I relapsed last night. So sick this morning. My first day out of the sober living and back sleeping in the car and my brain says its party time. Now the last mask i have stinks like vomit. But I'm not gonna let it get me down. There were no cops or handcuffs involved last night so there's nothing stopping me from picking my nasty pukey self up and move on to the next town next state next chapter etc 🙃 but I'm still so fucking tired. Its like Lord of the Rings everyday for me it just keeps going. 😓
Remember this; A relapse doesn’t mean that you haven’t made any progress or challenged yourself. It doesn’t mean that you’re still the same as you were before you started working on yourself. Most importantly, it doesn’t mean all of the hard work you put into healing yourself was wasted. Relapse(s) are part of recovery. Being able to fall down after climbing a mountain so high, and then to begin climbing again - that is true strength. Knowing that even if you do fall, you won’t be falling all the way to rock bottom again, and having it in you to get back up again shows how strong you are. Give yourself credit for that. ♥️
Thank you for this...its something I always try to remind myself when this stuff happens but its hard to not feel ashamed. Shame has been a bad habit of mine my whole life. But one important thing I learned from this is that a sober living home really helps. It just sux because those places are always full of insane angry criminals and sex offenders 😔 the last house I lived was stressful because of all the screaming and insanity
It's just a little slip in a Mountain to climb. . Stay strong you can do it
You got out of sober living last night, and relapsed immediately?
