Addicted No More


I reached my one year of sobriety August 14th but that doesn’t mean that it’s still not a struggle. Sometimes I dream of using and when I awake I have a feeling of guilt that threatens to cloud my whole day. What I have learned to do is to make a list of my blessings and take a moment to reflect on them and thank God for bringing me this far. I know he is there holding my hand as I walk thru each day and have faith in the love that heals and sustains me. One day at a time is all we can do and the worst self defeating action is to keep it all inside where it builds up like a boil until it eventually blows. So remind yourself that you are loved and part of love is trust so you need to trust your support group and don’t be afraid to ask for their help. Let them know your having an extra hard day and let them be there for you as you in turn would do the same for them!


About gypsimoone

I am a writer, mother, daughter, sister, and among many other things a friend! I have lived through the deaths of my mother and brother along with many other friends and loved ones and hope that my experiences and lessons learned can help others as many helped me. Thru this blog I will tell my story and allow others into my once highly guarded universe so that they can hopefully gain strength to carry on and share their own stories so they in turn can enlighten others and pay it forward...just a tiny bit of kindness can go a very long way!
