Getting Away With It - Then Anxiety
I am new to admitting that I have an addiction and am in therapy but I need to hear from people who also struggle with addictions. Mine does not involve substances. After a long time abstinate and I get really down for some reason I know my addiction will perk me up and then I think I can get away with it.
So I start small and within a few days I an really it again. Before I start I think I can get away with it – who cares – it really does not have any consequences!!!
So then I am in it and I feel so much better – I have an anxiety disorder and early on when I am acting on the addiction it helps the anxiety. I feel like I am getting away with it and wahoo I am on a roll.
THEN after a few days of weeks the self flagellation starts – is God going to get me – will it make my anxiety worse – I am bad – to hell with it I will do it no matter what.....then I crash with severe
anxiety and physical symptoms.
Can anyone relate to this

It's not even reportable. :-)
Strong people keep moving forward anyway, no matter what they're going to find.
