Has a lived experience of addiction

Elizabeth

I’m 29 years and 5 months sober and since I walked into the rooms of a 12-Step Program, my life has changed completely. From a life ruled by alcohol, smokes, pubs, clubs, loss of family and, 2 failed marriages (with lived experience of domestic abuse). I now have a wonderful marriage, my family love and respect me and alcohol does not rule ME. Through the love and care of other older, sober, members I learnt to find life without alcohol, a life which I thought was impossible.

I could not have done this on my own, I had to reach out and give it all I could possibly give.

One day at a time I kept doing meetings, reading the books, helping others and today I am happy, sober and I love life
