Twenty Four Hours

In exactly two hours, I will have been awake for 24 hours. Physical pain and nothing more is keeping me awake. I fear losing control. At some point, I will pass out out of pure exhaustion. I sit here in bed focusing on the pain. It’s deep. It’s constant. Pain let’s me know that I still can feel. Letting go of an addiction is like letting go of a lover gone bad. It hurts to let go of forbidden pleasure. That drink that hides the truth of emotional hurt. The drugs that cloud your mind until you have lost touch with reality. We are all hurting in so many different ways. Life is never fair. But there are always lessons to be learned. Try not to dwell on the past. Live for today in total surrender. Cherish each day as one more day being clean. Listen to the following song…….Let each word sink in on your journey of recovery.
