- Friends & Family
I’ve been in recovery for three years. I had noticed I had begun medicating with alcohol to an unhealthy level. I tried to stop, but I was unable to. I needed a power that was bigger than myself in order to manage my life.
The relationship I have with my family and kids has seen the biggest positive change. I am proud of my close support group and that I was able to overcome all the fears that I had. However there is still that fear factor there. Sometimes I get too wrapped up in myself. The way that I have been able to overcome that is to help another alcoholic and to be of service to others.
Know that there are other people out there, and you are not alone in this process. Practice rigorous honesty. If you are just starting recovery, find someone in recovery with a strong track record for openness and honesty. They have something that you want. They have that inner peace you will go to any lengths to get!
