Good afternoon! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. Wow, it has been a while. But I am still alive and sober! Just checking in and saw this quote and wanted to share it, as many people might be starting over since it is a new year. Just remember not to focus of what you are getting rid of, your baggage, the quitting of the drinking or whatever. Focus on the new you are building now. When I got sober I remember from treatment, I was told to find new hobbies, to start doing things that I used to love, again. You can't just stop doing something, it needs to be replaced by something, and when you stop doing something negative, it needs to be replaced by something positive. And with that you can build something amazing. It might take a while to build, and it may take a few tries, but as long as there is progress, you are headed in the right direction. And you don't have to do it alone. God is there to help. You just need to ask. That's all I have for today. Have a great day!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
