Good afternoon! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. Don't give up. Change is hard. and yes, the begininning is going to be the hardest. But once you get going, it does get easier. I remember when I was first getting sober, learning to do everything over...sober. I had done everything for so long, drunk. It was wierd doing things sober. It was weird doing things sober. Now this is terrible, but it was weird driving when I got home...sober. Everything I had done before, I was always in a haze. I was now clear headed. Grocery shopping, I don't remember the last time I had gone grocey shopping, sober. In the past few weeks, we have had a few people come back in the rooms, that have relapsed. That has got to be a hard thing. I am very proud of them for being able to come back though. Some people don't come back. But, don't give up, you can do it. It is soooo worth it. Life is so much better being sober. At least for me it is. That's all I have for today! Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
