Sobriety is so much better than alcoholism, because with sobriety, you have a future.
When you were a small child and someone asked you what you wanted to become when you grow up, you probably answered something like wanting to become the president, a doctor, actor or athlete. Maybe you wanted to be a teacher, or a lawyer, or even something one of your parents did for a living. You probably also changed your mind very often.
One thing is certain: you never said that you wanted to be an alcoholic or be addicted to any other drug when you grew up.
Yet somehow, it happened. Your life went way off course somewhere. You could possible tell a hundred stories of what went wrong with your life and ultimately led to your addiction. You know what? I’ll believe every word you say because I’ve been there myself.
Maybe you blame yourself, or maybe you blame others or your circumstances. Perhaps there are legitimate reasons, but perhaps not. At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter anymore, does it? It is what it is, and you CAN’T change the past.
