Hi Joni.  What a shit story.  The alcoholic competitive side of me concedes . You win, your story is more shit than mine.  In a weird way, because of your honesty/recovery/sharing that was a compliment.  Look forward to shares in the future.  Regards, John

Congrats on your sobriety. I too am only child.  After my dad died suddenly about six years ago I began on a downward spiral. I want to be sober and stay sober so far two months. Some days are hard and I have a wonderful daughter who is ten with high functioning autism and she keeps me on my toes..

A Rare sneak peek at my last run.

 

Things were getting down to bare bones in May, 2013 including my weight. I dropped down to 170lbs and was wearing sweatshirts in hot weather. The piggy bank for my son withered down to pennies and I was getting drunk and high on IOU's. Fired and prosecuted from latest employer so now the need to get high was more than pleasure, it was to block out how much of a fuck up I've been and wishing the next one would take me out.
I hit a level of desperation that still to this day I can feel not being able to see 1 foot in front of me because all I could think about was where was the money coming from for the next one. I have been lying, cheating and stealing for awhile now so lately I have been messing with the idea of strongarming some defenseless person walking away from an atm with a Snickers bar jammed in their sides.
On May 5th [4 years ago today] I woke up and called my dealer to beg for "one last hit" and he said no. My convo with him must of been loud on the phone because she was listening from the other room. "GET...OUT....NOW". (I thought, Uh oh back to the looney bin.) I begged for a few dollars for the road and straight to the only thing that was always there - that bottle of bottom shelf yuck face that came with me all the way to the steps of the mental hospital.

 

A few miracles happened after that but I have been happily sober since.

It never ceases to amaze me how intimately other's stories mirror mine ... and yes, a lot of miracles have come along after I decided to surrender myself to the program of AA ...

Can't believe I'm still around ... Good post Visionz ...
