Imagine waking up after barely sleeping the night before, and helplessly watching addiction ruin your life. For me, that addiction was alcohol and it controlled every hour of my uncertain life.
While the days were difficult, the nights were the darkest. At times, the only “home” I had was a car, storage unit, or a friend’s couch. Without a safe place of my own, I never felt comfortable enough to let my guard down and sleep.
But things started to look brighter when I came to ShareHouse. For the first time, I had a warm bed, clean sheets and a comfortable pillow. To some this may seem insignificant, but to me it was a sign of support, a fresh start, and the confidence for a clean future. Now I’m learning how I can overcome my addiction and I am excited about the new path I’ve started.
