‘I have a friend who can get you into rehab.’ He found me on the floor, passed out in vomit. Crying my eyes out I said, ‘Yes please.’: Man 2.5 years sober after decades-long battle with alcoholism

“There was a time when all I wanted was a ‘normal’ life. I didn’t think it was possible to break the cycle I was trapped in. I took one step at a time. I was determined to work as hard as I needed to, take as many steps as necessary to become the man I wanted to be, and now that man is exactly who I am.”

“A speaker came to the rehab. I asked him, ‘I just want to know, why me?’ His answer was simple: ‘Even if you had the answer, it wouldn’t change anything. Don’t spend your time looking for the answer, spend your time on the solution.’ That simple exchange changed my entire outlook. From that day forward, I was only interested in getting well.”
