Alcohol made my life miserable and unmanageable. I was a functional alcoholic, whose only goal at the end of the day was to go from bar to bar and have an endless talk and a black out to suppress my pain and anguish and fill the emptiness of my life with alcohol.
I have hurt my family and friends but you know all this because you are there.
15 years ago I got clean and sober for a year and relapsed. At that time I didn't know the difference between sobriety and abstinence. I didn't know what it meant to be emotionally balanced and I relapsed deeper.
I've been there and been through it.
You can too.
Pick up a phone instead of a drink.
I'm here for you.
