20 years in relapse and want recovery again.
« on: February 05, 2017, 05:22:47 PM »
My mind is messing me with me telling me why its not possible to get my sobriety back. 
1. My spouse uses
2. I'll have to tell my grown son the truth about my addiction.

Sorry didn't mean to click post yet.  Anyway I'm overwhelming myself.  The thing I need to do right now is just concentrate on not using, when I start overthinking things right?

hi you r right about focusing on just staying clean for today  are steps are written in order for a reason if you r not going to local meetings I suggest you do so and get phone numbers and a sponsor
recovery offers us the promise of freedom from active addiction but to get that promise takes effort on our part

I know this is an old post, but I was just wondering how the original poster was doing.
Recovery REALLY is on a day by day basis.  I am now learning that.
Anyway, I hope the poster is doing well in recovery.
