This blog post is a reflection of my experience as an alcoholic. It’s been four years since I’ve had a drink and it was not always easy to stay away from alcohol, but with time, I found that the benefits outweighed the negatives.
If you’re struggling with addiction or know someone who is, please consider reaching out for help. There are many resources available to support you in your recovery journey.
I hope this article inspires you and encourages you to take care of yourself! If anyone reading this has any questions about the process of quitting drinking feel free to reach out – I will do my best to answer them!

For without some degree of humility, no alcoholic can stay sober at all. . . . Without it, they cannot live to much useful purpose, or, in adversity, be able to summon the faith that can meet any emergency.TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 70
Humility is not about being meek.
Humility means “to show submissive respect,” and by living with humility, I realize that I am not the center of the world.
When drinking alcohol, my sense of self-importance was so inflated that it felt like no one had any power over me except myself; but then reality hit hard when things started to go wrong in every way possible because as a drunk man’s life falls apart he becomes more desperate for recovery until he finally decides to stop drinking entirely before his once promising future succumbs inevitably into ruin under such intense pressure from temptation on all sides around him – this cycle will never end unless you are ready and willing to take your first step toward sobriety now!
The magic of life is that we’re never too old to learn new things.
If I’m able to solve a problem, it means my proficiency level has increased and in the event that problems arise as one encounters pitfalls while living their everyday lives, they should be aware there’s an entity next-to-almighty willing help them out if you stop trying so hard and let God take care of everything!
Alcoholics Anonymous is not a religious organization. The only requirement for membership in AA is the desire to stop drinking, and that’s where humility comes into play.
Without it, an alcoholic cannot stay sober at all—and without sobriety they cannot live to much useful purpose or summon faith during adversity.
So whether you know someone who struggles with addiction or are yourself afflicted by this disease, don’t be afraid of asking for help from other people facing the same challenges as you do.
