For a long time I tried to think or pray myself sober. Obviously, things like “I’m only going to drink on the weekends” and “Please God get me through this and I’ll never drink again” never worked. It was never going to work. If I didn’t want to stay where I was or sink even lower, I had to get up and do something. I had to fight to get my life back from the grips of alcoholism, so I did. Now that I’m living again I have to work hard everyday to make it the best life I can.
