  • I Knew It Was Time to Change
    I do this one day at a time and sooner rather than later- you will have some time sober. Love yourself and be gooder than yesterday!

    Before recovery, I was broken in every which way. What made me realize I had a huge problem was when my family didn’t want to be around me anymore. From drinking all day and night, to landing in the ER multiple times and missing work, I knew it was time to get help. I knew […]

  • The Moment I Quit Drinking, I Was Born Again

    I wasn’t my true self. People lost trust and respect for me. I lied to cover up my addiction. I stole money for my next drink. I carried bottles of hard liquor in my purse so I could have enough to drink, but it was never enough. I was homeless. I lost my apartment because […]

  • My Life Changed Overnight

    My name is Keith and this October I will be seven years sober. My life before recovery consisted of me drinking all night and trying to have enough alcohol to last me until the liquor store opened at 8 a.m. the next morning. The turning point for my addiction was when I started hearing the voice of my […]

The project looked at Alaska’s history with alcohol, the system of care for alcohol abusers, how that system might be improved and underage drinking and what’s being done about it.
