Selfish Thinking

"For some the 'just do it for me' phrase is fine but when I was drinking I did not like myself much so that wouldn't work. I needed a bigger reason to change and my family was it. I needed something worth changing for. Everything can't be about me anymore. When I was drinking everything was viewed with selfish eyes and everything was viewed as how it effected me. Now, in recovery, I must watch how I hold on to problems. If I focus too much on my own struggles I move right back into the selfish thinking I was in when drinking." - L
