back to square ONE. time: 10:24am

Hi
So I am rebooting myself, we are highly sophisticated machines and so taking all these chemicals is like repeatedly throwing your hard drive against the wall and then pouring lard over it and still expecting it to work.
So. 1. I am clean except for prescribes anti depressants
2. Took one mg of alzam for withdrawal. I don't feel guilty about that.
3.Going to take vit B
4. Going to NA tonight (this is very difficult as I suffer from Social Anxiety but I must go I must want to go so I will go right? Ok. Ill try not to obsess over it the whole day.
5. Pray like I'm about to die violently.
Gone back to my annoying Agnostic phase but I am rather going to discuss it on my Blog.

I'm just glad there IS a step one. Imagine u screwed up and used and have to walk back to square one and it's not there.? Is that game over?
Thx for reading

Thank u so much for responding. There are no answers anyway!
It means A LOT to me that you commented coz I'm in a very powerless space, but the ppl on here give me strength. (And I was just thinking aloud!)

We are not sophisticated machines or we would not keep doing the stupid sh** we do. We are very complicated individuals with all the human failings!
