Hi, my name is Jill and I am an Alcoholic.
It’s a really hard sentence to type, speak or even admit in your own head. But it is a statement that I have identified with for over ten years. Over time it gets a little easier to say, yet there is always a lump in my throat when the words leave my lips. I prefer to say “I’m Jill & I’m in Recovery”, I really like the way that sounds. But honestly, they both mean the same. I will always be an alcoholic until the day that I die and by the grace of God I hope that I will still be in recovery when I take my last breath.
