On September 25, 2013, the recovered alcoholic/addict in my life celebrated his 30th year of being clean and sober. Over 30 years ago he said "I will never quit drinking!" Today he says, I will continue to live my life without alcohol or drugs. It took him many years to reach his "bottom". But when he did, he surrendered and committed his life to doing whatever it took to live a life free of addiction. He admitted he needed help, quite drinking and using, received support by joining a twelve-step program, finding a sponsor, getting guidance from an educated, knowledgeable chemical dependency counselor and having faith in his Higher Power. The early days of recovery were not easy after the rosy light of admission faded but he moved forward in his program to recover. Because I was so negatively affected by his addiction and my own co-dependency, I sought help and I too went through the 5 stages of recovery that my husband did. I have written specifically about this on a previous blog.
