What I'm wondering is what you people that are happy have to say about how to be happy. How do you over achievers get the motivation to do what you do? I'm trying to stay sober, but I don't think I can. I know I can't by myself, and I don't really have friends that I can hang around without jeopardizing my sobriety. My phone rings all day all night from friends that want to get high. I quit my job because I've never gone to work sober and I don't feel like working their would be conducive to my sobriety. I dropped out of college after freshmen year, I should go back to school I know. I don't know how to live a sober life, I don't know how to be productive, I don't know how to get shit done. What works for you people, or is it just an inherent skill that I've burnt away? I'm not helpless, but I am. I know I am, but I am proud and headstrong. Fuck man, I just don't know what to do. I need direction. I need a goal or something. It sounds so easy, but it really isn't.
