“I’m experiencing a lot of emotions that I suppressed for a long time. It comes in waves of joy and days of depression. I’m able to work through these emotions. I feel a lot more connected to my family because I’m present. I’m not hiding stuff or living this double life. I also feel excited by the possibilities as far as finding a new job and having new friendships. There is so much to grow from. I got sober in 2017. I had three years, but I relapsed when COVID hit. It seems like I picked up where I left off. Things got progressively worst. It was a really low bottom for me. Having that relapsed showed me that I do have a disease of addiction. It is cunning and baffling. I went to rehab, and it changed my life. I feel a connection to a Higher Power that I never felt before. I also have this love for people that I didn’t have before. Now my goal is to work in recover. I’m starting school in August to become a drug and alcohol counselor.”

“I have my sober crew that I hang out with. I have my friends Ramon, Charlie and Leo who are sober, and then there’s my very best friend, she’s a normie. We’re good. I’m more honest with my friends. I try to be the best that I can be. I try to be there for them. It’s amazing. I’m more authentic than ever. Before sobriety, I lied. I wasn’t present enough for them. My best friend told me it was hard for her. It was like talking to a dry wall. I wasn’t really there for her and I didn’t care for her. We had a lot of fallouts. I think it’s important to have sober friends. I need someone to understand me. My best friend gets me, but she doesn’t always get me because she doesn’t speak our language. I need people to understand what I’m going through and that I’m trying to stay sober. I need that connection.”
—Ayanna Kapri, sober since January 9, 2018.

“The past year has all been about having faith. That’s it. It is what it is. On the one hand, my work world was not affected by Covid. I didn’t get furloughed. I came to work every day, so I lived with purpose. I rarely go out anyway. On the other hand, 2020/21 had its challenges. My mother died in January, I had to move in March, my car engine died, I got Covid, and I had a stroke, so it’s been about having faith and having an overwhelming sense that I’m going to be taken care of. At this point I look forward to going to actual in-person meetings.”
—Robby Mason, sober since August 9, 1999.
