Hi, my name is eric and i am an alcoholic. i've pretty much been an alcoholic all my adult life. i noticed my drinking excelled to the extreme around 2005. it took me going to two other rehabs and two hospitalizations due to alcohol to honestly realize that death was now knocking on my door. with having my 1st alcoholic seizure i had hit my rock bottom and destroying a 20-year marriage that ended in divorce and a strained relationship with my 3 sons. i came to the lighthouse in may of 2017. i had to take treatment serious or soon i would see my life come to an end. i listened and took in every meeting, class worksheets, my own notations, numerous therapy and counseling sessions with the right mind of being sober. i left the lighthouse with phone numbers of alumni and clients who i had the blessing to be with. i created a support system there, and till this day i keep in touch for support. i want to truly thank the lighthouse treatment center and the entire staff. i want to thank my heart and soul maria who has been there for me before, during (visits) and after my treatment. i dedicate my treatment and sobriety to mi ama who always wanted me to give up drinking for the longest time, i know she's watching me from up above and is proud of me. i'm doing it ama te quiero muncho! i attend meetings during the week, and i also attend outpatient therapy. i reunited with my highpower in the catholic faith and i constantly communicate with my support. my relationship with my sons is amazing! i have two of my sons living with me now and i see my youngest every weekend. i'm coming up on seven months of sobriety on 12-14-17. thank you again lighthouse you have saved my life ! #lighthousetreatmentcenter#meetouralumni#recoveryispossible#sobrietyisworthit#sobriety#sober#soberlife#soberissexy#recovery#addictionhelp#addiction#addictionkills#overcome#youcandoit#nevergiveup#inspiration
for if an alcoholic failed to perfect and enlarge his spiritual life through work and self-sacrifice for others, he could not survive the certain trials and low spots ahead. if he did not work, he would surely drink again, and if he drank, he would surely die. then faith would be dead indeed. with us it is just like that.
