I’ve been clean and sober for 1557 days. Sometimes I lose track, yet occasionally all I can do is count the seconds.
I got sober alone. No 12-step program. No sober friends. Alcohol all around me. Alone.

The first time I guzzled alcohol, I was seven years old. My mom left me with her glass of sauvignon blanc when she went to use the restroom.
