Dear Younger Me Not In Recovery

Dear younger me: Don’t be so quick to get into the in crowd. One day you’ll be all by yourself. Don’t  be so quick to cover up your pain. Pain is a good thing. It means you’re still breathing. Don’t take that first toke. It will smell like skunk in the future. Addiction stinks. You’ll be caught up in a whirlwind of despair. You will be left wondering……Where can I get my next fix. Don’t follow the crowd. Be yourself. Trust your instincts. Addiction will never get you anywhere. Someday you will have a future. But first you have to let go of your past. There is nothing better than recovery. It will bring you peace of mind. No worries of how you are going to make the rent or juggle your budget. Nobody said it would be easy. Letting go and living in the here and now. Now that you started something……..Learn to say NO! Begin again. Get the help you need before it is too late. The truth lies within the Twelve Steps and Celebrate Recovery. Dear younger self: forgive, forget, and live one day at a time.
