After realizing I needed to change for my children, I entered rehab. I remained sober for about two months only to return to the nasty habit. I am now currently two and a half years sober but it took me two more years after that first initial time in rehab to reenter rehab to get clean and stay clean. I think I was successful the second time around because of two reasons. I had already been through rehab once. I knew what to expect and prepared myself mentally for what it was going to entail. Secondly, I entered rehab for myself the second time around. I realized that I needed to get clean for me. Yes, I needed to get clean for my children but in order for me to be a better mother, I needed to feel like I was a better person.
