I have been an alcohol and drug abuser most of my life. I think the reason I used was to cover up the pain. I come from a very dysfunctional family. My father was an alcoholic, as was his parents and sisters. My mother was a very loving and caring person. My father was very abusive toward my mother, my sisters and I.
My life as a child really sucked. I was a very overweight child. My addiction the was food. I ate my feelings away. I could never fit in. The first time I tried alcohol I thought I found the perfect way to relieve the pain of my life. Boy was I wrong.
I could not deal with life and all the little hurdles there are. That is until I realized that as long as I abused substances I didn’t have a life. At least not a healthy one! I just woke up one day and thought to myself that I was on the verge of drinking myself to death. Not only that, I could have hurt or even killed innocent people while I was driving around drunk.
I have learned many things since I’ve been sober. Actually I have been another chance to start living!!!!!!
I am really glad after reading how effectively recovered from this. God bless you with a healthy life.
Am touched deeply reading your story..my friend is also trying hard to recover from alcohol, but please be careful. For all its glamor alcohol is still a very dangerous drug.It ruins our lives completely…
