How did you get into it? I started at 14 with friends, during parties, because it was fun. I grew up in a beach town, so it was a norm to drink.

I lived with my parents and my sister. My mother neglected me for as long as I can remember. She favored my sister and I never knew why she did not like me. There were times as a pre-teen where she would kick me out of the house and I had to spend the night at my grandma’s house.
Hello my name is Carlotta and I want to share my story on when I started drinking alcohol. I started when I was 14 years old and it was when I invited some friends over.

As I sit here reflecting on my story, a calendar on my desk indicates that I have been sober 2,105 days. Time in sobriety has gone by so fast.
