My Sobriety

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. 🙂

  2. Congrats on your decision to take back control of your life. I like to say mind over matter. There are plenty of fun things to do without alcohol and you will feel so much better in the morning. Good luck. It won’t be easy but you’ve got this.
