For over 10 years, I struggled with alcohol addiction. Every day woke up, I would say that “today is my last day to take alcohol” However, the next morning, I would find myself taking one, two, and then several beers till I was not myself. After my first visit to a Chicago suburbs counseling center, it is when I realized that my life was in total mess. The counselors examined my alcohol addiction problem and decided to put me on a special treatment plan. Today I am free from alcohol use.
