Good morning! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. What a beautiful day to be alive and sober! Yesterday, we celebrated Christmas with my famly a little North of where I live. It was so fun. Some of my cousins I haven't seen in a year. It was so fun to all get together. I'm not going to live in the past, but I remember last Christmas, and I wasn't really "there." I wasn't concerned about anyone but myself. It was all about when I was going to get my next drink. Not that I was making up for lost time this year, but I was. I wanted to enjoy every minute of it. No one is guaranteed life tomorrow, so I want to make and remember as many good memories as I possibly can. It was so fun watching my children play with their cousins, making great memories of their own. We are all so blessed. I am so blessed to have my family. And in sobriety, I have more friends now, that I consider family. I still talk to many friends ai made when I was in treatment. We all spent every minute of every day together for weeks, some months. Some of them know more about me, like really "about me" that some of my blood family. I have an extended family now, that will always be a part of my life. And for that I am truly grateful. Have a great day!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
