Fun why quit? Maybe if you stopped preaching so much and had some fun, there would be more success?
Hello, my name is Kimberly and I am a recovered heroin and cocaine iv user of 2 decades.
On my road to sobriety, I used this title and believed we all just needed to have more fun. Translation; avoidance. My world had fallen apart, lost everything, twice, and I was using a fundometer as the reason why I couldn't stay clean.
Truth be known, without drugs I was terrified how I would have fun or at least enjoy things clean. I didn't want to be one of the depressing 12 step program members any longer. They spoke of things that were too close to home and too painful.
What I didn't realize until my sponsor asked me, "Kimberly" can you give me just one example of what your fun was like using? and if it was better than being clean? If so, get back out there girl, and continue the fun.
Sobriety, Why? I was at the entry level of scared to death trying to do things my way not willing to understand I needed help.
Help for me was like taking a bullet. Yup, I had to surrender and take a leap of faith that these people were honestly happier as timed passed with the help of one another. Slowly fun was not my goal anymore but sobriety was and then hope, trust, love and happiness. I was scared because I had never felt or trusted these feelings before.
Now I actually do and am grateful every day that goes by sober, I love today, not yesterday or tomorrow, I love today. Pretty cool to be sober long enough that anyone who wants help - I'm here, and I sincerely promise you your best day high or drunk doesn't come close to the fulfilling notion and new moments of your worst day sober
