It doesn’t matter whether it’s a new career, academic education, or a meeting- you treat them all the same and dive right in. Start introducing yourself to new people and connecting. This is one of the first major pieces to the puzzle of recovery. We all need help and require friendship of some sort. It’s simply human nature to want to connect and relate to something or somebody.
To feel understood is something most individuals crave The good news for newcomers is to not be discouraged. We codependents, addicts and alcoholics are all unique in our own ways, but we are not special. We have all experienced much of the same fears and struggles as the next. We all have a common enemy, the disease of addiction.
