Addiction Recovery: Everything Is Copacetic

April 2, 2010 — 1 Comment

You know, I’m going through this period of time in my addiction recovery when everything feels copacetic. This is not to say that every aspect of my life is perfect right now…it’s not. So how am I feeling so great?

I had talked earlier about having peace of mind in addiction recovery and some how I have managed to hold onto that mind set.

It’s comforting knowing that I have developed some addiction recovery coping skills. You know, skills other than getting high and numbing myself to deal with stress.

One thing I am finding is that I have much less to blog about when everything is going along good in my recovery. I guess I just don’t have as much to get off my chest as I normally do.

I wanted to keep this blog kind of on a personal level but what do you do when there isn’t anything that interesting going on? I’m not that self absorbed to think everyone would be that interested in my normal day to day routine. So what is one to do?

I guess I could take a page out of the Discovering Alcoholic Book and blog about some topical things. But I fear that I would pale in comparison to his writing skills.

I guess you all will have to be board reading just how great it is I’m feeling. What I’m fearing is that I will look like one of those people who don’t tell you the real deal and just give you the good stuff. Those people that try to make you think everything is wonderful in their world and if it is not the same in yours, something is wrong with you.

Ranting and Raving when I was pissed off or sad came pretty easily…I guess now the work begins. I will really have to put some time and effort into coming up with some topics to blog about.

  1. i am also a blogger. i really feel it is most important to share when you are feeling well. find a way, just like you did when you were feeling lousy. I need to hear the good stuff. others do too. so much of recovery stories are filled with pain and failure and we are starving for the good news, of how it is to feel healthy, no matter where you are in recovery. there is no way someone who has been through what you have will come off pollyanna in any way. we need to know what feeling good is all about.

    thanks for your words and congratulations. Is that picture on your blog a recommendation for Duffy’s???
