I request a recovery topic to be:
Having to “be there” –
I relish the fact that sobriety means being present –
for my mother’s death, for my partner, for my friends, for my work –
but sometimes I still just really want to get out of my head, cut loose, forget myself, sign out.
Is this drunk thinking, or might there be safe ways of approximating this (books, music, film?)
This is what we will discuss tonight, how do we battle recovery fatigue
