Thought I would share this pic …the beauty just caught my eye…!!
Today’s class was very refreshing ,as participation was at a high. I congratulate the counselor for an excellent job bringing thoughts and feelings of everyone out into the open. Our combined feelings and thoughts on specific subjects taught all a few things, as one class member mimicked my own situation. These thoughts have made me think about the situation I have with the financial worries compounded by abstinence of drugs , cigarettes and it does bring some relief . I’m not fooled , as these feelings will return from day-to-day , however this was a positive group meeting because of the relief I felt. I do however have mixed feelings on the way others are struggling with the addiction they have compared to mine. I do feel some are dragging out there addiction in the way they chose to recover, however on the other hand everyone’s different. When I think of this, I think maybe I am going to fast and should slow down , however on the other hand this is now working for me . The big question is how long will this work, am I getting to confident to the recovery…? Can someone be too confident..? Should I worry about medication and how I would feel without it…? These are a couple of questions that invade my thoughts daily.
Sometimes I feel that people have preconceived notions on drug addictions and alcoholism. When I talk to some people it seems they don’t hear what I’m saying , as they already have a premeditated answer that comes in any text-book on the subject. I sometimes long just to have someone listen to my problems genuinely without judgement. I do have a few friends like this and one that lives close , as I haven’t taken advantage of the wisdom of this friend. That’s where the financial thing comes into play , again trouble getting around. So there are other things at play here just as much as the recovery from drugs . Thank you for the support.
