Last week I attended the Recovery Cafe vfor the first time. It was the first time I’ve attended anything like this for quite some time. It was nice to meet and talk to others for a change. I have had a good week managing to keep clear of any temptation. I feel coming to the cafe has helped as a first step to meeting other people. I had an appointment with Voluntary Action North Lincs (VANL) and have signed up for a couple of courses. All this is building slowly to me spending my time more constructively which will help in my long-term aim to get and stay clean. It cannot be overstated just how important and helpful a place like the recovery café can be to me and others in my situation.
