Death of a People Pleaser...

I miss a lot of things every day of my life. It's so very exhausting! Like missing socializing. But the ways that I socialized were killing me in the process. I thought that if I accommodated what others felt was "cool" to fit in, I was cool too. But boy was I was wrong.

You have heard the term “willing to go to any lengths to get sobriety”. What does that mean? What is the reasoning behind all this? If I stop drinking and drugging, that should be enough, right?
