Dani is honored to be a part of the STRONG recovery community
I can not put into words what's taken place within me since I got sober. It's truly the most baffling and glorious feeling in the entire world. Two years ago I was merely a shell of a human. I wasn't living, I was existing. I was completely broken and completely lost.
I was terrified to be alive, therefore, anytime I was alone I spent going numb.
The pain from my experiences in life proved so painful. I eventually didn't care if I lived or died. In May of 2015 after my 2nd DUI AND a brutal assault, which landed me in the hospital, I
surrendered. I don't know how, or what it felt like, I had disappeared.
The last 18 months have been a surreal and amazing experience. Even in times of turmoil within sobriety, I've felt more peace than ever before. In March I took control and decided to play God. I relapsed after about a month or so of "dreaming it up"obsessing over drinking like normal people. It was exactly what I needed, and I found God's purpose for my life so deeply in those dark moments.
Today it brings me to tears. I'm so honored to be a part of such a STRONG community and to stand as an alcoholic, who has recovered. God is truly remarkable.
