I attended my first group meeting today – three hours talking about addiction. After leaving the meeting, I felt happy. I found a place where I can openly talk about my issues, where I can let go of the pain that eats me every second of every day. I’m not choosing sobriety, I’m not choosing abstinence. I’m choosing to surrender and accept the fact I have a problem and I cured my depression with alcohol, drugs and sex for too long. This time is over. As a commitment to my recovery, I threw away all my bottles of scotch down the chute. I said a prayer and I let them fall far from my reach. I don’t need to be drunk to enjoy life. I don’t need to drink to write.
I just have to keep focusing on myself, and the road to happiness will show up. I’m sure of it.

Yes! And having people you can openly talk to is huge. I am so very happy for you. 🙂
Take it one day and one step at a time! You’ve got a million things to be happy about. You’ll see them soon. ❤
I went through alcoholism a long while ago. Believe me, if I can win, you can too. I’m always around if you need support.
TY Jason. The battle is very hard but I’m trying my best not to give up.
