So good that you are finding sobriety – which for me has always associated with clearer thinking, less obsessiveness, and more flexibility around everyday things not even associated with the addiction.….which makes it worth it all by itself. For me there is no doubt that keeping connections maintain this freedom. Connection with God and others. I need this everyday or I am vulnerable to all kinds of old stuff, so it is first priority regardless of anything else. Please call or text recovery friends, sponsor, or other accountability folks at the first sign of lust…This neutralizes its effects so it suddenly isn’t pouring over the dam and you wonder how you got to where you are.
