I began my sobriety journey on September 25th, 2020. On this terrifying morning,I experienced a seizure caused by alcohol withdrawal. This was my second seizure cause by withdrawal, so I knew exactly what had happened. With my hands still trembling, and barely even being able to speak, I somehow managed to call my mom. When she answered, I said 3 simple words… “I NEED HELP!” I had attempted sobriety before, but my strong denial interfered with my success. Finally, I was able to see through the desolate fog. I realized it was time to make a drastic, life altering change. My life depended on it! A few days later, I checked myself in to a 4 week inpatient rehab facility, and I have never looked back. I will be celebrating 15 months of sobriety on Christmas Day!
