I thought a while about these. Now, keep in mind, they do not apply to everyone. Some people may not care about some of these things being said to them, but I think they shouldn’t be said to a recovering alcoholic. I looked back at the last 2 years of my journey in recovery and thought of the things that upset me. Maybe you can relate. If you think of anything, let me know in the comments section.
Every once in a while I remember a certain point in my life, one of my darkest points. There are a few triggers that bring up those memories. I don’t really like thinking about it, but it also serves as a tool to remind me of how close I came to not being able to type this up now. It also reminds me that I had a bigger purpose in life.
There’s always something about the turn into a new year. This last year has been a very difficult year for me, and starting new seems like an amazing concept at this point in my life. I have battled some of my worst demons this year in ways I never thought I would ever have to. The biggest demon of which was my sobriety.
