Adulting is hard and there’s a lot of pressure to be “perfect” – especially after having achieved long-term sobriety.
My life has crashed…and I can’t turn to using drugs or alcohol. So I’ve turned to my old friend. Sex. And I’m beginning to wonder if I’m still “using.”
You already have everything you need to be successful in your recovery. You are showing up and doing the work.
There were casualties at the end of my last relationship. My will to get into another relationship was among them.
Finding that I had the freedom to choose whether or not to have sex was a revalation to me after I got sober. I’d never felt like I had the choice before.
