I am an alcoholic. I didn’t have a problem with drugs. I didn’t do them. I drank and that was enough to get me to my bottom. Until I saw a bag of pot.
I have taken the time to reflect on the habits that weigh me down. These are six ways I hope to finally let them go.
For me, anything can be a trigger, yet the holidays can almost always guarantee thoughts intruding my mind.
When I got sober, I had zero aspirations beyond wanting to stay alive and keep my son. Thankfully, the longer I stayed in recovery, the bigger my world got. And now I want MORE!
I want to give everyone this beautiful gift of a new happy life. I want to be able to bottle up the hope and love that I have found, and tell them “you too, can have this.” But I can’t.
