Getting these Events off My Chest
So far writing about groups is making me see how I impacted some of my friend’s lives. I’m glad I’m getting these events off my chest.
I Feel Good About Myself
I feel good about myself. I realize I’m not a complete loser after all. Yay me!
I’m Just Glad I’m Sober and Happy
I feel inspired today. I am happy that I am still alive and have this opportunity to get my life back. It feels great to be sober and be able to wake up and fall asleep everyday without being sick. I am very happy to have support from my family and the staff members here. Being on Groups in course makes me realize how many relationships I’ve damaged because of my addiction whether it be friends, co workers or bosses, and how much drugs have taken a toll on my life. I’m just glad I’m sober and happy.
I Have Found Course to be of Great Value to Me
I have found course to be of great value to me. It has made me think about people, places and things that I haven’t thought about for quite some time. Course has forced me to confront my long held feelings and memories. It has been positive.
Beneficial Course Work
Throughout the Handles course work and Analyzing Personalities course work, I found it really beneficial. Not only did I disregard how others influenced my decision making in the past, but I disregarded how these anti-social personalities were influencing me to do the wrong thing, such as drinking or drug use.
Feeling Much Better
I’m feeling much better than I was. Eating more and I have gained 10 lbs. I’m 158 now. Sleep is coming back too.
Feels Good to Get Things Off My Chest
When I first started course it was difficult to start writing at first. As this being my 5th day, it has gotten much easier and feels good to get things off my chest. I am taking my time and getting it done slowly.
