In 11 days, I will have 8 years of sobriety. I don't know who needs to hear this, but this is for you:
You are not broken. You have value beyond your wildest imagination. You are not lost. You hold the keys to your freedom. You are not damaged. You are a prized jewel in the crown of humanity. You matter.
There is a way out. THERE IS ANOTHER WAY.
You do not have to be alone. You do not have to feel the way you are feeling now ever again.
I got sober. I built my relationship with God AS I UNDERSTAND HIM. I followed my dreams. I allowed myself to walk into the word God spoke over my life. Tomorrow I will be on the coast of Italy sobbing my eyes out and thanking Him for letting me show people the power of a loving God.
I am not an alcoholic. I am a RECOVERED alcoholic. We DO recover. You can do this.
