I can feel a hundred and one kinds of crazy …but how I act is what I’m held accountable for.

I learned that in recovery.

I would drink to forget like any other stereotype only to learn that my thoughts would not stop nor would I feel better. In the end alcohol just does not work. It won’t do much more than make you stupid or cause you to black out and regret everyone’s actions.

Yep. You can never ‘control’ your thoughts (perhaps in time but nope not now!). I can not control when I get triggered to be angry, or have an impulse to use. But, given enough pause, I CAN control the 2nd and 3rd thought.

That’s where god comes in for me - to give me that pause. The pause also turns the impulse into a conscience decision, which is where accountability comes in (for me).

Also, meditation has been HUGE for me. Again, it’s not about controlling thoughts, but rather teaches you to let them go. I use Headspace and they describe it as a lawn chair in the middle of a highway where the cars are your thoughts. You learn to just let them pass on by without grabbing on to them!

Anyway, best of luck!

Pause, pray, proceed — gotta be my favorite slogan.
