Today I’m thankful to celebrate eight years of recovery from the tyranny alcohol had in my life. Too many mornings swearing “that” was never going to happen again. Promising myself I was better. Trapped. Defeated. On 29 September, 2012, I reached out my hand to another alcoholic and I asked for help. I went to Alcoholic Anonymous meetings. I tried to serve others. I began to clean up the wreckage I caused. A miracle happened. The obsession to drink was lifted and I found peace. That doesn’t mean life is always “love and light”! But I don’t have to drink and get drunk to “solve” my problems. Reach out if you’re struggling, there is a solution. Peace!
