I minister to many men and women looking to break the cycle of addiction. I may not have a diploma in consoling but I hold the highest honors of street education, this is why i can relate. I've been strung out on heroin, a crackhead and a alcoholic. Today I'm 14 yrs free from all drugs a nd 2 two from drinking.
I've had periods of sobriety but always went back...….why? This is what I've learned and taught people it's called filling the void. When you remove something that occupied your entire life for years there is a sense os being empty. Boredom sets in you don't know what to do with your self. Next thng you know this is what I would say if I'm goibg to be misreble sober i might as well be wasted so I don't know it.
Best advice I give is get plugged in. This can be AA,CA,NA CR or church. When you surround yourself with like minded people that have been thru it they can help fill the void. You have to be filled with something. For me its The Holy Spirit. I feel my time talking about thewy out or the cure which for me nis Jesus.
I have ties with many mens and women's ministries which are 100 % FREE!!!!!!! I'M JUST A GUY. I went from drug dealer to hope dealer. HIT ME UP

Everything is written correctly, straight to the point. When an emptiness arises, we fall to the bottom if it is not filled with good moments. I was helped by relatives and when there was a moment to return to alcohol, I began to work as a volunteer in an animal shelter. This helped me.

Great post buddy! Good My way of filling the void I guess like many of us is to train, for 2 or 3 hours at a time. Thats what gets me my High and state of euphoria that I use to chase with drink. That will then last the rest of the day and then at night when I would usually be sat with a glass of vodka and orange under my nose I now spend that time enjoying my food and protein shakes Lol When I was an alcoholic all I ever wanted was to be able to 'Not drink' on a night and feel content in being sober - now I have that dream Smile
