Talking 3 years clean and sober today!

Hey ya'll!!

I just want to share that today is my sobriety date. I have been clean and sober 3 years today.

I am so grateful to my higher power and AA for giving me the life that I only dreamed of.

Three years ago life was pretty horrible. I was going into rehab for my 7th time and was sure it would not work. I was soon having seizures and was in ICU on a breathing machine for a week. It was an awful time.

I got out of rehab and finally took some suggestions. I went to a meeting the day I got out of rehab and then went to 3 meetings the next day. I went to 2 or 3 meetings every day for the first 9 months. Then I dropped them to 1 meeting a day. That is what it took for me.

I went back to school at about 6 months sober. I made the dean's list my first semester back in college after a 21 year hiatus.

I have a wonderful husband who is truly the love of my life. I am so grateful that he stuck by me during those very difficult years.

I used EVERYDAY for 15 years. If I can get clean and sober anyone can.

Thanks for all of your ongoing support here at SR.
