This is my Alcohol Story: Ashley & Brian (Part 1 of 4)

POSTED ON: 04/08/2021

Alcohol plays a role in the lives of many people. For most of us alcohol is no big deal. We love a margarita with dinner or occasional drinks with friends, but we can't really say it affects our life much on a regular basis. But that's not true for everyone.

Ashley & Brian's Story

Ashley and Brian started dating during what both considered a very fun stage of life. They both enjoyed alcohol, partying, and even recreational drug use. It was all just for fun, just two people old enough to make their own decisions but young enough to not have too many responsibilities getting in the way. Then everything changed.

A Test They Weren't Prepared For

From the time Ashley took a pregnancy test when she was 24 years old, everything in her life changed. It wasn't an immediate or easy change, Ashley acknowledges that she wasn't ready for a baby and had lots of doubts about whether she could handle being a mom at that point in her life. After a lot of soul searching and praying for guidance, she chose her child. Ashley gives credit to her first pregnancy for getting her sober and keeping her on a better path. Ashley stopped using alcohol and drugs and tried her best to get ready for the next stage in her life. Despite the rough start to the pregnancy, the baby was born happy and healthy 16 years ago.

Stopping wasn't as easy for him

Ashley says she wasn't an addict. She admits to using drugs and alcohol recreationally, but she doesn't feel like they held her life hostage. She never stole to get drugs. She could party with friends for a few days over the weekend then return to a more responsible life. Brian has a much different story. We'll share his story of addiction and struggle in the post next week.
