace » Mon Oct 03, 2011 4:12 pm

Being sober for 3 years 3 months now has been a journey. After drinking and drugging for 20 years, I can honestly say that life now is a blessing. I lost SOOOO much in my addiction, most importantly my children. My oldest was 12, my daughter 7, and my baby, 2. 14 years of marriage gone. My children now, my oldest son is 28, daughter 22, my baby, 17. And now I am a grandmother. All those years lost- and , all that time drown in a bottle. By God's mercy and grace, I am sober, and yes, it get's easier.I tell people now,that" my worst day sober is a million times better than my best day drunk! Pray, and REALLY mean it, and KEEP praying and God will help you to break the viscious cycle of addiction. There are so many people who are such GOOD people who are addicts.Remember that when you are struggling.... Life is worth living sober and Family will forgive. It might take some time, but they do. Forgiving yourself,sets you free. Peace

I am coming up on 2 yrs on June 7 and have lost much as well. I can relate totally to how blessed I feel today. All those things I thought were so important are lost to the gratitude I feel today, and to have the chance appreciate the chance to love and be loved, knowing they deserve it and so do i
