Coming into The Last House I was 34 days sober and I was still very desperate for any help I could get. I thought that I was destined or doomed to die a miserable junkie and that there was no way of changing that. My hopeless state felt like the only normal one and, today, I am completely baffled at how that has completely turned around.
My sleep schedule is manageable. I’m in the best physical shape I have ever been in. I sponsor other men struggling with their alcoholism. I’ve held numerous commitments. I’ve spoken at numerous meetings. I work as a manager at the very same sober-living I successfully completed. I have a host of friends in recovery. I have a better relationship with my family, and I am self-sufficient. Best of all, I have found a relationship with a power greater than myself. I have a new outlook on life, and I can’t deny its marvel or wonder. My future feels bright and I can’t say I have ever felt that way before.
