Hi Lauren I just moved some of your words around
no judging at all

sometime it helps to see what it looks like between the lines

I like hookahs and wanted to smoke out of it.
they said they had smoked pot out of it
and against my best judgement I smoked out of it.

I know for me my best judgement is what brought me into this program :D

Luv YA Your Sister in Sobriety Cess KCB !!

Hey your note reminded me of a share I heard this morning.

Someone said and I love love love it "I can manage everyone else’s life except for my own" The correct answer in the blank is __________________ 8)

That's it. My best judgment right there in them words. It also brought me here.

Powerless over people, places, things and chocolate!!! (I guess that's a thing!! or maybe a place)

Ha ha ha :roll:

Dallas wrote:Hi Lauren, welcome to the site! Glad to have you. The nearest I can relate to it is: My friends came over and had a bottle of Jack Daniels. They drank it all -- and then, they put some ice tea in it for me and encouraged me to drink my tea out of a Jack Daniels bottle. (This is a metaphore... didn't really happen). :lol:

Would you think, that I was:
1. Sane.
2. Smart
3. Dumb
4. Insane
5. Headed on a road for some big time trouble?
6. WTF? Where is your head????
7. Should I feel guilty?

Perhaps, if you can answer that question for me -- you might have a clue about your ideal answer for yourself. :lol:

Myself -- I would feel more than guilt. I would feel terrified! It's kind of like two stories in the Big Book:

1. The guy that poured a little whiskey in his milk and said: "Maybe this won't hurt me -- considering I have no intention of drinking, getting drunk, and besides... a little milk never hurt me!" :lol:

2. The Jaywalker story: After his legs and back were broken several times, and he swore over and over and over and over again, he would never do it again -- on the day they wheeled him out on a wheel-chair, he jumps out of the chair and runs in front of a trash truck and a bus! :lol: :lol:

If I did that myself -- I would consider myself as "already in relapse -- waiting for my next drink!"

If I was serious about my recovery -- I would make some huge changes mucho pronto.

I don't know if that helps you -- but, I'm sure it helped me.

Best wishes to you,

Dallas thanks. Your answer was really helpful!
