You will have grown in many ways by making the changes needed to live in recovery. Your recovery will have been strengthened by the lessons learnt from the moment you made the decision to stop drinking and taking drugs. Whilst setback is expected, in fact it is a normal part of the human experience, by persevering and overcoming challenges, you grow in new ways, becoming stronger and more resilient than you were before.
It's wonderful that I can leave a note to the next person on this website. I am 4 years in recovery. Good luck with yours. Love from Lisa (a recovering alcoholic)
