"When I was drinking there was this cloud of deceit that floated in front of me at all times. It was my drama distractor. To get to me one would have to penetrate this cloud." - Barb

- When someone sobers up and enters recovery and they start to see all the deceit and drama they have created it can be overwhelming. Don't let the past get the best of you by focusing too much on it right away. Remember that drinking or using drugs is just one aspect of your life and not all of you. Focus on developing the positive aspects of yourself whenever the past creeps in.
