You Are Not Alone! – Jacob_Aug2017

My name is Jacob, and I’m an alcoholic. I am 22 years old and this is my second time in prison. I get back out in a few days, and at this time in my life I can’t even express how grateful I am that there will be an AA meeting to go to when I get out. Drugs are a hug part of my story. I started using marijuana when I was 12 and alcohol followed soon after. Since that time, I have tried every drug I can think of and done just about everything you can think of. I caught my first felony at 15, my first charge ever at 12. I was put in States Custody as a kid. I’ve been in proctor homes, sober livings, and half way houses, on parole and probation. When they say jails, institutions and death, I pull 2 out of 3 of those. I say this because I want people to know that they are not alone. I always thought I was alone and this disease will allow me to feel alone in a room full of people. Alcohol and drugs used to make me feel like I wasn’t alone. Today it does not and I am grateful for that. My sobriety date is June 1st, 2017. My release date is August 1st, 2017. You are not alone! -Jacob
