    Default 2 Years Sober Next Month!

    Hello Everyone,

    I hope that this message gives you strength that you need to beat your addiction.

    I have been living a sober life for 2 years. My life was spiralling before I quit. I was using Meth for 3 years. After a year of using it, I was jobless for 2 years, lying to my family/friends and significant other about my addiction. I was living a double life. My life was in shambles and i knew I needed help to quit so I admitted it to my ex-boyfriend. He helped me through my addiction and I was able to turn my life around. The path to sobriety wasn't an easy one. I attended Smart Recovery meetings and it equipped me with the tools I needed so that i can bounce back during emotional turmoils. I broke up with my ex a year after I got sober and I though it was going to be a hard hump to recover but here I am still sober. Also, I went back to school to better myself. I knew I didn't want to stay in the path I was going to cause it didn't lead me anywhere. I now have the career of my dream, I made new friends and I'm in the best shape I've ever been.

    You can beat the odds! You're more than what you're addicted to!

    Very well done Abee_To1107

    What a great journey to share.

    Well done on that 2 year gift to yourself and those around you
    What got me sober was TRYING to get sober. Often when I lapsed, picked up, drank, I FELT thoroughly beaten. I thought at that time "there is no hope for me" Yet, when I had recovered from that thought just a little, I thought "I'll have another GO!" It was a few little sparks, rather than a flame, that got me here!

    Congratulations Abee_To1107, Well done!

    I can’t agree more with what you had written, we are more than what we were addicted too.
    and Yes, we can beat the odds and begin living beyond our addictive behaviors
    I used to have an addictive behavior,
    but I choose not to act that way anymore”
    Sobriety gave me Whatever Alcohol promised!
