Life before and after sobriety

Sue T., England

             Before, life was meaningless, drink was the only thing I thought about 24/7. My partner was just someone who passed me by in the kitchen, lounge and bedroom. He suffered 24/7. The gentle giant... who took me away from working, and made me a lady of leisure, looked after me, worked to buy my drink, then slowly but surely gave up on me and I know he wished I would either give up the drink, or move out.

             After, life is so wonderful, the gentle giant also has "a life beyond his wildest dreams".   I have so many friends (true friends)  and the true miracle is, I don't want or need a drink anymore.
 
The mornings are a welcome sight instead of a dread. Thank God I found AA ... it saved my life and the life of my gentle giant.  We now live a wonderful life and he doesn't have to stay awake at night to make sure I get to bed safely.  I look forward to him walking in the door with a smile on his face instead of a growl, thanks for reading me, luv, sue T aka lydia xxxx
