Yes, I Trash Can
My life is 4 trash cans with 3 lids—some garbage is always coming out somewhere.
i related on a deep level to this concept a woman shared in the rooms. It reminded me of before AA, when i tried to “sponsor myself”, to quit on my own. i’d be able to quit drinking but there was always another addiction that arose and screwed me over.
Fortunately, Recovery is helping me keep a lid on my troubles. Even when some of the garbage inevitably spills out, the quantity is smaller and the mess is a little less.
