I’ve been sober now for some 26 years and don’t miss the drugs and booze one bit. I can’t remember what it feels like to be drunk or high but I do remember how I felt when I was hung over or out of drugs. I remember talking to my sponsor and telling him there was no way I could stay sober. It was just too hard! That was 26 years ago and I am still able to stay sober a day at a time. The only advice I could give anyone I would be “Don’t Give Up!” I know that sounds cliché but it’s the truth. When a person is going through withdrawal their thinking is way off. I didn’t feel normal for a year when I made the decision to get sober. Even if you are lucky and can get into a 30 day rehab, your journey has just begun. It takes work and dedication to maintain a sober life.
