Good afternoon! My name is Lauren, and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. Acceptance is always a hard thing to deal with. It's a hard thing to actually do, in anything. We can talk about it, and say we are going to do it, but when the rubber hits the road, actually following through with it, it very hard. Actually accepting something, or evening making the decision to change it if you can is hard to, and leaving it is hard as well. This can go for a relationship, or a job, or drugs or alcohol. It sounds all good when we say the words, but action is a whole nother ballgame. And even differentiating if it is something we can or cannot or WANT to change is a difficult thing. But these are things we have to do, things we not only have to do for our sanity, but for our livelyhood. Just know that no matter what decision you are making, you are not alone. There are people out there you can talk to about it to. Family, friends, a spnosor, a pastor, me. There is always someome. Remember you are not alone on this journey. That's all I ahve for today. Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
