To help Queens rebuild their lives by healing the past pain mask by alcohol abuse and regain their crowns as QUEENS, To Live Purpose, Fulfillment and control over their own life the way God has always intended it to be.
I took my first drink at 23 years old and I was hooked. Born and raised in Brooklyn, I was the girl who always look good on the outside. I had all the name brand clothing that I use as my way to feel good, yet I battled with low self-esteem for many years. Alcohol gave me the courage to do and say things I would have never done otherwise (or least that’s what I thought at the time).
Every event held inside or outside of my home alcohol was there. It never mattered the occasion good or bad alcohol was always an invited guest. Because of the feeling it gave me I used and abused alcohol for a lot of my adult life. I had a great job making great money, yet I was the women who still never felt good enough unless I was drinking. My circles of friends were all individuals who drank and abused alcohol because that was my understanding of “fun” and acceptance as I knew it.
During my own struggles with alcohol, I could not see how much my life was increasingly spiraling out of control. Whenever difficulties would arise in my life I would turn to the reliable liquid courage to mask my pain and or drown out my sorrows.
Finally after getting sick and tired of the way alcohol was abusing me, I took a different approach. I decided to take EVERYTHING to God. I honestly expressed, “This substance is going to KILL ME. I cannot escape it on my own. I need you to help me. Take the taste out of my mouth, my heart and even out of my mind.”
In the beginning of 2014 he granted my request and removed the desire of alcohol from me. Not only did God deliver me from my struggle of alcohol he also, told me to start my business.
Today, my life is quite different from my life before alcohol abuse. My decisions are better, my health is much better because I stop making excuses and began making adjustments and doing the work. I got tired of self-destructing, being used by people and compromising my standards. I got tired of losing, hurting myself and allowing others to hurt me. I got tired of the hangovers, broken promises to myself and God (you know the ones we all have made). I did something about it. I took back my power and began listening to that small still voice of God and allowed him to heal and empower me. I got sober!
