The Recovery Thread (The Other TRT)

    Since it seems like this is a thing a lot of people are dealing with right now, and ive been getting a lot out of NA meetings/sponsorships...I want to have this thread be like an ongoing Anonymous-style meeting. Some people even do skype meetings with people across the globe. You dont have to be 100% serious all the time, but try to refrain from being a faggot. And this is going to be a place where all the forum politics won't be. No matter how friendly you are with someone...if theyre doing something stupid or destructive, you can call them out on it here, and theyre legally not allowed to be butthurt in any other threads. Its also been really helpful for me to have a sounding board of people to run certain decisions by. So i dont have to obsess over whether im making the right choice or not (since i know im fucking crazy and i make some stupid decisions.

    Talk about whats going on with you, how you feel about it, what youre trying to accomplish. Im going to try to scan and upload all of the various workbooks and shit tomorrow, so you can do that shit if you want. Honestly a lot of the other shit is hella gay, but the step working guide has been really helpful.

    Anyway RIP in peace to this thread in advance, but lets talk about feelings. No homo. (ALL HOMO).

    Maybe what you have to conquer is this self doubt? Perhaps this thread is a harmful enabling of that self doubt.

    Have you never read the big book? William Bill Bill Krozbybys story? it's impossible for an addict to quit by themselves!

    This is an aspect of recovery that I sometimes go back and forth on. On one hand, I've had the addict tendency to not be secure in my own decisions without having someone or some people validate them, and I feel like I just need to take the risk and do whatever I need to do without caring what other people think. But also that "fuck everyone else i'm gonna do me" attitude can get me in shit neck deep real quick too.

    Yeah, me too. What I hate about AA is that they tell you. "You're thinking is inherently WRONG and you can only get sober by asking God to think for you and do whatever he tells you to do".

    Oof. Ok. But isn't it also by my own thinking that I allow God to think for me??


    And wasn't it also by my "inherently wrong thinking" that I thought to sober up and come to this meeting to stay that way??

    But yeah, basically you need to bounce your ideas off of other people so they can tell you you're being retarded and to do something else, so let's do that.

    How far do you guys wish to clean up? Is 100% sobriety the goal for some of you?

    i highly doubt i will ever be 100% sober, i want to be sober enough to apply myself to life though and not have that helpless drowning feeling. that pretty much means no meth, opiates (or anything opioid like), coke, or smoking weed 24/7. currently debating on etizolam, since i can be reasonably responsible with it and it has definite benefits for me

    I want to quit smoking so much weed and cigarettes altogether. Opiates ideally but that's not realistic given my issues with chronic pain
