You need to stop chasing short term pleasure if you ever want to be happy.

Welcome to sobriety and support. We are not alone.

Being born with addiction and giving this gift of sobriety to myself with persistent has opened up my mind to ask what else is possible. The wow moment of accomplishment of this task is overwhelming.

Now learning to deal and process strong emotions is an ongoing challenge. I am in it for the long term.

Thank you to all the support that was given me and others that continues. I did not do it on my own. I did attempt that once and almost died. I did it right the second time.

I still do not feel free enough to write about this journey. Thanks to all of you out here sharing your stories of hope and resilience.
