5 years ago today, September 22nd, 2012, I had my last cigarette and my last drink of alcohol. I'm thankful for Jesus who walked me through my sobriety and held my hand when I wanted to have "just one beer" and told me to be strong and that he was going to get me through all of this trouble, pain, and stress. He did just that...here I am today, an alcoholic who still fights the urge to drink but knows that God has greater plans for me and my life. I think that God has somethi mother of the groom or bride wears in vintage style
ng great for me and I have to be sober to get it and experience it. Even if it's nothing to anyone else...I am proud of myself for it. 5 years is a long time to fight such a temptation, especially when playing my music in bars. But I have a great support system, my friends and family. I couldn't ask for better.
So tomorrow I'll wake up without a hangover and go to work feeling just fine. That in itself is a blessing. Can't tell you how many times I went to work hungover feeling like crap. I don't miss it at all.
In closing, thank you Jesus, my lord and savior, for saving me from my dark, haunting, overshadowing, problem and for dying on a cross to save my soul from my sins and Hell. I love you!
