Feeling Good

"When I first started in recovery I would often feel wrong for feeling good." - L

- After years of wrong choices and heartache many in recovery report a struggle with allowing themselves to enjoy success or feeling good. Some say they need a certain amount of days sober to be worthy of some good things. Some are afraid if they get too happy they may relapse. Don't forget that the idea of recovery is to live in the moment more. To be yourself now, not when x,y,z happens, is the objective. You have for so long neglected yourself and put obstacles in your way through alcohol or drug use that it may seem odd to actually feel good. Don't be afraid of success, acknowledge the good moments when they come.
