I Am An Alcoholic, But 8 Years Sober.

I Iived with and married an alcoholic at 19 and before I knew it, I was one too. There was always tons of beer in the fridge and his friends all drank, so being young and in need of the feeling of either escape or belonging, I really am unsure which, I was one too. I happily can say I am EIGHT years sober, but not without scars to my two oldest children and second husband of 11 years now. I cannot affors the risk of being prideful of being sober, because I know that it( alcohol) is a formidable enemy, but I am happy, and it is SO nice to have the guilt and shame lifted from me. :)
