Sick & Tired of being Sick & Tired

So we all heard the term “sick and tired of being sick and tired”, right? These clichés were very common for me early in sobriety, even when I was a chronic relapser.  I used to have constant dialogue going on in my head telling me I wasn’t good enough, I was useless and nobody likes ...
