there is one thing i do not see enough of on this website- support for people trying to get clean and/or stay clean. addiction has ruined my life. addiction has ruined so many lives and recovering alcoholics/addicts NEED support to continue with their recovery. so, for those of you who are working on your first 24 hours or your first week, month, year, your 2nd year or 20th- i am so proud of you. you have given yourself something incredible today. addiction is one of the most insidious diseases in the world, but today, you did not let it win. remind yourself of all of the strength you have. you are a miracle.
I’ll hit 90 days clean again this coming Friday and oh my god I can’t believe it. I might actually break my record (94 days) and things are coming together for me. I’m out of work but I started working out and looking for a job and I’m feeling pretty good right now.
It’s possible y'all. I believe in you and if you ever need help I’m here for you.
Honestly it’s exhausting to face physical and mental pain
without narcotics. I feel so defeated. I’m so fed up with my screwed up sleep
patterns. I desperately wish I could sleep for more than 2 hours at a time. I
need a holiday from my chronic illness. Screw that I want a break from sobriety;
on days like today it’s really hard to be sober. Every fiber of my being is
crying for an escape.
As desperately as my mind wants to escape I don’t want to
lose control of my life. I am powerless over drugs and alcohol. So instead I will
rest and eat and take care of myself; effectively giving my body the energy it
needs to keep fighting.
You have every right to be proud of being clean or sober. Recovery isn’t easy. Becoming sober, staying sober and being sober in general are huge accomplishments💯. Please ignore ignorant people who make uneducated statements such as “why are you proud of doing what you should have done all along?” And similar statements that shame you for publicly speaking on your addiction and your feelings of pride on overcoming major obstacles.👊 I’m proud AS fUCK of you! Look at you using those healrhly coping skills! Wow!😍 That is hella rad that you didn’t harm yourself even though today was rough af. You made it through another day clean. You are living just for today, beating addiction and triggers ass every day.👊💯 You have good and bad days. Be proud of them all. The fact that you are still living helps the universe a lot. Being clean and sober is a PLUS. The universe needs you. Addiction is a part of Me; not the definition of me, or you. We have a horrible disease but we are more powerful. So keep being PROUD. you have every right to be proud of your recovery. Pray the ignorant who claim otherwise may find some much needed serenity and an educated brain. So proud of my tumblr babies, and everyone who is doing this!! . Xoxo- this has been a PSA from Nicole.😘💯👑👑💕
I get this so much better than the actual version… I wish someone had explained it to me this way on my very first day; then maybe I wouldn’t have had such a difficult time letting go and getting clean.
