Feeling Hopeless

created by: Soberinthecity 5 months, 2 weeks ago

I'm 50 days clean and sober from drugs and alcohol after consistently using for around 12 years. I recently completed treatment and now back in the real world. I'm able to effectively deal with my cravings for drugs and alcohol but now spending, gambling and sex are starting to control my life. I just feel like I'll never truly be happy and rid of addictive behavior. I also don't want to be a part of several different fellowships and have that consume my life. Anyone have similar experiences in early recovery?

Watch out for the words, "I want." They often create stress and conflict with doing the next right thing. Mybe pick a fellowship and throw urself in it wholeheartedly.. Be happy with what you have, not for what you want.
