Sober and the City
I’m a 25-year-old young professional living in Manhattan. I also happen to be sober. I’ve been without alcohol (and other mood or mind-altering substances) since July 30, 2007. Why, you might ask, did I get sober at the age of 21? Truth is, my junior year in college I had a serious drug problem and needed to find a way to stop for good. And how, might you ask, was I able to get sober at 21? With the help of two twelve step programs: NA and AA. After getting clean in the south, I graduated from college and moved to my favorite city in the world: New York City.
