I agree something makes us decide to stay sober eventually or not.
Personal I could have saved myself and my family I whole lot of trouble by doing so earlier.
I follow Kate’s Sobriety Blog (http://thesoberschool.com/forget-rock-bottom/) and quite agree with her article.
If I were to look at my life moments that should have been rock bottom weren’t. I was hospitalised at 25 while doing a Multinational Role that involved a lot of travelling , I was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder and was hold to stop drinking. I was supporting our household at the time as my husband was complementing his master and so it continue to work and thus drink.
I was in a neck brace at my 25 st birthday after a guy jumped a red lighted. My car was a right off , while trying to phone my husband my phone got stolen.I was drunk at the time.
I broke my toe in Mozambique out of a two storey window to get more alcohol when my friend had told me a had enough and had locked my up their.
I had overdosed on a large amount of alcohol and prescription drugs while living down South and had to be taken to hospital/
So what changed?
One incident shortly after arriving in Nothingham . We went to a child parent meeting , I was drunk . Not full over drunk . But one bottle down ,noticable though. I was horrified. Who had a become?
i knew then i had to change.
40 days sober today!
