The unavoidable facets of our daily lives; whether it's work, school, friends or family, these are the interactions we face every day. In order to deal with the daily PPT's, it is important we have our own house in order. That is, do we have a plan for the day? Are we mentally, emotionally and spiritually fit to deal with a difficult person or place?
The process may involve prayer, calling a sponsor or conferring with a friend about an upcoming event. Remember any problem shared becomes 1/2 a problem. I look at recovery as a structure, built on a foundation; the strength of the foundation is reinforced through meetings, asking for help and admitting that no matter the challenge, there is nothing that a drink will solve or change.
Anxiety does occur as a result of fear and uncertainty, but it can be managed by a positive and grateful attitude. As long as we remember to stay vigilant and moving forward, there isn't anything we can't cope with.
