My name is Michele and I am an alcholic and drug addict. I have been sober for 2.5 years. I went to a 28 day treatment program in May of 2006. I am very active in my recovery. I attend lots of AA (and NA) meetings. I have a sponsor and have worked the steps once so far. I also sponsor another woman. I do service work (secretary for our group, I run the Thursday night meeting, I do the AA hotline). I put my recovery first....above anything else in my life. I ended up leaving my husband of 12 years after I got sober. He didn't really support my sobriety and is an alcholic/addict himself. I basically raise our three kids by myself. I am happy for my life today and I know I owe it all to Alcholics Anonymous. But life is hard sometimes. I am exhausted form "doing it all". I don't have the serenity that I had in my first year of sobriety. I work hard at recovery-make it a priority every day. I'm grateful....but I'm worn out. Anyway-thanks for listening.
