Did I truly fail, so bad in my duties as a Mother? Or is it not so bad these days as wives and moms can actually do other things besides cooking? Any thoughts…

Am I failing as a mother?

I mean Seriously, when I asked my daughter(age13), to please put two waffles in the toaster. So, she brings in a really hot plate with her shirt covering the side of it, and two extremely crispy, stuck to the plate waffles. Instead of putting them in the toaster, she puts them in the microwave for Three Mins! Lol! I should have taken a pic of her trying to convince me they were edible, as she couldn’t even take a bite of it. I’m npt much of a xook, always hated cooking so I don’t do it much, but really daughter? So she is currently making them again the right way, and even though she burnt frozen waffles to a plate, I’m still lucky to have a daughter awewt enough to make them for me. I love my children!
Sincerely,

Hold Mock Funerals for the addict/for yourself and show them the future if they don’t get help…

Try this, and actually perform a burial for your addiction. Write down your addiction and explain it and how it messed up your life and the awful experience you had with it, including if your kids were taken or you lost a spouse or family because of it and put it in a container of some kind and seal it up!

Have you a support group or one Close supportive person to attend with you! Grab a shovel and start digging a grave for your addiction because it’s dead now and it is never coming back it literally can’t! Grab your pre written burial ulogly that says here lies my addiction, it was loved by me and hated by me and hated by all others…. etc…., and then toss it in the grave.

After its burial, say one last goodbye and you walk away without it and leave it there.

This is a great way to keep your addiction really gone and I hope y’all take my advice and it’s helpful to you because some people will be better able to understand that it’s not about to come back, it’s dead and that’s impossible dead things don’t come back!

A Toolbox for Recovery: What to put in yours.

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM A TOOLBOX?

Whether you are thinking about sobriety, are in the early stages of it, or are well into it, you can benefit from having a Toolbox. Actually, if you are human you can benefit from a Toolbox.

If you are still drinking/drugging/whatevering, you can start incorporating these things NOW. By doing this, you effectively soften the blow when you remove the harmful substance. Adding in healthy coping tools before the quit creates new habits, new synapses in the brain, new circuitry. You effectively train yourself to seek the healthy coping mechanism/tool, and as you move through quitting the bad stuff, your body has learned other ways to self-soothe/balance/cope.

#AmyzAlleyrealRecovery-A personal note:
The most used “Tool” that I have in my own Addiction Recovery Toolbox, is for times of acute and sudden stress, days in which im feeling particularly depressed or am so close to giving in, can be accessed through anyone’s YouTube app! I made a #motivationinRecovery playlist and added all my favorite speeches or talks, or songs that motivate me to keep going and to not give up. I listen to them and slowly but surely my thinking eventually begins to change and I get that boost of confidence I need to realize that not only was I triggered, but I can name what triggered me, note any red flag thoughts or actions that I had prior to that and begin to plan ways to better avoid that in the future, even potentially training myself to catch the red flags, and then immediately redirect myself towards something that effectively holds my attention and mind away from the problem/problems that lead me to thinking about giving up my sobriety. I’m not near there as of yet, but with practice I know I can be my own defense and win in the long as long as I prepare for absolutely anything that could cause me to fail.
