In my addictive behavior,

I probably broke trust with those who care about me in various ways,

such as lying and keeping secrets.

Since my addiction spanned many years,

the people affected by my addiction doubted my recovery,

especially since I tried to control my addiction before.

Building trust takes time;

I have to continue to prove that I can do this one day at a time.

Let’s go t you first, N,

Before program, how did you lose the trust of your loved ones? employers? Friends?

In what ways did you lose trust?

Did you know that you were not trusted at that time?

What was it like when you first came in, were you able to regain trust immediately?

How did that make you feel?  Why did you feel this way?  What part of self was being threatened?

What character defect was in effect?

What part of the program helped you with this feeling of frustration?

When did you start to regain trust?  example?
