So I got a drunk dial from some old and close friends tonight. It wasn’t a trigger or anything and was actually great to talk with them. But it’s the first time I’ve outright told any close friends from my old life that I’m actively working a program in recovery rather than just not drinking. Despite always being nervous about being judged I always knew this day would come. Well not surprisingly it went incredibly well and they were happy for me.
Point of this little ramble is that I know some of us struggle about how to tell people. I just want to tell you guys be proud of what you’re doing. You don’t have to rush out and buy a recovery bumper sticker for your car, but we don’t have to hide in the shadows either.
