Listen to others. I never wanted to admit that I was an alcoholic but eventually when I started listening to other people, things started making sense again. At around 9 months I gained the self-love back.
The main coping skill I use is connection. I’ve got a gratitude list with a couple friends and we check up on each other and we check-in and say “How’s everything going?” and what we’re grateful for today.
I have been working an AA program and staying connected with friends. That makes me feel less alone and isolated.
I do a lot of self-care. I’ve been drawing, painting and exercising.
Exercising is great, the endorphins give me the kick, I’ve been cooking a lot and audiobooks are great. Also knowing when to separate and take time for yourself. Expressing my feelings.
