When I think about sobriety and all the wonderful gifts it brought me, I can only thank my lucky stars that I’m still clean. I try not to remember the past with bitterness in my heart because it really only causes pain and it is negative. Sure, it’s easy to say when I was using, I was so this or so that..and, at first when you are finally sober, you need to recall how you used to be.
God knows how many ambitious or worthwhile projects never got done because I was just too stoned. Guilt can really destroy a person and it’s not healthy to dwell on the past. Simply recall enough to remind yourself that you never, never, ever want to go back there. Life is too short to be loaded 24/7.
