@SweetMelissa429:  first of all, I am so happy for you. My hope for you and your ❤ today is this…I hope he never has to take a drink again one day at a time. Your life together will be amazing.

i woke up this morning and presented my ❤ a 25 year sobriety chip. I am having a surprise party for him with all our sober friends at 5pm. It is a very special day. 25 years is a very long time between cocktails!

We are both sober, have a program of recovery in our life, and choose not to take a drink or drug one day at a time. We would not have ANYTHING, if we were not sober. 

you two are blessed. Sobriety in a marriage ( if you be alcoholic or addicted) has to come first. 

My life is amazing today. I thank God everyday for my blessings……

hope you live happily ever after

@SweetMelissa429:  a very long journey to say the least. Oh, the stories I could tell. 

Alcoholism is a disease. It’s the only disease that tells a person they don’t have a disease. It is cunning, baffleing and very powerful. 

My first marriage, where I spent 25 years, was so impacted with addiction. I raised 4 kids in the insanity. Trust me, that is not pretty, an believe you me, even though my children and I have worked thru many of the issues kids of alcoholics end up with, they were affected. My kids tell stories of how they were afraid to come home from school because they thought they would find me dead.

i am not proud of a lot of the things I have done in my life, but it takes what it takes, to get where you get, if you survive. I am a blessed woman to have a second chance at a life full of love and serenity. It takes much work to stay sober. 

Please don’t ever forget as you move on with your life, that we only get a daily reprieve from our alcoholism., contingent on our spiritual growth. I am sober a very long time, but if you are alcoholic like me I am one drink away from a drunk. We don’t drink no matter what. My sobriety comes first, and so does my ❤’s. Without sobriety WE will not exist.
