Day 3 -

Often we use our addiction to fill our sense of loneliness. There’s difference between being alone and loneliness. We can be in a room full of people and be lonely.

Those feelings of disconnection and emptiness or anger and sadness are some of the triggers that makes us susceptible to our using our substance of choice to numb ourselves.

There’s a saying “You’re only a sick as your secrets” . The more we sit with our loneliness, the more we isolate, the lonelier we’ll feel. For any addiction recovery process it is essential to reach out and have some kind of like minded community to support us. Deep and real connection is what our soul is seeking. All the twelve step programs embody this idea... by Finding community through support groups like AA and OA which provide sponsors who have been through the process and are there to support us when we need it the most. It’s also helpful to find friends who are healthy role models of what we want to be like.

Journaling and getting our feelings on paper to access the feelings we are so desperately trying to avoid. But we don’t have to sit alone with those painful feelings. We can call a sponsor or a friend to share and be comforted and affirmed which goes a long way toward our healing.
