Re: Need your help
Another day behind you. Day at a time, moment at a time.
John Wayne said one time the "Courage is being scared to death and saddling up anyway." That's a good thought for you right now. I know you are scared.... withdrawal was the scariest, prolonged and fearful time in my life. We have to dig deep to find the courage to keep plodding along with the knowledge that we can survive it and that a better life is waiting for us at the end of it. We have to saddle up.
The guilt must be turned around in the thinking. Yes, yes, of course we all feel like idiots in this situation! However, change that thought from it being a hinderance into the thought that we are working to make our life different, better, drug free. Pump the self up and motivate the self knowing that all the effort put into withdrawing and finding true recovery and restoration is a worthwhile and good thing. Our lives are better lives in the end and that makes for better lives for all we interact with.
Stay strong, Sweetpea. Come and post, share it all and let the board walk alongside you.
