You know how I am always bewildered that J can be sober but totally still be entrenched in addictive behaviors? Well, it feels different this time…really different. In an almost spooky kind of way. He has joined the human race! Things are far from perfect but they are umm different! LOL HONESTLY…the problem has always been the same old story different day, been there done that…get the picture? Different feels good right now…very good.

I am a mom of 4 who thought she was home free when my oldest son went off to college. My serious blunder? Genetics and being naive or maybe just plain stupid.

    Remember, that when they move into reovery, they still have a lot to learn about growing up and maturing! If you are seeing STEPS in the right direction, even if they are small, that is a victory for J!

    I find it interesting (and this is definitely me), that I was often a willing participant to climb into the addiction roller coaster car and ride all the ups and downs. However, when they get on the recovery roller coaster,I seem less willing to go along for the ride!

    Jump on and enjoy this part of the ride as well! You deserve to feel happy about his progress instead of sad about his lack of progress.

    I sure do know what you mean! Yes, enjoy it and see it for what it is, progress! I hope he keeps moving in the right direction, but if not also remember its progress, not perfection, that matters. Keven had made major changes then a short relapse and now is heading back to the good place he was. I started to be devastated that he could slip up when doing so good. I feared that all the progress would vanish and he’d be back to square one. But it doesn’t work that way (thank goodness). Each day he’s getting closer back to the good place and once he gets back there, he will start growing again. (ha, listen to me predicting the future!) In any case, I am very happy to hear about J!!!!!!

    Happy to hear things have taken a turn in a better direction! We just never really know which “incident/situation” will be the one that begins change. One day at a time and slow and steady wins the race!! Praying for continued change for J and well deserved rest, peace and serenty for you!! Kristi

    That’s great to hear!

    I understand – my addict is 6 months into a methadone clinic and doing well (others have also commented on the change), but I STILL am kinda waiting for the other shoe to drop. Praying it doesn’t, but….
    So, take one day at a time, pray and enjoy the little daily pluses. Hope springs eternal.

    Rejoicing with you, praying with you, standing with you…
