Hi everyone, just wanted to share something that helps me in recovery. I made a list of all the pros and cons of my relationship with drugs. Yes, there are "pros", but the "cons" obviously strongly outweigh them, or I wouldn't be seeking sobriety. The reason for this is that when I am in withdrawal or sober, I only remember the good feeling I get from being high. I never remember all the bad stuff that comes with it. Making a "pros and cons" list helps me remember that the bad outweighs the good. On this list, I also write my reasons for staying sober. I keep it with me and refer to it whenever I feel like using or get down on myself for being on the straight and narrow. Does anyone else do this, or something similar?
