Compulsive behavior or thoughts

Hi, I relapsed today unfortunately! But I keep going and try to learn from each relapse.

I find out that I have Compulsive behavior or thoughts that lead me to relapse! I don’t want it but it’s if someone is chains me and there is no way back. But I rely but rely are finished with it.
And when I have the narcotic in my house, I lose!

Does anyone relate and do you have any suggestions to counter them?

Thanks for reading and your advice!

Keep going strong! May God lead and heal us to be come free from any addiction forever!

Can you get rid of all the narcotics in your house? And not allow more?

And it sounds like you find meetings really helpful, so go to as many as you can.

Have all narcotics removed from your home and ban them. You deserve a safe place to recover. Meetings, sponsorship and the hard work required have helped me tremendously in my journey, I hope the same for you.
