My story, it is more my family's story. I fell in love with an alcoholic. We married a little over a year and a half ago and welcomed a beautiful daughter into our life seven months. My husband will celebrate five years of soberity on September 30th. While I have never known my husband not sober, the effects of alcoholism is very real in our household. Now that we have a daughter, education and awareness of this disease she may have creates a different dynamic in our family.
This is an important issue for me. Soberity saved my husband's life, his father's life, and his mother's life. Seeing him thrive and do service work makes me want to help however I can, not just being a support system to him or attending Al-Anon meetings.
