On a monday in June...

I woke up depressed, sick and hungover and full of despair. I knew for a some time that I had problem and yet couldn't stop drinking. On that day, similar to many before, I knew that I was done with that sh*t. Ther was no dramatic music setting , no lightbeam coming from the skies, no moment of big revelation. Just me wanting to get sober more than anything else.
That was seven months ago.

So if you are struggling, don't give up, even if a long time of sobriety seems unattainable at the moment. It can be done, and it is all worth it.
