I’ve been clean and sober for 1557 days. Sometimes I lose track, yet occasionally all I can do is count the seconds.
Recently, one of our Sober Mommies was told by someone in a 12-step program that she should not consider herself, “in recovery” because she wasn’t in 12-step.
I was seventeen when I found alcohol and began to self-harm. It wasn’t drastic, but the relief I found was a catalyst for the next six years.
By choosing food over the things that really mattered, such as family and health, I was playing with fire, and I knew it.
