New on here! Day#32 sober

:heart:

Helllo!!! My name is Ashley I’m 32years old. Currently i am in a residential program for my second time for alcoholism. I guess i thought i was that one person who is the “acception” get it right the first time, and I’m golden, good to go. Yeah… i found out shortly that a of glass of wine is just never going to happen and not in my cards. I started my heavy drinking in 2012. I was drinking a handle of jack Daniels myself. I reached two handles. (Fully capable of walking, talking, and functioning) 7days a week. it was fun till it wasn’t. i had to drink just to survive. My body wouldn’t function without it. It was if i was drunk if i didn’t drink. I got fatty liver disease, gastritis, GERD & in and out of the hospital as if it was my second home. I got pancreatitis 3 times. Till the next step was diabetes and then cirrhosis of the liver. Which from there is no turning back. Thanks to my higher power, GOD, gave me another chance. I am forever throwing in the towel and taking my life back and went back to Rehab Jan 10th to commit 100 percent. I have hurt the ones who love me the most, and i am ready to start a new book and new journey in my sobriety. Day 32 woooh!
