I am a recovering alcoholic. I have been sober for 20 years and it’s been a struggle to get here, but I feel like I’ve finally found my way.
As the days go by, life becomes more exciting because of how grateful I am to be free from addiction. You might think that alcoholics are always depressed or moody- well not me!
In this blog post series, you’ll learn about what it’s like to live in sobriety and how rewarding it can be! Welcome back to Daily Reflections December 10th Edition: “Life is Better Without Alcohol”

Now, what about the rest of the Twelfth Step? The wonderful energy it releases and the eager action by which it carries our message to the next suffering alcoholic and which finally translates the Twelve Steps into action upon all our affairs is the payoff, the magnificent reality, of Alcoholics Anonymous.TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 109
When I renounce the alcoholic world, it is not to abandon it; rather than live a life of distress and regret but act upon principles that have been integral parts in my growth.
These include love – both romantic as well as parental–the significance these things play on ones mental health (or lack thereof), plus selflessness when one can no longer care for themselves because they are too consumed by alcohol addiction.
I lead by example through transparency about what’s going inside oneself so others may learn from this example or take something away should you wish not just once but repeatedly until change occurs!
