I will never be thankful or grateful for being an alcoholic. Because let’s be real, addiction is a b*tch. However, without my struggles I would have never stumbled upon my strengths. And for that I am thankful. I would have never thought I would use the word ‘strong’ to describe myself. Fast forward to a little over 3.5 years into recovery and ‘strong’ is the first word I choose to describe myself. I’ve walked through hell and here I am now shining bright learning just how strong I really am. Sobriety has taught me how to turn those struggles into strengths and to push through no matter what life may throw your way. Get sober and get strong!
