Today, November 10th, I have 27 months of sobriety, and the life I have
in recovery just continues to get better and better! I was addicted to
opiates and alcohol for almost 40 years, and
been to jail, multiple rehabs, psychiatrists, counselors, etc. I
finally surrendered to God my last time in rehab, started going to
meetings again, got a sponsor and worked the steps. I recently told my
story to my NA home group, and I woke up this morning to a message
asking me to share my story at one of my AA groups here, in a few weeks.
I am so blessed with a loving family, friends in and out of "the
rooms," a wonderful church and pastor, and a great job and coworkers.
The greatest gift I've received is a loving, forgiving God who has
allowed me to receive His grace and mercy and live the life that he's
always wanted for me. I pray daily, thanking Him for what He's done for
me and for the addict/alcoholic who's still suffering. It's NEVER too
late to get clean and sober! I was 52, and I have a wonderful life in
