Long year, Long road

Mary Taneyhill, my friend and customer, helped me get through this.


2017 was not a good year for me. I had a dose of Fentanyl dropped into my drink. I was in a coma from March 1 to March 30 and remained hospitalized until April 19.

God saw me through that. I stayed clean until June, when I started drinking every day until Dec. 11, when I ended up in the emergency room and learned I had pancreatitis, which is a very painful thing.

I finally understand the damage alcohol does to your body. But if you trust in God, he will see you through it all. My faith is strong, but my word to all is that alcohol is the enemy and it will take you out.

Get help if you need it. You can’t do it alone. Ask God to help you stop.

I am hoping for a better 2018. Clean and sober. Living clean and sober is easy: Just don’t pick up any alcohol. Two things I know I’ll be doing this year are attending meetings and going to church.
