What would it be like to be....Normal

Us recovering addicts refer to non addicts as Normies. I sit here wondering today how different my life would be if I was a Normie. Do Normies have the same thought processes as me? I'm sure they don't but to what extent do we differ?
I have the hardest time keeping balance in my life. Once I find something that I like I just can't get enough. I'm hooked. It is usually something that allows me to not face reality. Just like the drugs did. Whether it be TV, shopping, sex, food, the internet, you name it. I guess that is why there are some many 12 step programs. So perhaps more people are like me than I think.
What I have found to be true is that if I don't keep recovery in the forefront of my mind I will get really out of balance. I need to keep in contact with my higher power, go to meetings, and surround myself with other recovery addicts.
Today I'm grateful that I'm not extremely out of whack!

I've been under the weather too as far as depression goes. But you have the right mind and what it takes to go forward, jump slowly and don't trip, just take baby steps. I'm a proud parent and that is coming from me, a recovering alcoholic, well even recovering addict to many things. You are my angel and you have the strength to move continually forward. I miss you and Love you lotz !!!
