A member of Castimonia has graciously volunteered to post a real time “play-by-play” journey through his recovery via his private journal entries. These posts will be made weekly and I pray it helps men in their journey through recovery.
Journal Through Recovery
This is my journey through recovery in real time, as it happens. I will give you insights and thoughts as they occur through every step of my experience. Feedback and questions are welcome. I make no claim of expertise or advanced knowledge. I am on the same path that many have followed. I am seeking guidance, support, wisdom, and prayer just like any other addict.
Join me each week as I give an unfiltered account of my hopes, prayers, anxieties, fears, and hopefully some learnings as well. I will start practicing rigorous honesty here…….I am terrified about being so transparent with emotions. As an addict, I am new at this whole intimacy thing. I hope you find something here that, in the words of my counselor, reinforces a primary truth….you are not alone!
