Thankfully I met a lovely person who showed me the insanity of the decisions I was making. Once I realized this was wrong I still had a long road to actually recovering. A road I'm still currently on but I'm driven to change the negative programming in my brain. I use meditation among other things to do this. I no longer use drugs or alcohol whenever things get tough I just amp up the meditation and learning. Im in this group looking for people who are similar to myself. I also am looking for guidance and possibly a spiritual teacher. I meditate but I am not a spiritual person but I wish to be. I hope for as much feedback on this one as possible. Some input on what I said would be great. Advice is always helpful.
Hey good to know that meditation helped you out. I would also suggest you to go with Yoga retreats
