"I didn't know if I should call."
"I didn't want to disturb you."
"I wasn't sure it was any big deal."
They are excuses I've heard for not calling a sponsor or another addict before slipping back into the nightmare of active addiction. One sponsor gave this "Should I call?" checklist to her newest relapse queen.
Answer the following:
1. Am I worth recovery?
2. Am I worth some of this person's time?
3. Would I give that person some of my time if that person called me?
4. Do I really want back into the nightmare?
6. If you answer "Yes" or "No" to any of the questions above, CALL!
