Organized by: Shena Mayes-reed
EVENT DATE Jul 04, 2016
My name is Shena mayes and I am an alcoholic. I have come to terms with it and honestly I'm. Not even happy to have to the reality of it. I was recently in treatment July 24, 2015 and that was the best decision I had ever made in my life,admiring that there is a problem and doing something was big for me so I went .I felt so good to be sober but exactly 6 months later I started back drinking.and it was no one's fault but my own but I felt like I could dink like a gentleman (as said in the AA big book). But I can't there is no such thing for a person with my disease there is no cure. The things in my treatment center I learned but I was more fouced on a quick fix, which there is none I didn't take the time I needed so now I want No I need to go back but the thing that stops and puts me at a stand still is bills rent for the 3 months that I truly need to get the tools that I need I'm ready I'm trying.but the stress of paying bills at home and trying to get better are the reaskn s I rushed my treatment before I don't want to stress like before in treatment I plan to go late June all the money raised will be in my sister's or mothers hands so that things get done right. I really appreciate your time and thank you in advance even if it's just to read my story I appreciate your time money words of encouragement.
