My life today in recovery far exceeds any expectations I ever had of life before. I am a Great Falls, MT native. My addiction and alcoholism didn’t really blossom until I was about 21 years old. For 20 years I was either drunk or for the last 10 years high on meth. My bottom came at the end of 2019 when my wife and daughters went to go live with her Mom. I was living, one might say, solely to use. In January 2020, I went to treatment and have been on the road of recovery since. I changed one thing… and that was EVERYTHING. People, places, and activities. Today I surround myself with sober people, sober activities, and a sober occupation. I can also say that in this short time, my relationship with my daughters is restored and I am the happiest I have ever been in my life.
