Good afternoon! My name is Lauren, and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. My husband and I were on a little vacation this past week, and during that time, we met a lot of new people. I also got to share my story with other recovering alcoholic/addicts. It was an amazing experience. One thing I have learned in recovery in that I had to change who I surrounded myself with. And I know that Positive Thoughts=Positive Outcomes, so if I take it one step further and surround myself with positve people and people that uplift me, challenge me, push me and make me happy, that can only help. People that put me down, or enable me, don't let me get anywhere. And at this point, or any opint in my life for that matter, that's not what I need. So I decided to make a few changes. Well, actually, I didn't really do anything. In sobriety, you find out who your real friends are. There are some friends I just haven't talked to just because life gets busy, but some people I just don't even talk to. So you may need to do a little house cleaning, but that is ok. It may be hard in the beginning, but it is worth it in the long run. That's all for today. Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
