I call myself a recovering addict from alcohol and marijuana in which it's called Dual Diagnosis. In the most promising way I have ten months of recovery time under my belt. I have a Mental Disease which I was born with from birth. Everything I pass by an establishment like a bar, or an liquor store, I can't help but think, what would that be like if i had some at this very moment. Especially the Vodka. Maybe the Margaretta. Or I see someone smoking s cigarette and thinking it a marijuana looking. It a serious illness I have inquired within. A sponsor and the Step Three: Knowing I'm completely helpless and have myself surrender completely over to a Higher Power. I'm doing that right now with my Sponsor. I'm very strong with myself. Dual Diagnosis isn't something to laugh about. Especially when I have (O.C.D.) Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Everything that is rendered mentally ill can be contributed to physically ill too. I am thinking about my nest hit... But I am also thinking I will be letting myself down and wasting my sponsor time cause he wouldn't or couldn't identify with me anymore, even though he would be beside me 100% or the time. Plus I would be wasting my time too relapsing to square one again, having to go back to 30 days 30 meeting all over again... I'm too smart for relapsing. In two more months I will have a year medallion. I can hardly wait. Even though it's one day at a time. That all I can do, one day at a time. When I reach one year I can be a temporary sponsor of my own. I have done my best to successfully recover. I have climbed the mountain to slowly maintain a cooking class at the old Community Connections. Plus going to Recovery Learning Center for Drugs and Alcohol Anonymous Meetings and games. Slowly gaining my ability to eventually go back to Pathways Therapy Organization. Talked to my old therapist there. He wanted me to come back. I guess that is why I thought "Recovery is Real" Michael from Taunton
