4 years and 6 months Hello


I would like to say I am here becouse of You. I am sober from drugs amd alchol for 4 and half year and some days. It wasn’t easy but I made it. And I think a lot of people who start and want to quit this shit and wants it from a haeart will manage it. I was trying for years. I started as a teenager and been on drugs and alc for about 20 years. I ruined my carrer, I damaged my family and caused many harm to other people formy whole life. This one particular day and it was march 1 2019 I had worse day of my life. I realized how awful person I am and that I have nobody to ask for help. My wife left me with 2 sons. And the road ahead was straight to drinking till death.

I was first in my life in terror of this. The next day I searched first numer i found to addict therapist and asked for help. I was in my life on many therapies but i never was on it for myself. Always someone wanted me to go. Parents or wife and i never was truely motivated. I finished 1,5 year therapy. And joined AA and NA. I live with 12 step programm i get it from my AA sponsor.

My wife came back to me. I have a job, and we are trying to rebuilt our familly. My wife finished her therapy on codependancy. I can say today tahat I am happy person. Happyer than ever before.

It is wotrh to suffer at the beggining not always it is easy. I also have bad moments. But i would not exchanged my sobriety for any moment from my addicted life.

Keep it up it up it is worth it.

Yours shows the power that sobriety can have in life, particularly when you truly put in the work to repair relationships and become a healthy family as a whole again. That’s amazing work! I appreciate that you’ve shared how therapy can be of value in the process, that you don’t have to be alone in making changes to improve, and your wife benefitted from therapy, too. Great message.
