My gratitude speaks
When I care
And When I share
The NA way.
I got a head that wakes up and starts telling me how fucked my life is and how much of a worthless piece of shit I am and how I will always let everyone I love down and end up a lonely old piece of shit. If I am using my head tells me to use more because it doesn’t matter anyway as I already fucked everything up irreparably.
Without a program of recovery I can personally guarantee it wont take me long to fuck everything up royally and end up doing everything I feared. Hurting people I love and distancing myself from anything good in the universe. My program of recovery has to start early in my day, as soon as I open my eyes I have learned to admit I am an addict, make the decision to not use just for today and thank my higher power for keeping me alive to find a life in recovery.
It’s almost a semi automatic process now I allow myself to start identifying the things in life for which I am grateful, and on a day where the internal negative chatter is really loud I write these things onto a blank piece of paper as a “fuck you” to the disease that is in the corner doing push ups ready to take me out for my next use. A gratitude list is an essential tool for recovery and can be as simple as:
That list took me 10 minutes to write and I could write the same things for the next 100 days. The more I practice my gratitude the more it grows and the more chance I have to tell my head or disease to fuck off so I can enjoy my day in recovery 🙂
