Im getting sober again

How long to avoid your addiction when you are in treatment?

Avoiding your addiction when you are in treatment can at times be more difficult then ever imagined. Addiction is more than just having a substance abuse problem. Addiction comes with people and the memories that you begin associate the addiction over time. As a result you end up hating yourself while being upset with others because you are too blind with rage to notice that you hold the key to your own success.

Getting SoberIf I feel that I need to be a consumer of the drugs I despise every time I am around a certain person then I left with really only two options. Either confronting that person or my own personal favorite, cutting them off completely. Though I write that last line unwillingly as it makes me hate what I have to do in order to remain sober. I say that cutting friends off is a personal favorite but that is only because I have need to. I have tried to becoming sober before and I relapsed because of an old friend that I used to know.

Since then I have vowed to never change my date again. I do not never want to be the person I once was, he ruined my life. Even on my best of days I cannot escape the dark thoughts that rest on the foreground of my mind. One day I will happy with all of my decisions, but until then I just need to find the middle ground by sharing my thoughts and experiences with substance abuse.  I say this a lot but I do really mean it, “I’m getting sober again.” Hopeful this time for good.
