What Are You Talking About
Addicts Addicts Addicts. I'm surrounded by addicts and I'm an addict myself. But these people don't do anything but talk just to hear the sound of their voices. We all go to the same classes, groups, and meetings. All I hear is people complaining about other people. I don't know but I'm willing to bet on the fact that no one is in here because of what somebody else was doing. We're hear because of our own behaviors and actions. All I hear is that if I were in the "Real World" and this happened I would us. I don't know what I'm going to do when I get out of rehab. This really pisses me off. We all go to the same classes day after day. We all know there is a process to relapsing it doesn't just happen. Drugs don't just fall out of the sky into our hands and mouths. It's a process, we have to think about using, go and actually buy the drug, prepare the drug, then use the drug. Now that's at least 30 minutes and 4 or 5 opportunities to say "stop what am I doing" or to call someone. We always have a choice we don't have to use we just have to change our way of thinking and our behaviors. And when we get out of rehab were going to work our recovery plan and stay clean. So please stop being negative and start sharing positive thoughts. Like saying to yourself "I know how to stay sober, I know what to do if a problem presents itself, and no matter what happens I have a skill I learned in rehab to deal with any situation."
