So yesterday I shared a little bit of my story on Instagram. It wasn’t easy but I did it.
Even right this second as I sit here writing I just can’t believe I’ve made it 6 whole months without any drugs or alcohol. Sure, there have been plenty of times where I have been tempted, had to straight up lock myself away from any form of substances or moments of extreme jealousy watching others partake when I couldn’t. But I resisted and persisted.
I decided to pick up my chip from one of the very first meetings I went to when I first got sober.
After my meeting, I sat in my car holding my chip and I was just overwhelmed with gratitude. I was thankful that I was alive and sitting in that car. That I get to wake up every morning sober and ready to take on whatever the day throws at me.
I decided to share the video here after all the feedback I got. I was so uncertain as to whether or not I should post such a thing but decided to say fuck it and just post it.
Fair warning, I do start to cry a bit, but I pull it together so it’s not a complete cry fest lol.
I love you all so very much and without the program and without my awesome support system, I frankly don’t know where I would be today. So thank you from the bottom of my alcoholic heart.
I’m 6 months sober and grateful to be here!
One day at a time….
