Eight Years — 9 Comments

  1. Oh my dear dear Natalie. How I have missed your writing. How I have missed that gracious ebb and flow of words. Your sobriety is a testament to so much but most of all it is a testament to the largeness of your heart and what it can hold.

    Hugs and kudos on this journey!

  2. Hi Natalie! Happy 8th! I wasn’t too far behind you on 10/18. I remember those early days for both of us, with your mom being a supporter for both of us.
    As far as meetings, since moving to Texas I no longer go much at all. It’s not the same as my SoCal AA family. I’m still in touch with many of them, and I know that I am a phone call away if I need them, or they need me.
    For me I am totally content and happy. My happiness comes from knowing my granddaughters won’t ever see a drunk Grammy. I also have a great job, and an amazing relationship with my three kids. THAT’S what keeps me sober.

  3. Congratulations on over 8 years!

    I’m with you on cryptic phone notes often being the only writing I do. No matter how long it takes, though, it’s always worth the struggle and the stitched-together minutes of writing here and there to create a post like this. The difficulty and reward of both your sobriety and writing while working/momming come through beautifully.

  4. I’m a little late so now it’s almost 9 years, but congratulations! I relate to this post from the child of an alcoholic perspective and it touches me deeply.

  5. Love reading stories like this! Congratulations! These are the stories I love sharing at our treatment center because it inspires hope for so many people. It takes a lot of courage and vulnerability to write a piece like this. Thank you!
