While making changes in my life I have found many things that I thought wouldn’t have to change ended up being some of the biggest things that needed to be done first. Cutting people out of my life is a big one, I only really talk to a few people now compared to when I was using. It was hard at the beginning but once I sobered up for a while I realized it was the best thing for me moving forward. I know personally I get a lot further and am a lot happier now having only a few people in my life.
Also taking walks and writing has become a big part of my life. I reflect a lot about the past and writing really helped me put in perspective how far I have come. I have figured out that drinking and doing drugs does not work for me. I am at the point now that I don’t really crave it anymore, which is a huge step.
