Today's Coping Skill is "Honesty- Secrets and lying are at the core of PTSD and substance abuse, honesty heals them." Be honest about what you are going through. If you struggle with addictions, then be honest with the people you trust about them. They can help you with your recovery. Don't be afraid to tell the truth!


Note for Today's Coping Skill: I don't know how it relates to PTSD, but I can see how it relates to substance abuse. I have PTSD but I don't know how being honest about it helps me. I'm honest about it with the people who need to know (see yesterday's Coping Skill notes about my dad's suicide- that's one of my PTSD triggers) but it didn't help it. Exposure therapy worked for that instead.
