Good morning! My name is Lauren, and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. Today I am roller coaster of emotions. Blessed to sober, happly to be alive, but we all go through difficult times in our lives, and I can be sad too. But today I am not running to the bottle to fix that problem. Smoking a bowl won't make my bills stop. Snorting a line won't make cancer go away. Life goes on. Today I can turn to God when I have stuggles, not to alcohol or whatever. Today, I saw familar faces in the paper that will be doing a lot of years for some stupid decisions related to drugs, and it makes me glad of the decision I made to get clean and sober. There is only one end on the road I was heading: jails, institutions or death. And I was headed there fast. Today, I ask God for help when I have a problem, I pray to Him. That's all I have for today. Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
