Friends and Fam, I am 9 months sober today! 9 months ago I was a full blown alcoholic with a coke habit, under-employed, getting kicked out of my living situation, self destructive – basically a dying star.
That’s not to say that I haven’t wanted to, been tempted or that I haven’t constantly dreamed about using. But despite the temptations and urges and struggles I’ve faced – I resisted and persisted.
It’s been a wild fucking ride dealing with every day life without my crutch to lean on or my way to escape. But damn am I grateful for every single moment of this struggle.
Today I am healthy, I am no longer escaping the hard situations/conversations and I’m working very hard on taking my life back.
But best of all, I’m alive and grateful for every day I’m gifted here on earth. What I’ve found to be most important, above everything else that life has thrown my way are my relationships. My friends, my family, my loved ones – you matter and I will spend my life loving you and doing whatever I can to help you. Thank you for supporting me and believing in me when no one else did.
Love love love love love!!!!!!
