My name is Michael. You may know me as Readykilowatt from the I Am Sober app. I took my first drink around the age of 14 and after 24 years of drinking, it was time to make a change. I had short stints of sobriety here and there, always knowing deep down that there was a serious problem but never brave enough to truly face the demons. That is until something snapped in me on 1/18/2021, the day I took my last drink. Since that day I knew that alcohol could never be an option again. Years of battling depression and anxiety took its toll on me. Self medicating with the very substance that was causing most of my problems. It really came down to life or death. I chose life.
