Day One

On February 28th 2017 I had a divine intervention. After 14 years of being an alcoholic I got my first DUI. This event was an awakening to all the hurt I have caused others and all the hurt I had pent-up inside. On March 1st 2017 I entered the Princeton House. This will be my first time going to rehabilitation. I have gone to detox and IOPs, but never inpatient. My mind was so numb at this time that I can’t really say I felt much emotion. I guess I was still processing the whole situation.  It took me a few days to get “clear-headed” I guess between the time off alcohol and the medications they were giving me I was starting to feel better. The Rehab I went to have a first responder program, which I did not know about prior to going to The Princeton House.  Everyday first responders would get together for an hour and talk about addiction and our line of work. I felt comfortable in this group, it was reliving to know other people in my profession suffer with the same disease. This program helped me realize the work I needed to get done on myself.  We were given assignments everyday. I focused my attention on step 1 and it was off to the races for me……

I am in recovery from alcohol for a little over 1 year now. I want to inspire and give hope to people who feel hopeless and lost in this disease. There is a way out, it is not easy, but it's worth it! Come see my journey.
