Clean and Sober

20140727_121243Hey everybody,
I am so Happy today, because on this day ( July 27th ) three years ago i drank my last beer, woot woot so awesome.I cant believe it has been three years, I never thought i could go longer than 9 months for a pregnancy.
On this day 3 years ago Darrell was considering not marrying me, because he came home and i was drunk and our kids were with me. Everyone told him to leave me alone, they said she will never change, and our wedding was supposed to be in three days. Thank God he didnt listen to everyone else cause i did change, BAMM WHAT Lol.
I wish i could get the word out to every addict and alcoholic in the world, that life is so much better when you’re clean. It has been 3 years since i drank any alcohol, and it has been more than 3 years since i abused pills. The last time i took any medication was right after my c-section 2 1/2 years ago, and even then i had my husband hold them and give them to me as prescribed, i was new in recovery and worried i wouldnt be able to take them like i was supposed to. I owe so much to my wonderful husband for helping to get me clean and in the beginning helping me to stay clean. Now there is nothing in this world that could ever make me wanna pick up that bottle again, i love that i finally know who i am. I never did before, alcohol was the very definition of me thats what others saw and its what i thought of myself, but now i really have a self. Its like spending more than half of your life without a soul and then you get clean and discover that it was there all along but it was being covered by your addictions. I am so thankful for my sobriety, my husband, my children, my life. I know that most of you all dont really know how bad i use to be but i was bad, at my worst point i weighed about 100 pounds, i never ate, and i could drink a couple bottles of liquor plus a 12 pack and walk just fine, pill wise it was to the point where i could take or snort 5 or 6 and not feel a thing except nautious. Doctors said my liver was in bad shape, and i didnt care.
But now i am in great health, my family is doing better than ever, and i truly love and enjoy everything about my life. Thanks to all of my wonderful new friends here on wordpress, you have helped me a lot on my journey, and i really appreciate all the support and love you have sent my way.

This post is dedicated To my wonderful husband, thank you so much babe i wouldnt be here without you, i love you so much and i am so very blessed to have you in my life, there isnt a man on this earth that could ever compare to you in my eyes.

  11. It doesn’t stop here. Stand firm to your now standard and never look back. I have never taken alcohol before, not smoked before now my pairs jelouse me, I know and I want to tell you something I learnt. Some thoughts may run into your mind like “hey are you this weak to take just a bottle” remember, just a bottle can mess your whole life up again and this time it could be drastic on you. Your husband must be a good man. I have never heard of such a man until now. I read your other article last few months and I guess he is the best for you. More strength to him. Good thought.

One of us was always strong enough to pull the other back. I was to lazy to get dressed so someone could take a pic of me, besides i didnt want it to look forced or fake just the real me after being clean for 3 years.

    Just about three years ago I tossed back my last shot of Jack. I spent a fortune on alcohol and other mind altering things in my life. I was able to kick them all cold turkey but the booze. My wife laid down the law get right or get gone. I never drank a single drop again. Good for you on beating a bad habit. I feel so much better not drinking and I no longer have to wonder about what a jerk I was the night before. =)
