One Year.

So, I’ve been meaning to post this for a while, but I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had the chance to do this until now.

March 10, 2013 marked 365 days clean.

I cannot believe it’s been over a year now. Last year I was a mess. Skipping and failing school, stealing, lying, cheating, attempting suicide, etc. But today I’m going to college, working two jobs, going to meetings, and staying clean. I may not make the best decisions in the world, but at the end of the day, I’m clean. Without my family, friends, and NA network, I know for a fact that I wouldn’t be alive right now. I am so grateful for my life and everyone who is in it. 

I celebrated my first year clean with my best friend on March 15, 2013. I must say that being in a room with the people who mean the most to me and that I love, will never ever beat any high that I’ve had. There is not one person or thing that can take this feeling away from me. Life is amazing today. I have a sponsor, a home group, service commitment, and I’m working the steps.

If you truly believe that drugs and alcohol are the answer to your problems, think again. For five years I thought they were, but once I went to treatment, my perspective changed completely. Never in a million years did I think I could live a life without the use of drugs, but I do. I got clean when I was 17 years old. If I can do it, you can do it. I wouldn’t change this life for anything.

I love my life.
