If and without God I wouldn't know a sober life ever until now? I finally after 32 plus years of alcohol abuse and drugs also decided it was no longer fun? It was more work than fun probably for the past 15yrs now. So, I thought what do I have to lose if I just ask God to help me get out of this horrible addiction to alcohol & drugs. All that could happen is I get sober, then I first of all called a hotline, a Crisis line here in town where I live. They didn't believe me when I said this to them. So then I went to my caseworker I had been working with and they didn't believe me either? then they kept saying your what addicted to what, who, what are you talking about. I kept saying me I have been using drugs & alcohol everyday almost for the past life since I was aged 15yrs.old. Which I was 45yrs at the time. They sent me to a detox place and they wouldn't let me in cause I was down & out a homeless person or dirty or had needle marks, or I am not sure what an alcoholic or addict is supposed to look like? Anyway's I had to talk & talk for hours until they would believe me. Then they finally gave me a Urinalysis test and saw that I had a high concentration of opiates and alcohol in my system. They said your over the legal limit 4times how are you walking and talking so well? I said what I do this everyday and that's my life. Finally they listened to me, but they still didn't kinda think I was telling them the truth. But here I am now sober going on my 3rd year or more. I am so darn happy I could sing in the streets. BUT GOD HELPED ME GET TO WHERE I AM NOW AND I COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT HIM. GOD BLESS SOBRIETY LIFESTYLE CHANGES IN MY LIFE NOW!
