Recovering Alcoholic in need of some help
Organized by: Matthew Irons
Hi Everyone, The reason I started this is to get my life back together. I am an alcoholic. My last drink was 2/8/2016. I've gone through detox and rehab. I am currently going to AA and outpatient treatment.
The reason that I need money is that due to my drinking I received a DUI and lost my job. Ironically, I got the DUI is because I did not want to drink and drive. I knew I had had to much to safely drive, so instead I slept in my car. I got charged for DUI because I had the ignition on for heat. At the time it seemed like a good idea.
Because I was fired I am not eligible for unemployment. I'm am actively looking for any job that I can get, but it is difficult not having a license for the next 6 months.
I am just looking to be able to keep my apt. and car till I can get back on my feet. I also have a 5 year old son that I pay child support.
Once I am back on my feet I will donate the rest of the donations I recieve to a similar cause, and will contribute personally in the future when possible.
Pay it forward
Thank you Matt
