I don't know if I could have recovered from addiction a year ago if these were the circumstances coming out of the hospital. In person appointments and meetings, basic walks to buy and make food when roommates were at work, were 95% of the recovery the first 2 or so months. Even now, I'm wary of myself, under good conditions. I'm not sure it would be possible under lockdown conditions.

It's just taking it one day at a time and learning to roll with the punches until these things don't phase you too much anymore.

Not exactly the same, but I'm worried about my mental health.

it is 100% the same. I was stable and doing great before something in life hit and I crashed.
So many strong peeps I know right now can withstand a week or two more of this... but another month.... nobody can say how they'll get through this.
hugs. stay strong. reach out. :)

Addiction fucking sucks. It’s the worst thing ever so just focus on staying straight and being healthy. You have all this time now to focus on that so keep it in your sight. It’s like getting out of an abusive relationship. When you’re being controlled by someone it’s awful so when you break free you have all this time and don’t know what to do. It’s why a lot of people go back to their abuser. Just stay strong. I’m doing this with you. It’s tough but it’s totally worth it.
