Escaping Abuse & Road To Recovery

Share Story to Support

I’d like to share my story.

For those of you who don’t know, I’m an alcoholic. I’ve been drinking for almost 20 years.

I was raised around alcohol and drugs my whole life with mental illness and addiction running on both sides of my family.

I was raped when I was 14.

I’ve lost everything that meant anything to me. People, my friends, family. I got kicked out of my house.

I lost custody of my son 3 times.

If you can think it, I’ve been through it. I recently was living in the back of a small trailer, in extreme poverty, surrounded by someone who was dating an abusive partner, after I had already just gotten out of an abusive relationship.

I stayed there for around 4 months.

I was drinking everyday, and I was lucky if I got any sober days in-between. I was severely depressed, heart broken, and lonely.

I had no hot water, toilet, or food. It wasn’t until things boiled over between the people I was living with, where a family member came and rescued me and took me in, until I can get into a woman’s house.

I’m proud to say I’ve been going to AA meetings everyday, I have a sponsor, and am committed to doing my 90/90. I escaped.

If I can, you can too.
