Cody's Story

Hello, my name is Cody Kershner, I’m 25 years old and I’ve been sober from alcohol since August 20th, 2019.Throughout my high school and post high school years I was always the guy who drank the most, I was the guy who stayed up the latest drinking and the guy who started the earliest the next day. I felt like I had it “under control” until 2019 when it completely got out of hand. It became a daily occurrence and started to mess with my life. I was drinking every morning, afternoon, and night for 4 months straight, whether I was at work, school, or just hanging out, I was always drinking.During my 4 month “binger,” I tried to quit, I remember one day I told myself if I could just go 24 hours without drinking I’d be fine, until I got about 6 hours in and the sweats, the shakes, the nausea, and everything else started to hit, and then I took 2 shots and within 30 minutes I felt fine again. It was at this point that I realized I’m in a bad place, but I think the turning point for me was when I got kicked out of school, almost got a dui, and started to develop liver problems. I truly think the biggest part was that I felt like such a disappointment to everyone around me, especially my parents.Getting sober from alcohol at 22 years old isn’t easy but it’s 100% worth it, and here I am 3 years sober, and I couldn’t have made it without the 2 most important things in my life, my family of course, and my found passion for fitness. I can honestly say the gym saved my life and it is what has kept me sober these past years.
