RECOVERY

Monday, April 22, 2013

As my sponsor says, we codependents become human pretzels trying to please or control everything or everyone around us.
I have learned that I needed to find my own recovery; Im in recovery for being co-dependent and an enabler, from a broken heart, from the lies, the drug abuse, etc. I want you all to know that the best gift I gave myself was finding a 12 step program.,and recovery of self. May you find it too

    BIG HUGS!!! I found my first 12 step help 37 years ago...still read my very worn 7th copy of Serenity New Testament and Psalms every day...has the steps reviewed and makred in the bible verses that fit them.... and once past the dependence on alcohol, I still struggle with the food issues. Keep up the program, talk to those in the group, daily talk through YOUR needs and find ways of filling in the gaps so you will not feel so terribly ALONE... more big hugs... strangely, a puppy helped me a lot!! just so you know.
