Ex-Alcoholic Still in Recovery

Ex-Alcoholic Still in Recovery

Hi, My name is Lucian Wilhite Jr. I started drinking at an early age. Alcohol was a big problem in my life. when I turned seventeen I killed a man. If I had'nt been drinking I don't think I could do what I did all those years ago. I served my time but as soon as I got out I was back with my old friend the bottle. Could'nt nobody tell me nothing. I wish i had listen to my mother who constantly told me I needed to quit drinking. I thought I knew it all. But as the all I did was look for that next drink. I could'nt hold down a decent job. Just worked long enough to get that next drink. I lived off of my family. As I look back I know what a burden I was. But one day I got up I looked in the mirror I said to myself there's got to be something better than just staying drunk. So I turned to God I ask god to help me to get myself straight. But before I could I lost my mom and that really made me determined to quit drinking. I just wished my mom was alive to see my accomplishments. I quit drinking in 1993. I go to church every week. I sing in two choirs Men's and regular choirs.I'm disabled right now,but I have no desire to go back to where it took me so long to come from. I don't drink but i'm still in recovery.I hope my story helps someone else.God will help you all you have to do is ask. Good luck to you all.
