I’m watching your testimony on the Journey home right now. I’ve been sober from alcohol and drugs for 16 years. I became a Catholic from no religion 4 years into sobriety.
Being sober from my addiction to alcohol has afforded me many blessings and graces, including a wonderful marriage that began in recovery and 5 amazing children. I am a college student working towards a degree in Catholic Theology. The best part of being sober is the freedom from despair, self pity, fear, hopelessness, and having an amazing relationship with God and some of his people in recovery and in the Catholic Church. Thank you for your witness.
