Recovery is fluid. What I mean by that is your needs change. So what you need in early recovery, for example, I needed structure, I needed guidelines, I needed an immediate community, I needed a program of recovery. And I found that in a 12 step program, but as I progressed, I needed less structure and rigidity. And I needed to be able to grow and not feel constrained in any way. I had to find my own pathway. But I felt a lot of shame around that….So know that your needs will change and that’s okay.
