Drinking started as a social means to popularity. Soon after, it had escalated into binge drinking while using substances daily to cope with my anxiety/insecurities. I had done anything necessary to feed my addiction. The lowest point was taking off my mask to unveil the monster that I created. With no self-worth, confidence, or morals- my outlook on life became reckless and destructive. Addiction had become the only way to aid the illusion of false confidence, and cheat a “normal” life.
I am nearing 4 years of sobriety. I live in British Columbia with my loving fiancé and our two boys. I am surrounded by family and close friends. I enjoy spending my time at the gym, being with my family, and adventuring out into the wilderness.
