I'm really curious. I don't think a lot of people realize it but when you become an addict and then get clean you just aren't the same person you were in the beginning. I don't know about y'all but it changed me all the way down to the very core. I used to like going out all the time. Drinking coffee with friends in the morning, going to hang out or party at night, or even just going to hang out at the lake. Now it nearly takes an act of God to get me to leave my house at all. I avoid phone conversations like they are the plague. I have a comfort zone now and the only people I allow in it are my husband and kids. On here I am not under pressure to say the right thing; or even say anything at all if I don't want to. I'm okay with that. Holding a conversation with someone in real time is nearly physically painful for me. How do your 'before and after' differ? Was it a positive change or negative?
