This is my first attempt at starting a sobriety journal/diary. I am 29 years old and a recovering addict. I have been battling this disease since I was 20 years old. I struggled with "legal" addiction as I call it Aka Alcohol first which lead to a DWI and a three car pile up on April 1,2019.. and after that 15 days in jail, totaled my vehicle, broke ribs, broke ankle, broke wrist. I could not do anything by myself, for myself, for weeks! Think I quit drinking? NOPE! eventually yes, I gave up drinking,BUT picked up other bad habits. I am going to use this diary/journal.. whatever you want to call it. I call them my "sobriety books" because I keep my daily diary, some quotes, whatever I feel I need to write down and keep forever that involves my sobriety, and my life before, during, and after choosing to get sober. Some things may be a little much for some people, if that is you then just keep scrolling and dont read my posts. I am doing this to help ME, on this bumpy, twisted, rollercoaster type a life I am living, as well as to show others they arent alone.. My sobriety journey is still very fresh and new for me, September 15,2022 was the day I chose to start this journey, and October 31,2022 was the day I had my LAST dirty drug screen. So enjoy!
