Celebrating 8 Awesome Years Sober – SC Podcast EP_03

It has been amazing to celebrate eight years of sobriety. There was a time in my life when I did not think I could go 24 hours without a drink. But one day at a time it all added up to 2922 days!

I believe that it is from the depths of pain that we can find the true spirit and the gifts of life! Sobriety has been and continues to be, an amazing journey – sometimes easy, sometimes not. Yet as time goes on I have learned to embrace life on life’s terms and be an active participant. As someone said you take the drinking out of life and you are left with LIFE.

Thank you all so much for all your support, emails and comments. We truly have an amazing community here. Sending big cyber hugs!!

Welcome to the next episode of the Sober Courage Pod! In the third episode of the podcast I am sharing my story with you. I hope that you find some inspiration in it to continue down your journey; keep moving forward and don’t ever lose hope!!!

Ep. 03: Alive—Celebrating 8 Years Sober

PODCAST MUSIC:
Alive – Sia
I was born in a thunderstorm
I grew up overnight
I played alone
I played on my own
I survived

Hey
I wanted everything I never had
Like the love that comes with light
I wore envy and I hated that
But I survived

I had a one-way ticket to a place where all the demons go
Where the wind don’t change
And nothing in the ground can ever grow
No hope, just lies
And you’re taught to cry in your pillow
But I survived
I’m still breathing, I’m still breathing
I’m alive

I found solace in the strangest place
Way in the back of my mind
I saw my life in a stranger’s face
And it was mine
I had a one-way ticket to a place where all the demons go
Where the wind don’t change
And nothing in the ground can ever grow
No hope, just lies
And you’re taught to cry in your pillow
But I survived
I’m still breathing, I’m still breathing
I’m alive

You took it all, but I’m still breathing
I had made every single mistake
That you could ever possibly make
I took and I took and I took what you gave
But you never noticed that I was in pain
I knew what I wanted, I went in and got it
Did all the things that you said that I wouldn’t
I told you that I would never be forgotten
And all in spite of you

And I’m still breathing, I’m still breathing
I’m alive (You took it all, but I’m still breathing)
