Default Dr. Twerski's Sober Thought - October

October 1

Why Deaden Your Feelings?

Some addicted people feel more intensely, and this holds true for all feelings pain, love, envy, hate, joy, pride, or compassion. When the addict recovers and abstains, what happens to those feelings? The person learns to handle them without recourse to chemicals, but the intensity does not change. So if you are a recovering person, you have paid a price for your heightened emotional sensitivity. You probably are hurt more easily and feel pain more intensely. However, these feelings make you so much more human, more interesting, and more lovable.
