Lesson 13, Healthy Recovery Patterns

My early recovery (on going) I feel a sense of relief that my past behaviour is, if not understood but is now in the open is up for discussion if it arises. I have also which I had already guessed much earlier that big parts of my life, both as a child and in my teens have contributed towards this addiction. Thankfully it has not distracted me or overwhelmed me but saddened me, but it has made me more determined.

Middle Recovery. I have indeed struggled with certain immoral behaviours but I am focused on what I am doing now to change this and no matter what, I realise the past cannot be changed only the here and now. I also do try to make the right decisions, now that my head is not as messed up. Another positive which was done 4 months ago was to destroy or delete everything that was part of my addiction, yes a few weeks later I regretted this but then thought it was the right thing to do and the only way forward. My thoughts on this now, well it is tough but slowly carefully I feel I am getting somewhere. I am no longer afraid that some lie or indiscretion is going to "come out" I feel more at peace with myself too.

do you remember saying
I feel I am getting somewhere.

I do hope that this is still true but if it is for sure it is not too evident in the forum, posts have been infrequent to say the least
that is OK , it is your life your choice your decision
if you need the community help and support it is there
if not OK
but if you do post hit the reply not the new topic key as this keeps your posts in one thread
hope to hear from you again soon

Remember recovery is more than abstinence
Every transition begins with an ending
Do not confuse happiness with seeking pleasure
stay healthy keep safe
Coach Kenzo
