Sharing the Story
Blog post by: Alumni Relations Specialist
Why do we share our stories? What is the point? Some may think it’s because we like to hear ourselves talk. Yet there is only one way to truly know if you are an alcoholic, and that is by hearing your story come from the lips of another. What a shocking surprise it is when we realize we are not alone and that we are not the only ones that did that, said that, felt that. When we are ready for help, that is when we will hear for the first time, that although we feel broken and ashamed, we are not alone. With the help of those who have found recovery, we too can tuck the past away, bringing it out only when it will help the next alcoholic to find their way to the freedom we have found.
