I've been a stay at home mother since 2012. As you can guess, that gave me plenty of time to sit at home and get into my own head because I had too much time on my hands. I recently decided to get back out into the work force. I was lucky that the day I actually really started looking, I found a local place having open interviews and I got a call less than 24 hours later that I was being hired. Now that I've started and have worked for a few days, I realized that I don't have nearly the time that I did to just sit around and think about things, so my addiction doesn't pop into my head nearly as often. I find myself not thinking about it at all some days, when it used to be constantly. Do you find that working helps to keep your mind busy and off of your addiction?
