“I’m a recovering alcoholic. I have been sober for 18 months and the journey has not been easy. I often find myself struggling with my addiction, but it’s important to take time out of each day to reflect on what got me here.”
“This morning, I woke up feeling defeated because drinking was all that would make me happy anymore. But then I remembered how much better life is without alcohol in it and felt content with today.”
“In this blog post series, you will find reflections from a recovering alcoholic who is striving to live a sober lifestyle.”

And we have ceased fighting anything or anyone—even alcohol.ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 84
Alcoholics Anonymous has been a life saver for me. I thought it would be the same as all my previous experiences-a struggle and that AAs might provide strength in this fight, but instead they have given victory after victory over alcohol without fail!
If anything comes up next time around with living or working problems then who knows what others battles could’ve been won had I only let myself get stronger through these steps first hand experience gives us an edge against ourselves when our wills need doing rather than some other person telling us how things should go at every turn…
I am so grateful to be able to share my story. If you are struggling with alcohol addiction, please don’t give up on yourself and know that there is hope for you.
Please reach out today. The A.A program has helped me tremendously in overcoming addiction, but it can also help others who need a helping hand through their journey of sobriety.”
