I came to drinking late, I was very small and often got asked for ID, the embarrassment of this kept me out of pubs until I was 21. After this there was no stopping me. At 27 I was hospitalised and told this is the beginning of organ failure.
I’m 15 years sober now and enjoy helping others and passing on knowledge and most importantly support. Alcoholism is such a lonely journey, your recovery or comeback or whatever you want to call it doesn’t need to be. In fact the new people you meet will become stronger friends than you’ve ever known.
All of the above has become true for me as well as breaking a family cycle and raising children in a sober happy home is my greatest achievement.
