Good afternoon! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. I guess one reason I didn't want to quit drinking was that I was scared. I was scared to grow up. Scared to be responsible. That may sound stupid. I know I am an adult and have kids, but I didn't wanna pay bills, I didn't wanna go to work, but I wanted to do what I wanted to do, and you just can't do all of those things. You kind of need money to do that, and I'm not independently wealthy and don't have a sugar daddy, so guess I just needed to grow up, get sober and get on with my life. And once I did that, I found out life is good. Resposibility isn't so bad. Yeah, it does still suck a little, but it does have it's perks. I GET to get things. I make them opportunities, not obligations. I GET to go to work, some people don't get to, some people don't have jobs. I GET to pay my house payment, some people don't have a roof over their head, or a bed on lay on. Today I am proud to be free of the bondage of drugs and alcohol. It no longer has control of my life. That's all I have today. Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
