The most momentous thing about my 96 days is that, in 96 days, I have not obsessed over drugs. In recovery attempts past (and there have been a lot of them) I never stopped obsessing over drugs. Not even just my DoC, but drugs in general. I was like a kid talking about candy or video games. Now it’s more like talking about the weather or something– it just isn’t that interesting. What a big change! It’s pretty crazy to notice this change in myself. I noticed when a newcomer in NA started glorifying drugs and for once I just kind of rolled my eyes at it instead of jumping into the conversation. That’s when I realized, the obsession was really, truly, gone. When the thought to use pops into my head, it passes just like any other thought. I don’t feed it, I don’t dwell on it, and I don’t obsess. THAT to me, is a gift of recovery, that I could not have gotten on my own. 🙂
