Still improving. I was able to cook for myself a couple times this week. That's always a good sign; it means I have the energy to take care of myself. Wish I could normalize my sleep now. Having problems with insomnia and then not wanting to get up when I finally do get to sleep. I signed up for a keyboarding class through parks and recreation which hopefully will get me out and meeting people who share my interest in music. Have almost a social life now, nothing going on during the weekends but stuff to do almost every night during the work week. I don't see my friends very often, not that I have that many, but this is more like hanging out with new people that I only consider to be acquaintances.
Nonetheless I am isolating over the weekends which I need to address. I am having a hard time staying clean, the obsession with using has been in the forefront of my mind for a couple days now. If I had it around I'd probably be relapsing regardless of the consequences. Except I'm not drinking and I do have that in the house. I really want my drug of choice but I don't have a hookup. I even have cravings to start smoking again although I quit 13 years ago. I think I'm using porn as a replacement as I am going to it more and more often lately.
I want to replace the time I spend on that with something that leads to achieving a goal, either taking more classes or practicing music. I just need to build the structure into my life and I am procrastinating that because I don't know very well what I want to do. Maybe I'm trying to do too much too fast. I want to pretend I'm all better now but I'm only slowly dragging myself out of basically doing nothing. Maybe I'm going too slow though too and should challenge myself more. I don't know what to do.
