I have been sober since July 5th, 2014.
It was the result of my rock bottom and the trauma that went along with it. I don’t want to go into details about that just now, maybe one day I’ll be brave enough to. My rock bottom consisted of puking into a bucket in a dark room while I tried to piece together what happened. I’m lucky enough that I have no memory of what happened. But then I had to take whatever everyone else said as truth to what happened.
I made my way out of the hole I got myself into and I’ve been going good ever since. However, there are always going to be roadblocks on that journey. This is what I learned after 6 years sober.
