EP75- When you feel bad or feel down and you think nothing is working- that doesn’t mean it’s not working.
I want you to think about your sobriety and imagine it as an actual bank account- and, at the beginning, because you haven’t made any deposits, it’s totally empty.
When you make enough deposits, the interest starts to grow and you can live off the interest a bit because it’s built up. But here’s where you make a mistake- you make a few deposits, you feel like you have really deposited a lot so you start to make withdrawals- you skip meetings, you meet those friends at a bar instead of spending time with your family or sober friends.
Your sobriety and recovery will always be a direct result of the deposits you make in your sober bank. Your recovery never lies- and the strength of your recovery is always a direct reflection of the deposits you are making.
