How To Get 3 Years Sober

Addiction Recovery

For 10 years, my whole life was consumed by chasing that high, running away from the consequences and trying to get a break from the world. But every time the high ended, the world would hit me like a punch in the face.

For ten, despite knowing this deep down inside myself during those ten years of addiction, despite knowing this deep down inside myself during those ten years of addiction, despite knowing this deep down inside myself during those ten years of addiction, despite knowing this deep down inside myself during those ten years of addiction, despite knowing this deep down inside myself during those ten years of addiction, despite knowing this deep down inside myself during those ten years of addiction, despite knowing this deep down inside myself during those ten years of addiction years, my whole life was consumed by chasing that high, running away from the consequences and trying to get a break from the world.

From addiction to life and business coach

It hurt so much that all I could think about was how to make it stop, and drinking alcohol and using drugs seemed to be the solution.

If you are struggling with substance abuse, alcohol and drugs may seem the only way to escape your pain. But let me tell you: they’re not.

No matter how low my drinking made me feel, I always wanted more of it. The minute that first-morning drink hit my lips, all the shame, guilt and misery disappeared and everything felt right again.

There is a lot of shame associated with alcohol and drugs. When you drink or use drugs, you are running away from your problems and responsibilities. The fact that you feel bad about yourself only makes the addiction worse. You will drink more to make yourself feel better, but the cycle begins again eventually all the alcohol or drugs.

My life was filled with chaos and confusion when I was drinking heavily and couldn’t be more grateful for everything.

In retrospect, it seems like a miracle that I survived as long as I did. But when you’re in the depths of addiction, it can be hard to see beyond what’s happening in front of your eyes at that moment. It took me three years sober before I realised how lucky I am to be alive today and what a fantastic life full of possibilities awaits me now that this chapter has closed. A new era with more opportunities unfold. I am truly blessed to be here today.
