I am an alcoholic and I have been sober for five years. I started drinking in high school and my addiction progressed with time. It wasn’t until after college that alcohol was a problem in my life.
I lost jobs, friends, relationships-everything because of this one addiction. Luckily, at the age of 25, I decided to make the choice to no longer drink – it has been five years since then and my life is better than ever!
This blog post will share some reflections on what my first year without drinking has looked like for me.

The alcoholic thinking that led to my addiction was the result of a broken belief system.
I thought if it’s not under control then you are able, but with A.A.’s help and loyalty in God as well; this all changed when sobriety came along for me on Easter Sunday morning thanks to an open mind coupled with humility after accepting what needed done-to be better.
My new self has been so much more satisfying than anything before because without alcoholics anonymous, who knows where we would’ve ended up?
I am a sober alcoholic because of A.A., and it has changed my life for the better in so many ways. Would you like to be free from alcohol just as much as I was?
