Oh yeah. I'm Moving Out

My lease is up in December. My roommate told me she wants to live alone. I do too but it was still hard to hear. My only other option is to move home with my parents which would obviously be extremely unhealthy. So, I will be living alone. I found an awesome apartment, but I am really scared (see last post). Am I ready? To be alone that much? Do I have another choice?

Quit meetings. Don't believe in a higher power. Binged 3 times in the past 7 days. Doing better in some ways and avoiding my issues in others.



  1. I live healthier when I live alone. Sure, I have my bouts of "It would be so much nicer to have someone here with me to talk to," but I love living on my own. It's scary to be alone with your thoughts but sometimes really good stuff comes out with all the bad.

  2. Well, here I am. So even if it's too late, somehow I felt moved to contact you. I would be happy to put you on my list of people to call, believe me. I really believe in talking on the phone as a tool of recovery. I'm experiencing some awesome recovery right now, and I'd be happy to share some of my experience, strength and hope. (What else do I have to share?)

    It's OK that you don't believe in a Higher Power. The reality is that you actually do, you just don't realize it. You acknowledge, I'm sure, that there are things more powerful than you, right? That's the beginning step... Are you or are you not the most powerful being or thing in the Universe? If you're not, then you believe in a Higher Power.

  3. One more thing... You may have seen this already, but I think it's beautiful and profound:

    May you find peace, joy and contentment today. You are precious and valuable. You are worth it.

  4. This could be a really good move for you, taking control of your own destiny, working out what you want.

    Because your blog is fantastic I have passed on the 'Substance Award', feel free to pick it up at Thanks D...

  5. I think it's great that you're going to be living alone. You will have a lot of responsibility to yourself... and you can do it. You just need to trust yourself!! If there's no higher power for you... just trust in yourself!!
