S- From One Addiction To The Next
I got sober just over two years ago, on July 11, 2011. Let go of all drugs and booze. Started to let go of those resentments I was holding on to so tightly. My head cleared up…and the world looked so real. And authentic. WTF?!!!
I started to reach for any non-mind altering substance I could get my hands on in order to not feel totally “normal.” I had let go of caffeine, for the most part, when I was using because I mixed upper drugs with my alcohol, and felt like adding caffeine to the mix might just make my heart explode. But now that I was sober, caffeine was the first thing I ran back to. And I haven’t let go since.
Hello, my name is Donna, and I am a caffeine a-holic. I am powerless over it. And I accept that. And I have zero desire to let go of this addiction, so don’t even think about having an intervention with me!
And please don’t speak to me until I have had my morning cup!
