Thinking about getting sober can be terrifying. Fear of the unknown is enough to keep people stuck in the cycle of addiction for years.
I was 35 the first time I learned how to say goodbye.
Seeing that photo of my infant son, my heart raced. It broke. It clawed at reality. My throat closed up. It choked.
I got sober alone. No 12-step program. No sober friends. Alcohol all around me. Alone.
