Do You Have a Problem With Drinking or Drugs? You Can Find Freedom Too
When alcohol and drugs are the center of your universe, the thought of getting sober can be terrifying. You wonder how you will function as a human being without chemicals to keep you going.
In sobriety, you come to terms with the fact that you have no idea who you are when you’re not loaded – and you are horrified at this realization. You carry a lot of shame and guilt for your drugged or drunken episodes and you drink more alcohol or take more drugs to numb the pain. Indeed, addiction is a vicious cycle that can keep you in bondage for years. Sobriety is about breaking the chains.
I want you to know that there is hope for you – no matter how hopeless you may feel. You CAN find a new way to live and find peace, freedom, self-acceptance, love, and forgiveness when you make the commitment to get sober and stay sober. You may have done some ugly things when you were drunk or high, but you are a beautiful woman who deserves to live a life filled with joy. God wants you to have everything lovely that life has to offer.
To encourage you to take the brave first step in your sobriety, I want to share five things I adore about being a sober woman, wife, mom, daughter, and friend. I hope that by sharing a little bit of my life with you, I can help motivate you stop the madness of addiction and get into recovery if you are struggling with a substance abuse problem.
