The bottom

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.

I too tried to commit suicide while I was on drugs because I saw no way out and no future! But God did not let me die because he has a plan, a future for my life. This is true for you too! I am sure you have probably figured that out in your twelve years sober! But he has amazing things still in store for you! Thank you for sharing your story and never stop sharing! Because there may be someone reading that is on the verge of giving up but then they will read your story and know there is Hope!! Be Blessed!
