Good evening! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. I really like this quote. It's crazy how when I quit drinking, life got better. Maybe it is still the same, but with me not drinking made me realize that life wasn't so bad. Before, I was upset about how we were barely making ends meet. But now I see it as, we both have jobs. I have had a lot of opportunities in my sobriety, and take advantage of each one I am given. I also started thinking about how it could be worse. Someone is always worse off than me. I am so blessed to have everything that I do have. I could have lost a lot more in my addiction. I'm lucky to still have a wonderful husband, 2 beautiful children, loving parents and family, and a job. I have heard of so many others who lost it all before they got sober. Some who lost it all, and died that way. And it hurts me to see others going down that same path, not knowing what is ahead of them. I can only speak of my experiences, to help someone else. Just to share my joys of sobriety and how life can and will get better, if the work is put into it. Well, that's all for tonight. Have a great night!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
