My journey in recovery has not been all fun and games. Getting sober from drugs is hard, period. I’ve learned a lot. Sometimes through meetings, people, and books other times the hard way. I’ve gotten into a relationship which was warned against me but I think I finally found the right person. It has been a roller coaster these past few months learning how to trust, grow, and love one another.
I’ve taken some time to get some professional help and have enlisted some great people at Florida Recovery Center. Right now I’m in a halfway house in Delray Beach, which has really enabled me to focus on what is important: staying sober. Some might say that it is the weak thing to do or it is going “backwards” by asking for help at a treatment center when you are already sober, but times are tough.
Not only have I struggled with addiction but I’ve struggled with depression as well, and now am realizing I also have very bad anxiety that I never noticed due to self medication. I’ve thought about just using marijuana, but that never works. This blog does help a lot, but I can only write so much. Thanks for reading.
