Lovely post. One line bought up a saying that I’ve always found really apt in the early and later stages of recovery and fits in nicely with this line you wrote
” I’ve had some traumas to deal with since I got home, which were quite traumatic to say the least, but at least I didn’t go running to gambling!”
I wish this was mine, but this is Charles’s line
A good week is when nothing really goes wrong and you don’t gamble
A Brilliant week is when trauma hits and you don’t Gamble
Welcome to the land of recovery and well done on having a brilliant week.
The difference between now and when we first spoke is amazing, you should be so proud of yourself
