Trying to stay clean.......
Posted by CANT TAKE NO MORE on 23 October 2014.
My son rang me today....his head was a mess, a small argument with his girlfriend which to him was the worst thing ever.....what should I do, I can't think straight, he told me......so I told him, don't think! Let the feeling wash over you (something he has never had to, whilst in the thows of addiction)....I told him it was ok to feel sad, angry, upset.....then we talked about coping strategies...my son is fighting back against addiction so feeling real emotions is unique to him....I also told him that he had achieved so much in a short space of time....that he needed to be kind to himself.....but the biggest thing for me was when he to,d me he had been asked to attend the work Xmas party.....his decision was to say no, recovery is more important....what a long way he has come....the weekend will be the clincher ......I hope he continues to make good decisions......but, I know it's hard....I pray he continues on the right road...
