Surprisingly enough, I’ve been having an absolute blast. I’ve been having a lot of fun and it’s nice to wake up in the morning with a clear mind and energy and just wanting to get out there and try new things. I’m enjoying getting out of bed. SCHC was very accommodating when it came to my passion (golf) and felt that it would be a huge part in my recovery. That was huge for me. It allowed me to want to try and now I’m excited for group and doing the hard work that I need to do in order to sober up.
