March of this year was the beginning of the end for me. My father was diagnosed with cancer in early March. My grandfather, whom I was very close with, died mid-March, my grandmother had brain surgery, and my divorce was final, via mediation on March 25th of this year. All of these events sprung me into my worse stint of drinking ever. I had to drink in the morning to stop the shakes. I would have a couple at noon, then after work drink until I passed out. This went on for nearly a month until I drove myself, and checked in at Fairbanks again on April 25th. I blew a .26 BAC.
I realize now that I was very lucky I was never arrested, killed, or hurt anyone. I drove drunk all the time. I knew this time in rehab it had to, and would be different. I came because I wanted to, not because I was told to. So here we are now, and I start the next chapter of my life. Soberlink has helped me get my life on track, and regain the trust of my ex-wife. It has also helped me rekindle my relationship with my kids.
