Time is the best healer....
27 days is great.
Stick with it.
People are often wracked with emotions in early days... (guilt, shame, depression etc)
- Why did I do it?
- Why didn't I stop sooner?
- I can never undo the damage I have done...
- What's the point?
That is just your addiction trying to make you feel so bad that you pick up again...
You are beating it and the longer you stay clean the better you will feel and the better your life will become...
"The two most powerful warriors are patience and time."
Learn from the past do not live in it.
The recovery program is a healing process.
I needed to abstain from my addictions obsessions and learn to spend more time doing healthy things.
On walking in to the recovery the person I was then is not the person I am today.
I was not an evil person, I was not an bad person.
I was just a very vulnerable person who would escape people life and situations I could not cope with.
The importance of the recovery program is to keep attending and put more time effort in to my recovery than I put in to my unhealthy habits.
Please do not give up on your self.
Live one day at a time.
