Starting again. One step out of hell again. Sad. Nervious. I need peace of mind. Help me please.
Welcome back. First things, glad you found your way back. The important thing to remember is that it’s not important how many times you fall, it’s how many times you get back up. Do you have a sponsor or trusted sober friend to take you to a meeting? It always helps to go with someone if you’re nervous. Have you put any thought into what lead you back out? What can you change? Have you thought of reaching out to addiction counseling or rehab? Just trying to throw some thoughts out there. I hope I’m not overwhelming you! Remember you can always reach out on here as well!!
Dude, today may be shit. It may be shit until you fall asleep tonight.
But in the morning, not only will you feel a bit better, you will DO a bit better. This dark moment will pass.
A word of wisdom that i carry with me always:
“We all get served a shit sandwich. It is up to you what toppings you put on it.”
Basically, starting today, you choose. Are you going to garnish your sandwich with more crap? Or are you going to garnish it with truffles and gold leaf and make your life the most glorious sandwich youve ever seen?
You will do better tomorrow, i know you will!
Welcome back @Andrew3.
You were missed @Andrew3. Nice to see you back. I have had seversl restarts the past little while as well. Yet still come back and keep trying. Thankful for that. Blessings and strength sent to you.
You are back. That is aweaome.
You can do it!! You were on a good path!! Keep your head up!!
The next day is always filled with depression and disappointment. What you feel is normal and only temporary. Time heals. Be gentle on yourself but commit to doing something differently.
One of the best i have read or heard in a long time!
Glad to have you back here Andrew!!
You have done it before, so you can do it now!
Is today your day 1? Just sit the day out. Be gentle to yourself, drink a lot of water. Maybe going for a walk in nature to distract yourself? Early to bed to get some extra energy?
When it’s hard come here and vent, we are here for you!
