House of Cards
Is it enabling? Is it helping?
Is what she says the truth? Is what she says a lie?
It is collaborating with recovery? Is it collaboration with addiction?
Do I lend him 10 dollars? Do I hold the 10 dollars that will potentially end up in his veins?
Does he live at home? Do I ask him to leave?
Can we trust? Should we remain on guard?
Forgive or not to forgive?
Is this person a sponsee? Is this person a dealer?
There are so many cards in the deck!
Learning to build your recovery is not easy. Many of the of the cards in the deck can be treacherous until we begin to use the skills we develop as builders. Everything, including recovery, takes practice. Keep practicing!
peace and strength
