Thanks for creating this non judgemental and safe platform. Substance use has been a pattern in my life and lately it has taken a toll on me. I knew my alcohol and substance use was progressing as I turned into a daily drinker and it eventually caught up to me. I just recently received my second DUI and although I’m bummed to be have to go through the harsher legalities this time around I feel blessed that this experience happened to me. It’s a blessing because I’m sober and actually remember what happened the night before. It felt wierd not going go lane 5, the alcohol and spirits aisle within the first month of sobriety, but with my AA program, therapy and support from my friends and familyI have been able to feel clear minded and liberated for once. Most importantly I realized that I’m being honest with myself and it feels damn great....
