Welcome to our archive. Because we get so many submissions, it makes it easier for you to find and read stories you resonate with by archiving them this way.
Many have taken the time and trouble to share the hard-hitting impact a life of alcoholism and/or drug addiction has had on their lives. Some stories have been shared by those in the middle of their struggle with alcohol or drugs, others by concerned and often helpless loved one's, and in between the occassional story of triumph in attesting how a life of addiction has been overcome has also been shared.
It takes a lot of courage to bare one's soul in the way all those have shared, have done. So Thank You! If you're reading this, something has led you here, so take the time to read the stories below that you most resonate with.
Because we can all learn from each other, and knowing you're not alone in the fight against addiction, will give you the strength to keep going. That's why we ask you to please take the time to leave an encouraging comment whenever you can.
If you've read a story and feel inspired to go on and share yours, please go to the main Addiction and Alcoholism Stories Page to do so. It's very easy - all you literally need to do is start typing.
Even if you just take one piece of information from the stories you've read that can help you on your journey, it will have been worth it. So take your time. Some stories will shock you, others want to make you cry, and some will inspire you.
But no doubt you'll always learn something, and the more you learn, the more empowered you'll be to take positive and life-changing action. So whatever you do, never give up!
