I believe that all of my struggles are for a reason, and that one day, I can help encourage others because of them. In the spirit of being honest, for a long time, I felt that I needed to overcome my issues all alone. But in the midst of this, I am still learning acceptance […]

The road to recovery

How a helpful neighbor set this alcoholic on the road to recovery I’m an Alcoholic. My first drink led to my first blackout. Alcohol took away the shyness, paralyzing self-consciousness. It gave me a warm and happy new feeling that freed me up to do anything. I danced at parties, yelled in the street, sang […]
