    This was very inspiring to me. I am 20 years old and will have 2 years sober next month on December 12. These stories help me stay grounded. Sobriety is hard for anyone, but especially when you are young and realize that your partying days are over when they shouldn't have even begun yet. I will be 21 years old this summer and it's definitely difficult to think about.

    Very enlightening story! At 52years old with over 3 years of sobriety I can still relate to the comments about feeling that I did not belong but trying so hard to belong somewhere. You are a very courageous young woman. God Bless One day at a time.
