Trigger Warning: Abuse, Alcoholism
Hello, my name is Wade Pierce and I'm an Alcoholic. Today marks the third year that I've been sober, and I'd like to thank everyone here for helping me remain alcohol-free. I appreciate the late nights and phone calls that lasted for hours. I remember how bad things were getting, until I was forced to show up to Alcoholic's Anonymous by the court.
I resorted to alcohol, depending on the inebriation to fill the void that had been caused by a previous ex-boyfriend. We had gotten together during college, and I managed to survive with him, dealing with the constant abuse that he would cause. He didn't just use his words, he used his hands to assert his dominance. He wasn't happy that I had graduated wanted to pursue Pokemon Research, not wanting me to leave the apartment that we had rented together in Castelia City.
He made it hard to go out and do my job as a Researcher. I didn't want to go out and face the world with black eyes and the occasional broken bones. I resorted to Alcohol, the one thing that managed to make everything seem alright. Luckily, my ex just randomly left one day and never came back. But, I continued to drink alcohol as if it was water.
Every meal every day was paired with alcohol. I was constantly drunk, until I had ran into trouble with the law. I had been arrested for public intoxication and destruction of property. To be honest, I had a mental breakdown after everything, and I had found out where my ex-boyfriend was living with his new boytoy. I just began to smash into any and everything outside of their house.
I was only 25 during the whole time this had occurred. I was only supposed to attend AA meetings for a year. But, I met this really handsome guy with a troubled past. It all started out with the question "Do you want something to drink? I have beer, wine, liquor." I was upfront about only being a few months sober. I never heard from him again, and I never understood why.
During this time, my father had passed away. I didn't think that I could handle the whole thing on my own. I relapsed, and began to drink heavily again until my sponsor had caught on and made it their job to keep an eye on me. He insisted that I move in with him so that he could always be there.
Without him, I wouldn't be standing here before you to tell my story. I'm so much happier, and so much stronger than I was all those years ago. I thank my sponsor for always being there for me, and pushing me to better myself so that I wouldn't fall into the same sea of bad decisions that I had made when ever life gets tougher.
I've had my pokemon to lean on, as I wanted to get better for them too. I still can't thank everyone enough here in AA for letting my vent and giving my advice. You guys are real rock stars.
