In 2001 I swallowed 200 pills because I wanted to leave this world. I was convinced that I was going to die an alcoholic and drug addict. 6 hours later I opened up my eyes. I was not dead. I knew right then that God had something he needed me to do. Something very important. This month I will celebrate 12 years of sobriety. Staying clean and sober takes a lot of hard work but it's worth every second.
