Good morning! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful recovering alcoholic/addict. When I was drinking and stuff, I felt very alone. I pretty much did it to myself, I was isolating myself. When I got sober, I was worried I was going to start and continue this journey alone as well. I never realized how many other people feel the same way. When we get together physically or even on the computer, we are together. I know I can do this. I see people that are living sober everyday. They are not just not drinking, they are enjoying life sober. If I ever need to talk to someone, there are so many people I can talk to. I have recently joined some closed recovering groups on facebook. There are some many people just like me. Most I have never met, but can talk to on the same level, because they have been where I have been, and are where I am now. I am not alone one this journey of recovery. If you are struggling today, know that you are not alone. You matter so much. Don't give up. The hardest thing is to ask someone for help. But that is what we are here for, to help each other. To grow and mature and be a gift to one another. And if you are physically alone, know that God is with you. He will never leave your side. Well, that's all for today. Know you care, and you matter! Have a great day!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
