To My SR Family a Confession
Thanks to all you missing me, I've been hiding out, isolating. Not a sip of vodka in months but have been getting scared, like it's just a matter of time--I always screw up. So I just kind of stayed low like I can't get 86ed if I keep my ass in the grass. Then it came to me that behavior was just pulling the pin and cradling the grenade (once again). So here I am. It's good to have my eyes open even if I don't always like what I see. I guess, bottom line, I need you all, lots of traps on the trail.

I'm glad your back
When I was isolating a couple months ago someone told me "I get drunk, We get sober"
Also that alcohol wanted to get me alone and if it did it would kill me.

So glad to hear from you. It can be so hard not to isolate, but it never leads to any thing good.

You are always missed, Fitz. It's scary when you disappear. Hope you're feeling better now that you have it out in the open.

Welcome back, Fitz. Crazy the ideas we get early in recovery. It's as if the addiction is trying to get us to isolate, to doubt ourselves. At least that was my experience. Glad to see you decided to listen to your instincts instead, reach back out again. Good to have you here!

Fitz, welcome back. You are FANTASTIC.
Success is making yourself do the thing you need to do when you need to do it whether you like it or not.
If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

Welcome back xxx
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

I'm now addicted to SR. It's helped me stay stopped for 14 months now.
Please hang with us, Fitz!!
Someday everything will all make sense.
For now, laugh at confusion, smile through tears,
& remind yourself that everything happens for a reason.
