How are you going to be better about your recovery in 2020?
“I’m finally going to confront the deep, dark well of trauma I’ve been conveniently shoving to the back of my brain. First with drugs and alcohol, and now with just pure busyness. I’m finally going to try out emotional sobriety. I’m starting EMDR in February. ” – Allison K.
“Stop slacking on meetings and not isolate.” – Monica C.
“Stop telling myself that I am new to the area, and I just haven’t found the right support system. I have been living here for two years. A support system doesn’t just materialize without effort. I need to reach out to people.” – Ben W.
“I will make sure to remind someone that they are appreciated. I will forgive myself for the past without making excuses for my present or hindering tomorrow.” – John W.
“Connect. Find better ways to unite something of me with something beyond the boundaries of myself: politically, socially, emotionally.” – Adam G.
“I think I’m going to get more into astrology. Is that weird? Or is the fact that I worry it’s weird part of why it’s so helpful? Hmmm.” – Edith Z.
“I will file six years of back taxes and finally go back to school.” – Samantha.
“I need to make and keep sober friends in 2020. Someone to call or text who *gets* it. I’ve been solo sober among drinkers and it stresses me out.” – Dorothy H.
I am going to weed through all the regrets and missed opportunities and woe-is-me coulda-shoulda-woulda’s, ditch what is dead to me, and nurture the hell out of one or two things that still resonate as goals for the sober me.” – Laurel P.
