Hi, I’m Danielle and I’m an alcoholic.
I’m about to be a slightly open book about my addiction for a minute here.
My journey started yesterday. Outpatient addiction treatment program. It’s three months long. I’m going to be going three hours a day, four days a week for the first month. The second month drops to three days a week. The third month is two days a week.
I’ve struggled, for as long as I can remember, with excessive drinking.
Blackouts. Regrets. Hangovers.
In case you’re wondering – Yes, my hospital visit did have something to do with drinking, hence, sobriety.
Do I want to be sober? No. Do I need to be? Yes.
My sober date is July 1st. The day I landed myself in the hospital. I’m trying my best to not fall off the wagon. As they say, one day at a time. Treatment should help. Maybe some AA classes and a sponsor.
It’s hard to not want to drink when it’s everywhere. Like this:
I didn’t even mean to click on this filter, it just popped up. Thanks Snapchat, that really helps things. *eyeroll*
I’m actually super excited for my treatment. As much as I don’t want to quit drinking yet, I think that will change over time. It just still new and still difficult.
I don’t mean for this to open the door to criticize me. I’m sharing with the hopes of support, help, encouragement, and people that can relate to my struggles.
I have a long road ahead of me, but I know it’s all for the best.
Feel free to leave a comment with some encouragement for me. 🙂
