With the understanding that addiction is a disease and the realization that we are powerless over it as well as over people's lives, we are ready to do something useful and constructive with our own.
Then, and only then can we be of any help to others.
I'm very sleepy from staying out too late last night hanging out with some friends.. but the realization that I am sleepy because I was out with MY friends and not running the streets to get my ALO drugs.. or dong things for him or with him to keep him from whatever is SO nice!
I also realized how many people are in my life that really are there because they CHOSE to be. It's a nice uplifting feelings after being town down for so long! So.. to my Nar-Anon friend who texted me, thank you. and though they can not see it.. I am thankful to have my other friends in my life! They truly do remind me that I am worth this recovery.. because I OWE it to MYSELF!!!
Feeling SOOO much happier (yet a lot more tired!) than I was days ago! I feel... Centered.. for today.. and I will take it!!

Yay I'm glad you are feeling good have a nice sleep and enjoy tomorrow:) I'm doing Lyra Week this week and letting my ALO enjoy his week without me getting in his face about his drug use or being upset because he's not spending time with me. Im spending it on me, hanging with friends, going to meetings, working on step 4 and getting lots of research done! I hope your week is an awesome Lexie Week:)
