COMMENT OF THE WEEK Doesn't Count
This week, Elizabeth Brico shared why she doesn't count her days drug-free. While most readers agreed that holding every person in recovery to a perfect clean streak isn't the best way to go, some saw value in keeping themselves accountable.
I find it is common for people that frequently relapse, to not want to "have a sobriety date." These "blips and slips" are relapses in the recovery process. When you understand that addiction is a thinking disease, you will then begin to see the mental and emotional relapsing that takes place long before you physically pick up. Uninterrupted sobriety in recovery. Relapse does NOT have to be a apart of your journey. If you are allowing yourself to "blip" and "slip" and continue on without any work at all, without going back and starting new..working hard on sobriety, do you ever feel confident that you will live a life truly free from the chains of addiction? To thine own self be true.
